The new Robocop is a generic shoot-em-up for much of the film, one no different than any other.

this RoboCop gives a mostly sensible Friday night action outing, laced with modest character development and provoking a little thought here or there.

What is Robocop? He's a quadriplegic Ironman without the rocket-booster. And both Robocop and Ironman are basically Terminators. Robocop 2.0 has better armor, but less fun.

Despite straying from the satiric bent of the original, this edition has plenty to say - and plenty of ways to thrill its audience.

Most older viewers will probably feel that RoboCop cannot match Verhoeven's satirical originality, but the computer age has made the core ethos more relevant to contemporary society.

It's not a problem that they went and remade Robocop. But the biggest problem with this Robocop is that it's a remake.

"Robocop" is a remake that manages to find its own way. It may lack the social satire of the 1987 original, but it's sharper and more believable than the film that went before.

Without the essential emotional attachment to Murphy, the entire project was in vain from the start, turning this into just another big, loud action flick with nothing at its core.

An impressive supporting cast does the best it can with small and somewhat undefined stereotypes.

This 'RoboCop' spends more time developing the man behind the machine, making him more complex and less detached (at least, at first).

This version feels more slick and calculated than gritty and provocative, and it lacks the freshness of its predecessor despite attempts to update various story elements.

Nothing special, but manages to avoid the junk heap

Having set up RoboCop as a drone whose humanity has been ruthlessly programmed out, the filmmakers can't figure out how to give him back meaningful agency.

This remake of the science fiction classic is definitely on the right track with its approach to social commentary, but doesn't stick the landing enough for it to work.

blandly inoffensive.... It's like they took the original and sanded off all the sharp corners and rough edges to make something slicker, but also undeniably rote.

Padilha protracts Murphy's existential ordeal,so that the revenge plot that motivates the action becomes secondary to Murphy's struggle to hold onto his identity even as political, corporate and scientific interests seek to erase it.

Caso você queira assistir ao mesmo filme, o melhor caminho é revisitar o trabalho de Paul Verhoeven, já que esta criação de José Padilha é algo bastante diferente. Mas não menos admirável.

It won't tick off the original Robocop loyalists, and might even impress a few of them.

The satire's still there, albeit not as angry and more obvious, and the targets have shifted. It may not have the original's subversive nutso attitude but there's a couple of crazy surprises up its sleeve and a surprisingly engaging story.
