Seize the day or die regretting the time you lost
COGITO ERGO SUM? (“I think, therefore I am”?) RoboCop, dir. José Padilha

When I heard about reboot of RoboCopI started to wonder what filmmakers would do to the cop story of my childhood. I was curious and worried…

Time came, film appeared in cinemas and it was so different of what I expected. Good different. Movies I remembered where all about action. This new movie is concentrated on ethical issues of the controversial decision, aftermath of the process, etc.

Of course there is some proper action with explosions and chasing villains but for me it seems as it is secondary. And frankly I an glad that it’s not another ‘bang,bang kaboom’ movie, because we get this type a lot lately, so no need to have another one.

It was nice tribute when RoboCop’s suit at some point looked just like the one of the cyborg from 90s. Actors’ play - really good, but what else expect from Gary Oldman or Michael Keaton (for some reason his billionaire character and his access to technological novelties reminded me of him playing Bruce Wayne/Batman, but in here he couldn’t be further from damaged and rightful vigilante). Abbie Cornish was great as definant wife and Joel Kinnaman’s RoboCop is convincing, different from ‘original’ and that’s only a plus.

Story has changed a little bit, RoboCop’s knowledge about what happened as well, but the idea stayed the same - half-man, half-machine fighting the crime in corrupted city, fighting for survival and soul.

Cool tricks, interesting ideas and balanced action with drama, reflection.

Plot:

Officer Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is critically injured, chances of his survival are lower than low. His condition becomes very handy for corporation OmniCorp and its boss Raymond Sellars (M. Keaton) who wants to create cyborg, half-man, half-machine police officer to protect people. But that’s not his only agenda… And combining human thinking, feeling and sensing with machine turns out to be more difficult than expected.
