The year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. When Alex Murphy, a loving husband, father, and good cop, is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing. There is still a man inside the machine, pursuing justice.

I couldn't watch more than 6 minutes or so. The original is untouchable.

The remake that did not need to be. The concept of the 2014 RoboCop is irrelevant for today's audiences and is only a haphazard callback to the 80s. There were a few good ideas (investigating his own murder, family, relationship with Lewis), but absolutely nothing was hashed out and developed. Everything about it: characters, acting, setting, plot, writing, editing, BLAND. In the 1986 version, Peter Weller's acting convinced me that he was a cyborg. If it weren't for the visual and sound effects, Joel Kinneman's version is merely an ordinary man wearing a sleek spacesuit. On a positive note, and as mentioned, the visual effects are fantastic, but that is all that there is going for it.

This movie is about a robot that fights criminals and attempts to prevent crime, which is why he has “cop” in his name. In the future, there is a lot of crime in the city of Detroit and they need to stop it. They turn to a technological solution to assist them in their endeavors to reduce crime. The solution is the cyborg RoboCop. The robot was built from a deceased police officer named Alex Murphy, who was killed by a group of criminals led by a criminal named Clarence Boddicker. Once he is turned into a robot, he regains some memories of when he was still a living human and realizes he must go after Clarence. Overall, it was a great classic action film.

Good remake, but the original 1987 original is better. Enjoyable movie.

Exciting and cool action, however, the movie wasn't deep and the original was much better.

An excellent movie. Still not sure if I like the original (with Peter Weller) better or not, but either way they are both worth watching as they are different enough to make them both enjoyable.

This movie is a miracle. It takes one of the most characterless main heroes of 80s movies, and actively makes him have less character. It is also boring beyond belief. Think about every action movie you've seen last week and you'll basically get whatever this movie turned out to be. Watch only if it's the last movie in the world you haven't seen.

Meh. Some like it a little more, some a little less. I prefer the Vorhoven [sp?] version but i guess the bottom line is that this one is a crank turner, basically a scene-by-scene remake, squeezing the last few bucks out of the franchise.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Neighborly Notice: As by means of Robocop’s fast firing fusil finger, and it, with his gun having bullets blazing the barren and bodied skies… villains and antagonist, they drop as much like, dead flies. -X; Who
