‘RoboCop’ Now Opens Close to Valentine’s Day


Columbia Pictures and MGM’s new RoboCop is now opening February 12, 2014, a few days later than originally planned. Apparently, it’s the perfect Valentine’s Day movie?

In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilises their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

Director Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. Peter Weller played the character in the original and the 1990 sequel.

    This movie looks kinda cool to me but it also appears that the film makers have totally overlooked the spirit of the original film. What was a silly, fun and cheesy 80’s film has become a scifi action film. The same thing happened with Total Recall. It wasn’t bad but it was too slick and modern. It lacked the feeling of the original.

    I don’t think I could be less interested in this if I tried.
