Although well-CGi’d & upgraded in modern costume from laughable to near-cool, this Robocop update tries too hard in its edginess and comes across more as tasteless in its tried (often-perverse) reinvention of the classic original. 4/10.
Plot Synopsis: In 2028, OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. While its drones have long been used by the military overseas, their use is forbidden in American law enforcement. However, OmniCorp gets a golden opportunity to crack that market when Detroit cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is critically injured in the line of duty. By transforming Murphy into a cyborg, OmniCorp executives hope to rake in billions for their shareholders, but they forget one thing: There’s still a man inside the machine.
Overall Score: 4/10
