Intellectual, emotion-packed, spectacularly acted Sci Fi is sabotaged by Fanboys (by solypsis)
Full disclosure: the original Robocop is among my top 5 favorite films of all time, and I've easily watched it over 200 times. With that being said, I still looked forward to this re-interpretation due to my love of the character whose legacy had already been profoundly tarnished by the redundant first sequel and catastrophically misguided second sequel and my admiration of director Jose Padilha's "Elite Squad" films as well as his documentaries . Suffice to say, I came into the theater with a bias toward wanting the film to succeed.I'm willing to acknowledge that it <more>
may be for this reason that I found this film to be a resounding if slightly flawed success. Conversely, it is my belief that a large contingent of overzealous "fans" were hellbent on seeing this film fail, therefore had pre-determined that the movie was trash. How could it possibly withstand several years of unwavering hatred during its production and be given a fair shot? Judging by the middling 6.7 IMDb rating and the 50% Rotten Tomatoes score, many people loathed the film just as much as they'd hoped they would.This viewer simply cannot accept that Robocop 2014 is anywhere near as bad as people are rating it. For starters, the film has been bashed mercilessly for idiotically trivial elements such as "His hand is human!", "His suit is black!", or worst of all, "I refuse to support a PG-13 version of Robocop". It is my firm belief that all of these criticisms are merely the ravings of closed-minded fanboys who are bizarrely searching for the next movie to "ruin their childhood". It's a phenomenon that is baffling and absurd. Anyway, I rated the film 10/10 on IMDb because I wanted the score to weigh heavier in the positive direction. Truth be told, I think the film is a solid 8 and may even grow to become a 9 over time. Of course it's not as good as Verhoeven's classic, and obviously it's much different in tone. For that I am grateful -- part 2 tried so desperately to ape the original that it felt like a rather soulless carbon copy albeit a copy salvaged somewhat by spectacular stop-motion effects and a great villain in Tom Noonan's "Cain" . I didn't want another movie trying to mimic the satire of the original, nor did I feel that anyone could ever one-up the hyper-violence of the 1987 version, so why try?There are those that argue that this film should have simply been called something else other than Robocop if it wanted to be so different, and I get that...except the bottom line is few studios will ever greenlight a $120 million dollar film without some kind of name recognition. It's a sad truth. But in utilizing the Robocop brand name, Padilha was given the funding to acquire a brilliant cast and design cutting edge digital effects. In my opinion, a little brand recognition is a fair trade off if it helps the film achieve the look and feel of a high-end sci-fi blockbuster.Anyway, I've already babbled several paragraphs longer than I'd intended. The bottom line is you should abandon your preconceptions and watch the movie for what it is: a genuinely smart, heartfelt and wonderfully acted sci-fi featuring characters we know and love. What's so awful about that?
To start, I'm a Robo fan since I was 3. Have seen the 1987 movie like 30+ times. Have lots of merchandise and even a tattoo. Stop reading reviews, go to a cinema and watch it. If you can get there alone better, girlfriends don't like this movies in valentines weekend, and old Peter Weller fans will talk dirt about it even without watching it.The movie is Perfect. Different than the original but it is not better and it is not worse. I'm not a Marvel super heroes fan but the Avengers movie/IronMan3 are the top 10/10 in the scale to compare with Robocop. And Robo gets a 9/10. Forget <more>
it is a remake. Forget it is a PG13. Forget the human hand. Forget it is not Peter Weller. Watch it and you will rate it 8+/10 for sure.
SOLID ACTION -Pure Entertainment (by milcrube-389-359735)
I just saw the premier of this movie today here in the Philippines and I was amazed by the special robotic effects how would they formed up all those sorts of technology the movie came into futuristic look like perfection. It's kinda different than the classic Robocop, however, this movie stands of its own story and interesting plot with up-to-the-edge of your seat ride of the intense gun fire action scenes. As far as robotic kind of movie is concern, for me, this is far better than "Iron Man 3" and Hugh Jackman's 2011 "Real Steel".If IMDb would only allow me to <more>
rate this movie more than 10 stars, then maybe I already would have rated this movie to the most top of their rating section. If you're looking for intense computer-game-like rapid gun fire action and jaw-dropping stunt entertainment then this is for you. This movie has also better family-drama attachment story than the classic one.THIS IS A MUST TO WATCH MOVIE to date this month, don't listen to the brickbats, they have weird tastes of the movie they like, but go watch and entertain yourself!
