“Robocop” (2014)


FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE REVIEW: Sorry that it has taken me so long to upload this, but I have been without WiFi at my house for almost a week now. I’m finally uploading this though from a different area. Anyway, the movie I saw Friday night is called “Robocop” which stars Joel Kinnaman (The Killing, Safe House), Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Michael Keaton (Batman, Beetlejuice), Abbie Cornish (Limitless, Somersault), Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, A Nightmare on Elm Street), Michael K. Williams (12 Years a Slave, Snitch), Jennifer Ehle (Zero Dark Thirty, The Ides of March), Jay Baruchel (How to Train Your Dragon, Tropic Thunder), John Paul Ruttan (This Means War, Defendor), and Samuel L. Jackson (Unbreakable, Captain America: The Winter Soldier). This movie is a reboot of the 1987 movie of the same name. The movie is set in 2028 where there are robots being used to fight crime instead of human cops in other countries except America. There are people in America that want to have robots as cops, like OmniCorp, and there are people who don’t because robots can’t feel. OmniCorp keeps losing the battle so they try to go a different approach: to put a human with robot parts. They can’t find any good candidates for the job, but when a cop named Alex Murphy (Kinnaman) gets critically injured after him car explodes on him from being rigged, they suit him up to make an example to people that having robots as cops can be a good idea. I thought that the movie wasn’t all that great. The action scenes, the special effects, and some of the acting was good, but the rest didn’t make the cut for me. The plot felt dull, when trying to make it a serious thriller, I was actually laughing and joking around with it. Some of the acting was also bad especially the main actor Joel Kinnaman because I didn’t feel any emotion with his acting. With those cons in mind, this movie doesn’t have what it takes to be juicy-worthy. FINAL SCORE: 66%= Burnt Popcorn
