Robocop Synopsis

In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years, but have been forbidden for law enforcement in America. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine.

RoboCop has a lot going for it. The PG-13 remake of a 1987 hard R classic is a visually appealing narrative with plenty of glossy action sequences. It ranks up there with Gravity and Avatar as far as its VFX goes. Add in a few nice acting performances and a fine enough script and RoboCop becomes a decently entertaining movie. The only angle that it is really missing is fun.

Did You Know Robocop Has An Almost Perfectly Symmetrical Plot? Did You Know Robocop Has An Almost Perfectly Symmetrical Plot?
A film blogger recently brought to everyone’s attention that the original Robocop film is a near perfect example of a symmetrical story. Known as a chiasmus, the story can use the same events twice, while employing diametric opposition to keep the story moving. In other words, Robocop is the ultimate story of payback in equal measure, thanks to everyone’s favorite “bad mothercrusher.”

The new remake from Brazilian director José Padilha is rated PG-13, cutting down on the extremely graphic content that was so crucial to the first film.

As February inches closer, we continue to get new looks at Robocop, including the above international TV spot, which emphasizes control. Is Alex Murphy's free will just an illusion? It sounds like OmniCorp has it set up that way, but then we hear the words, "He's undoing what we did to him," which suggests that control is shifting.

How do you put RoboCop through a field test? Drop him in a warehouse, tell him not to get shot in the face and then start firing, not necessarily in that order. This, according to the new clip from the upcoming Robocop remake. That description is probably a bit too vague to be accurate, technically.
