Really liked it

The only drawback is that the storyline seemed to have been condensed. The movie felt brief. Also I do like Mrs. Murphy's participation in the movie.

While the original is a definitely a 'movie for guys who like movies' movie, so don't get me wrong - I love the original, I took my 15 year old daughter and we both loved it. Good story line, they got into the characters, and lots of action with evil villains. I wish I would have saw it on the IMAX.

It's not your 90's Robocop.

The original movie had cheesy humor, lots of action, and was full of cliches (I'd buy that for $1) and gore (the infamous, melting man gets smashed by car). This was more of a human take on the tale. The special effects gave us lots of action, but also gave us a man even further stripped of his humanity. The violence was more precise, and plot driven. The imagery was dark, cold, clinical. I love how this version as well as the 90's version dealt with corruption and bias in the media, in the corporate world, and in society in general (but in this version all that was toned down, and treated somewhat clinically). The casting was great. Keaton made a perfect CEO of cyborg security guards. Gary Oldman's character was great too, but I wish they'd gone even more Hamlet with that, your know, to be or not to be--he inward struggle to do what is right. Mrs. Robocop was gorgeous and faithful, and if my last memory as a human was his, I'd want the plug pulled too.

like total recall, a hollow reboot

Not as bad as I had expected it to be. HUGE fan of the original, this did not compare. How could it with a pg13 rating. It has to be taken as a reboot or re-imagining, whatever you want to call it. Either way it actually was better than Robo2, and the horrendous Robo3.

robocop is still bad ass

For a remake of the original, I don't think it strayed too far off from the original story. Of course some creative tweaks were made for the movie but overall I enjoyed watching this. Robocop still has his half human half machine larger than life presence on screen. I wasn't dissapointed.
