RoboCop is trying to walk a thin line, and if it spent more time exploring its thematic potential instead of defaulting to a live-action video game, we might have had something very special.
November 14, 2017
This Robocop manages to resurrect the franchise and establish a strong build-up for sequels to follow.

October 30, 2017
With Joel Kinnaman under-powered as Detroit-cop-turned-cyborg Alex Murphy, the result -- despite a supporting cast led by Gary Oldman -- is a violent, badly-written and notably unfunny mess.

Not funny enough and video-game violent, Robocop is more like a fanfic than a movie.
July 14, 2016
The new Robocop is a generic shoot-em-up for much of the film, one no different than any other.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 21, 2016
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.

April 21, 2014
This 'RoboCop' spends more time developing the man behind the machine, making him more complex and less detached (at least, at first).

March 21, 2014
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.
March 17, 2014
A typically inferior remake...

Nothing special, but manages to avoid the junk heap
March 6, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
February 28, 2014
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.
February 25, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
