Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about RoboCop.
San Francisco Chronicle - 10/10 by Mick LaSalleRoboCop is no canned remake of the 1987 action film. It's a reimagining that responds to everything that has changed in American life over the past 27 years, addressing new threats and exploiting new anxieties.
Sunday Independent (Ireland) - 10/10 by Padraic McKiernanIt's far from memorable but the cast acquit themselves with aplomb while impressive action sequences will give excitable types plenty of bang bang for their buck.
Fort Worth Star-Telegram/DFW.com - 10/10 by Cary DarlingIt's unfortunate, then, that this RoboCop reboot shrugs off the pointed satire too soon, devolving into just another big action vehicle - even if it's a well-made, entertaining one at times.
The Movie Minute - 9/10 by Joanna LangfieldThere is a logic to resurrecting this franchise in the video game era and while this reboot isn't as much inventive fun as its original, this not -bad take does serve its purpose.
One Guy's Opinion - 9/10 by Frank SwietekA competent action movie, but one that could have been, like the 1987 film, something more than that...the set-pieces are impressively choreographed [but] they can't but have a been-there, seen-that feel.
We Got This Covered - 9/10 by Isaac FeldbergRoboCop is a sleek, vastly enjoyable remake that fires on all cylinders, blending a subversive script with strong acting and exhilarating action sequences.
Screen It! - 9/10 by Jim JudyClearly wasn't needed, but it's better than I originally feared it would be. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)
SFX Magazine - 9/10 by Andrew OsmondIt's not a classic like Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original, but it is an excellent, intelligent SF drama... one of the boldest Hollywood reboots we've seen yet.
Seattle Times - 9/10 by Soren AndersenThere are plenty of high-tech gunbattles in this "Robo," which make it a real pulse-pounder. But it's the intelligence behind the gunplay that makes it distinctive.
Boston Herald - 9/10 by James VerniereUnoriginal, of course, and PG-13, but not half bad, thanks to Kinnaman and the rest of the cast.
