Robocop Movie Review

Its February and this is the first film of the year we've seen, pretty poor going! The 80s Robocop was one of my favourite films, so this had a pretty big robot suit to fill, and it doesn't quite make it. Gone is the cheesy satire, the violence and the silver suit. In comes Samuel L Jackson as a very long winded chat show host, instead of short news burst. The violence is gone as this is PG13 and in its place you get heat vision. And worst of all the silver suit gets turned black, even though silver looks better! However if you can look past all those changes, which is pretty hard, then underneath is a fairly decent film. You still have a human struggling with his humanity after being turned cyborg. You also have the controversy of how human is he and how in control as they fiddle with his hormone levels to make him perform. A better reboot that Total Recall, but still sullies the memory of the original.