Dear fellow movie buffs and Robocop fans! Let's make something clear at the beginning: I'm a huge RoboCop fan, absolutely LOVE the original movie and I advice anybody who feel otherwise stop reading this review further because it is gonna be about something you do not care about: the new RoboCop movie! I watched the RoboCop remake Saturday evening with my other half and as usual I came here to IMDb to check on the reviews and what other people thought of it. I do not write a lot of reviews but this time I absolutely felt the need to write one, as I was shocked to see how people <more>
bashing this movie into the ground. Of course it is the usual drill: comparing it to the original, what the new one missed out, the new robo design... etc. I just do not understand most of these people. When I heard that there is gonna be a RoboCop remake I was very happy to hear the news. And it is NOT because I dislike the original! It is because there were no RoboCop movies made for over than 2 decades and I love the material. I wanted the story to continue or something. And we finally got to what I wanted to say! This RoboCop movie is by NO mean bad! When I went to the cinema both me and my girlfriend - who also a fan of the original - were ready to be disappointed and we absolutely loved the movie. This is a different "new age" story of the now famous character. When I saw some of the reviews I just cannot believe that those people watched the same movie! Either that or I have low standards... which I don't think so.People I'm not saying that this remake was not created because the studios wanted to make some quick bucks! Most probably it was! What I'm saying is that they did care about the material, and they took the time to create a new and exciting vision. I go even that far that the message of the movie is different slightly from the original, and that is absolutely fine! The acting is amazing, it was great to see Michael Keaton on the big screen again, he is a very underrated and extremely talented actor in my opinion. Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, and I gotta say Joel Kinnaman was an awesome and very emotional Alex Murphy! The new RoboCop designs were something scared me off a bit at first too when I saw the first on set shots, but do they look awesome in the movie! The action was great and the special efx of course are something have to work in a movie this caliber so no surprises there: fantastic job! There is one thing though other reviewers also mentioned is a little bit dissatisfying: there is no real enemy. But then again, this is a different story. This one is more about a guy who's being thrown around in this crazy futuristic world where he tries everything to maintain his humanity, even though they constantly shut him down, or overload his brain with information. He is us! And finally let me say that much: yes the original is a classic, and it is indeed different, but this new one is not only enjoyable but has the promise of starting the franchise over again with a first class cast, emotional story, and great effects so sit back and enjoy the ride! This is by no means resembles the hollow empty, unoriginal, and completely pointless Totall Recall remake! So just give it a brake and let's hope that there is gonna be a second part!
Doesn't quite live up to Verhoeven's classic but it beats the hell out of 'ROBOCOP 3'! (by Hellmant)
'ROBOCOP': Four and a Half Stars Out of Five Remake of the 1987 classic science fiction film directed by Paul Verhoeven which spawned 2 sequels, a TV series, cartoons, comics, toys and other merchandise . This reboot to the franchise was directed by José Padilha who's already directed some popular and violent Brazilian cop movies and written by first time film writer Joshua Zetumer. It stars Joel Kinnaman in the title role and co-stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, Abbie Cornish, Michael K. Williams and Jay Baruchel. It's set in <more>
future Detroit and has the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp turning injured police officer Alex Murphy into a part-man/part-machine weapon of the law once again . The studios are hoping it will revitalize the dormant franchise and lead to many more sequels. While I don't think it's nearly as classic as the original sci-fi masterpiece it's still a pretty good updated reboot.The movie begins in 2028 when OmniCorp is revolutionizing the world by providing the US military with super-efficient robot soldiers. They're used overseas but a law passed by Congress , called the Dreyfus Act which is backed by a wide majority of the public prevents these mechanical weapons from being used on US soil. There's nothing the CEO of OminCorp, Raymond Sellars Keaton , would like more than to expand his business into law enforcement. So he comes up with a plan of making a half-man/half-robot police officer that will bypass the law and win over public opinion on the idea of mechanical police officers . Sellars convinces his top scientist, Dr. Dennett Norton Oldman , to go to work on the idea. They find the perfect specimen for their science project in Officer Alex Murphy Kinnaman when he's nearly blown to pieces by crooked cops, working for crime lord Antoine Vallon Patrick Garrow . The project becomes much more difficult than Sellars or Norton expected when Murphy refuses to give up his humanity and become the perfect machine/weapon they want him to be.The film ditches most of the dark humor and dry wit that fans have grown to love about the original movie in exchange for real-life politics or at least something very similar to them . While the body count is extremely high it does tone down the blood and gore like the third film in the series did as well in order to get a more bankable PG-13 rating. Don't let that fool you, it's not a kids' flick; it's definitely an adult film that's hard to watch and is pretty disturbing at times. I do miss the distasteful jokes and graphic violence that made the first movie so unique at the time but I also enjoy seeing the new direction this installment is taking with the series. While part of me just wanted to see the original 'ROBOCOP' again which is one of my all time favorite films another part of me really enjoyed seeing something completely different too and if I want to see the original again I can just watch the original movie . The social commentary and politics are great and a much more detailed and realistic origins story is interesting to see as well. I love the performances of all of the cast in it; especially Keaton and this might be his best performance since 'BEETLEJUICE' . The one exception in the cast is Kinnaman; who's OK in the lead but he's no Peter Weller and a better actor could have possibly turned the movie into a five star film! Padilha is a great director for this material though and Zetumer's script while flawed in minor ways is brilliant. It's a near masterpiece that doesn't quite live up to Verhoeven's classic but it beats the hell out of 'ROBOCOP 3' and I look forward to more chapters in the series!Watch our movie review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v Ny7Y7pgmZpA
