Review of "ROBOCOP"

REVIEW: "ROBOCOP" by Jayne Waterford

Bit of a paycheck for Gary Oldman (Dr. Dennett Norton). José Padilha's "ROBOCOP" (2014) plays like a cold, gay guy in a climate where he has to be married to a woman.

Oldman was awesome btw. A present presence.

What most detracted from the success of this film was the performance of Joel Kinnaman in the roles of Alex Murphy & RoboCop. He seemed to be redefining a new level of zero chemistry between two actors in romantically involved roles on screen. It was like he's was only turning up while the camera was rolling there was so little engagement with his, "wife." Perhaps that's what he was exploring, a policeman who's personality was robotic. It was a catastrophic decision.

1/10 Yep. ONE.

Official Blurb "In "ROBOCOP", the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years - and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. 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 for 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 pursuing justice." - Sony Pictures PR
