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.

This Week In Home Entertainment: Robocop, Lone Survivor And More This Week In Home Entertainment: Robocop, Lone Survivor And More

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.

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.
