Robocop poster.jpg

Not so much a remake, more of a reboot.

While a lot of the more comic aspects of the original movie have been lost, the result is a more grittier and perhaps even better movie. Robocop even takes damage when shot.

It would have been better without the shakey cam, but even that wasn’t too off putting as it only seemed to be used when jumping from one action scene to the next. In other words I was still able to see what was happening.

I like how the hero’s family seems a lot more important in this version, rather than just being written off in the 1987 version.

I also like a few of the other subtle little details, Dr Norton apparently being genre savvy and agreeing to shut down (kill) Robocop, when in fact he intended to help him escape.

What didn’t I like? It’s hard to say. The Novak character making silly noises right at the beginning of the movie was a little off putting, but seriously I think that was the worst thing I have to say about it.

A much better movie than I was expecting.

I’m going to keep this fairly short. I found the movie very entertaining, true there were a few things we could have done without, but they were few in number. The story was well told and the characters did grow on me.

Perhaps they could have gotten an albino to play the albino. While the guy they did get had slightly paler skin than everyone else, he was by no means an albino.

Secondly the idea that the identity of a man who does a lot of business, even under the counter business wouldn’t be known to the CIA, just didn’t ring true.

I’ll admit I didn’t end it where I originally planned, but it felt a better place to end it.
