Review:

Alright this review is under maintenance. I watched over Christmas while I was wrapping presents so I wasn’t able to give it my full attention. I watched most, but I want to see it again because what I did see was really good. Planning on purchasing it based on what I saw.

Loved the action. I thought the little bits of comedy really set a good tone for the film. It was serious, but not too serious, it was funny, but not too funny. A hard balance to achieve.

I liked the women in the movie too, they were capable and kicked butt.

Until I watch it more I’m not going to go into anymore.

4/5 *subject to change after another viewing

Director:

José Padilha

Starring:

Joel Kinnaman

Gary Oldman

Michael Keaton

Plot:

In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy – a loving husband, father and good cop – is critically injured in the line of duty, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.

Review:

This movie is shit. It’s so slow and somehow boring. How the hell do you make Robocop boring? Watch this movie and find out.

It was an hour into the film before it actually started to pick up pace and even then there were too many emotional scenes with the wife and scenes with people saying he’s undoing what we did. It was just too cliché and I don’t even mind cliché.

The ending was the best part of the movie and it did not make up for the first hour and change.

1/5