There's so much going on with the new Robocop movie I don't even know where to begin! (by loliveira85)
There's so much going on with the new Robocop movie I don't even know where to begin! I am really excited right now the movie was a tremendous success in my perception. To my surprise I really am thoroughly satisfied by what was presented in the film. After watching the trailers for the film I wasn't sure if the remake would become a hit or bomb. In actuality I had major concerns as well as many other people I had heard from, but when it came time to deliver they knocked it out of the park! for more cool reviews and content please visit thefunnynerd.com I had a major bias coming <more>
in to watch the movie Jose Padilha is by far one of my favorite directors and as expected he did a tremendous job. This new remake is so much superior than the previous bloodbaths Robocops that I shouldn't have even mentioned them in this post, but here it went anyway. There's definitely a great deal of action throughout the movie, good battle scenes, a great deal of gunfire, and exceptional computer graphics' work for the machines, and weapons. In its entirety the robots where remarkably well designed. The best aspect of the movie though, is not the action. There are great philosophical questions played with through the whole movie, there are ethical dilemmas that surface, religious, spiritual, and scientific issues being touched upon the whole time; but everything in such a subtle tone that it engages the audience and brings the movie to a whole new level. Padilha is well known for his portrayals of current issues regarding politics, corruption, and money in his movies. This time it wasn't different and you can see his deft hands at work as one is experiencing the film. The characters are well presented and developed which is an incredible accomplishment being that it's a standalone movie that 's not leading up to its next continuous installment. One is able to engage the characters, empathize with their situation and with more than a smidgen of suspension of reality believe the scientific feats observed in the film. I was able to glimpse the issues through the characters frame of mind and reference. One is able to comprehend the situations brought to surface, and accept the resolution for the conflicts. All while being constantly left to think about a moral, philosophical, or ethical issues.
I really don't understand all the hate this movie gets. Yeah, I get it, it's a reboot of a perfectly good 80s movie that nobody really wanted, but it's a really good one! I expected a mindless Micheal Bayian action movie and what I got was a really smart, interesting and entertaining look at trans-humanism, the freedom of choice, politics and recklessness in corporate leaders.This movie really dives into the question of how a person could live his day to day live with almost all of his body amputated and stuck inside of a machine. So when people complain about the uncomfortable <more>
scenes between Murphy and his wife, I can only imagine they mean what happened after his transformation, and that felt exactly the way it was supposed to!So yes, the original is way more graphic and still holds up to this day as a gruesome action flick, but this one is smart and interesting and really is a good movie in it's own right.And by no means is it as bad as people say it is!
Don't compare with the original. (by martin-graupner)
I love Paul Verhoeven's RoboCop from 1987 which remains iconic and I usually don't like reboots. But watching the new one I never got rid of the feeling, that the remake is worth it. It is a whole new interpretation, that sets the focus on the topics of our time: robots, drones, the human aspect behind the technology, media critics, war propaganda. I felt, the movie has a mission to enlighten people and I liked that. It became even more obvious how much the RoboCop story exists within the topos of Frankenstein which is the story about the human devilment and the lack of respect of <more>
life. That's why Padilha gives Murphy more of a face, a life and feelings.Beside that the pictures, the sound, the music is pretty contemporary. You probably have to make some compromises today to get the millions to get the flick done. It won't become iconic, but it's the right time for the right message in the right movie.
The new RoboCop is a surprisingly good and entertaining sci-fi action thriller that appeals to the human heart by conveying emotions and the humanity side of Murphy, the main character who eventually becomes the titled cyborg law enforcer. The film ultimately wins for not trying to be the original 1987 version . The story of Murphy is similar since it's a remake but does its own thing to provide something new instead of retelling the same thing again. The film focuses more on the development of Murphy's character, his initial response to his cyborg body and relationship with his <more>
family, making the character more emotional and relatable to the audience. The film delves into the meaning of humanity, family themes, media influence on public opinion, corporate greed capitalism , authoritarianism and corrupt law enforcement authorities. It provides a brief view of the struggles we might face with machines or digital surveillance of the future. It also briefly raises the question whether it's ethical or legal to eliminate the human factor in law enforcement to reduce crime rates by creating merciless cyborgs or robots to replace humans. The action sequences are updated with a higher body count, with better CGI and sound effects, making them cooler, stylish and more entertaining than the original. The new black tactical design of Robocop is found to be acceptable and nice...the updated Robocop is more agile, flexible and stronger compared to the original. However, I personally find the right human hand to be slightly distracting. I prefer no human hand at all, entirely machine except the face There's quite a lot of credible actors in this film: Abbie Cornish, Jay Baruchel, James Earle Haley, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton and Samuel L. Jackson all providing decent performances to this remake. Although it's hardly a ground-breaking film or a masterpiece, Robocop is a decent and satisfying remake that delivers on many levels. There's currently no plot problems, inconsistencies or plot holes found in this film at this time of writing this review. So, it's good enough for a recommendation to watch it. Rating: 7.5/10
