Robocop (2014) – review

WEBdl – italian audio track

Long story short: a mega corporation needs an human to be implanted into a robot, to change the law in its favour.

I’m a big fan of the original Verhoeven’s RoboCop, so I was quite skeptikal when I decided to watch this version… and I must admit I was well pleased!

The story is similar to the original one, but it’s different enough to be a good story; SFX are, obviously, gorgeous and really superior in comparison the the weak ones used in the 1987’s version – sorry, even if I love the original RoboCop, the SFX were quite poor, in particual the stop-motion…

Music is good, locations too; acting is awesome, but this is obvious, taking in account the actors present in the movie… Michael Keaton is a really convincing bad CEO, while Gary Oldman is the good scientist, and Samuel L. Jackson is the perfect son of a… anchorman!

A very fast action and technologically packed film, reccomended to all sci-fi aficionados who love robots (ED-208/9) and cyborgs (RoboCop).

My vote: 7/10
