Robocop is a thrilling and highly entertaining sci-fi film that still holds up pretty well today. The special effects are very good in this film except for a few choppy AD-209 shots and when Dick Jones falls out of the skyscraper, the models arms are longer than the body. Also the animal noises that the AD-209 makes feel tacky but do add comedic relief to the film. The film has really well thought out characters heroes and villains alike. It has a excellent protagonist in Murphy along with a strong female protagonist in Lewis. It also has excellent antagonists such as Boddicker and Dick Jones. The characters are also very well devoted. The film also does a good job by showing action that will not disappoint and it also mixes in some dark comedy and satire. The film can also get emotional and make audiences empathize with the main character and it also has a very satisfying payoff and ending won't disappoint audiences. The film also has some very quotable moments that will stick with audiences. The movie is faced paced and moves along quickly but this is a good thing because scenes don't seem to drag on, the entire film is just fun to watch and you won't want to miss a moment of its brutal action.
A good classic sci-fi film that feels more dated than some of Carpenters other work. Escape From New York is a good movie, but it is not the best sci-fi movie out there. It will keep viewers entertained and it is worth your money but, some scenes feel a little dated and, at times, cheesy. It has memorable characters but they aren't very developed so when some of them die it doesn't really leave a lasting impact of the audience. It is an interesting concept and it is well directed and thought out, but falls a little flat in some categories. Basically, it is a good film, but it doesn't hold up very well.
The Thing is a well crafted and remarkable take of the '50's classic sci-fi film. The practical effects in this film are absolutely stunning and still hold up today. The movies plot is great and its characters are even better. They are well write, preformed, and are very memorable. This movie will really engage the viewer with everything about it. It will tamper with the viewers emotions and will even make them paranoid. No scenes from this film feel useless and stupid but they all feel just right where they are. The film also has one of the most, if not the most intense scene of all time (this is the blood test scene of course) and it will leave audiences in a sweat. Overall, a wonderfully made and memorable sci-fi horror film that will still leave the viewers feeling sick and paranoid, well done Carpenter.
Dredd is a thrilling sci-fi film that will definitely not disappoint fans or audiences. The film is better than the 1995 original in every way possible (aside from being cheesy and overall goofy). All the actors in this film do a good job and the dialog and plot is well write and thought out. The visuals and special effects are stunning and the film is intense in some parts which will suck the viewer into the film. In this reboot, Judge Dredd feels like Judge Dredd, he stays in uniform (a shout out to Karl Urban for keeping the helmet on the whole time) and is a violent and stubborn character who is the same in the comics. Overall, an overlooked and under-appreciated film that is fun to watch and follows the source material.
Beware, Judge Dredd is and underwhelming and un-loyal comic book adaptation. The overall tone of the film is to goofy whereas the comic it is based off of is much darker and serious. The dialog is pretty bad and the acting is rubbish although the special effects don't look as bad as I expected them to. One thing I personally hated was how Dredd removes his helmet about 12 minutes in. In the comics, Dredd is never seen without his helmet, it shows how he is loyal to the law and has practically no emotion. Overall, goofy and action packed film is just another brick in the wall of bad action flics.
