Subscribe to WWMJ Ellsworth Maine on
Flick Chick here once again in the pursuit of truth, justice and keeping you from spending your hard earned money on movies that suck! Over the weekend I did set my head for reboot and headed off to the Bangor Mall Cinemas to see the new ‘RoboCop’.
This movie runs just under two hours and is considered an action, crime, scifi and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action including frenetic gun violence, brief strong language, sensuality and some drug material This film stars and stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish and Samuel L Jackson.
The year is 2028 in the city of Detroit, around the world soldiers are being replaced by OmniCorp robotic soldiers and battle droids. In the US however, the corporation is being blocked by legislation. US citizens do not want to give the license to kill to machines on domestic soil. Enter the concept of putting a man in the machine which comes into reality after a bomb all but kills Officer Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop. Now the question unfolds how much can the human brain be programmed and is public safety OmniCorps first priority
I was very unsure of the need to reboot RoboCop. I had genuinely liked the original version. To my delight the new age of special effects and a more in depth story line made this movie truly stand on it’s own and not a pumped up copy. During the set up of the more fleshed out characters the film plods just a bit but once it has its robotic legs there is nonstop action and they do an excellent job of attaching you to the main characters. On a Scifi scale of 1-10 I am giving the new ‘RoboCop’ an 8.
