RoboCop is topically up-to-the-moment but stylistically it’s retro. Far from using the story as an excuse to string together cheap thrills...

Saw the pre-screening

By wcarino03
It's a decent movie. Not bad, not good, but I think it's worth to check out to compare to the original. Basically same premise except Murphy has a male partner whereas the original had a female...

Good effects, fantasy about politicians

By eyeseemovie
It was good to see the transition from person to robocop, though he wasnt that injured to be left with the organs he was left with. You will ask what is the point of Morgan Freeman, annoying and...

Not so great

By tmazzone
I thought it was very juvenile,..My 14 y/o thought it was great. I resent having to wait till 6:45 for the 6:20 movie to start because of the insane amount of trailers,.....

Robo cop

As a regular, female-type movie-goer, I couldn't disagree with all these high-falutin' critics more - when I go to see a movie, I want to be ENTERTAINED, and this movie definitely was entertaining. ...

I really liked the human aspect of the film. Unlike the original Robocop, where Alex Murphy seemed to just wholeheartedly accept his new life as a cyborg, this new person reveals potentially real...

Robo Done better

Better than the Original

Very Good Remake
