I’m a big fan of the original Robocop film. It was hyper violent and went way over the top. Sort of the them of the 80s, don’t you think?
This is not that kind of Robocop. The violence is PG-13. There’s very little blood and no more gore than you would see in a documentary about brain surgery.
This isn’t what I would call a thinking man’s movie. It definitely leans heavy on simple action and a step by step plot. However, it does shine a light on many current issues that we face today: ethics of drones, corporate power, and media manipulation. In the movie these issues are simply used like a prop. The story never stops to reflect on the pros and cons of these issues.
The action was good but a little redundant at times.
The movie wasn’t devoid of humor but I think there was room for a good bit more. At least when they tried to do humor they got laughs. Nothing’s worse than trying to be funny and missing the target.
The pacing was quick. There was never a time when I thought, “Yada, yada, yada, lets get to the next action scene.”
All said I’m happy with it and will see it again on DVD. And hopefully there will be more.
