Robocop 2014 review


Detroit has been an ever rotting hellhole since before I was born.  Drug dealers out the wazoo, rape, murder, arson you name it.
The city needs a hero and they will get one in the form of Robocop.

Now before this movie was released a lot of people were skeptical about the PG-13 rating and rightfully so.

The beginning of the film has a very interesting premise. A lot of bad stuff is going on in the middle east and Omnicorp the evil organization in charge of manufacturing robots for defensive purposes is showcasing their Metal Gear Solid Geko robots to the public in the interest of keeping peace in the middle east. Seriously I thought that the first 10 minutes of this movie was deleted footage from metal Gear Solid 4.  Anyway the whole setup is just a cheap way to shove as much information in your face as possible.  Not a bad setup, just a predictable one.  When a kid’s father goes outside and suicide bombs himself for some reason the kid goes outside and is mercilessly shot dead, which in turn leads to a heated debate about morality with machines.

This was a good way to preach morality, but after the first ten minutes the whole incident is never brought up again even once.  It seems like the writers wanted to go for a deep and compelling side story about a suffering Middle Eastern family but just forgot about it half ways through.

We then are introduced to Alex Murphy the protagonist of the film who’s body gets disfigured in a car bomb explosion, and has to live the rest of his life as a machine.

The film is decent, but I thought that it was a bit too fast paced.  When Robocop is first introduced to the public he immediately shoots at a convicted felon in the crowd full of people who are waiting to see him.  Why would a murderer be standing in a crowd outside a police station during the announcement of a new crime fighting gadget? Instead of taking the time to appreciate Robocop for the things that he will do throughout the film, the movie pulls a deus ex Machina and puts him in a situation where everyone will love him after they see him arrest one criminal.  There’s no time to see the reaction of how people take it in, we are just told when people like him, and why.  It’s not enough to simply say ‘that the people in the movie love Robocop we should be able to see them comment on and judge his actions by themselves.

One positive is that this film ditched Alex’s annoying female partner from the 1980’s movies who never waits for backup, with a token black guy cop who never waits for backup. Hey at least he doesn’t bitch at everything.

There were some minor consistency errors such as where Robocop’s left arm is trapped underneath a giant machine that collapsed on him so he picks up a standered UZI and shoots his arms off in a desperation attempt to free himself.  Even though we have been told repeatedly that only .50 caliber bullets are capable of piercing his armor, just like in the original film.

 Robocop is a decent film but I doubt that it will win any movie of the year awards, if you’re in the mood for an action movie then though than this will suffice.

Overall score 6/10
