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 - 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.  [Source: Golden Village]

A hero icon that has been around since I was young. With the 2014 remake, there is more CGI effects, more explosive scenes, which will generally appease the current movie crowd expectations. The movie is pretty average in my opinion, typical Hollywood hero actions flick. It would be a movie to catch to kill some time for the Chinese New Year period.
Rate: 6/10
