Trouble updated “Robocop” is not that it is radically different from its parent (not the best). And is not that the creators wanted to reach a wider audience and made from all sides “right blockbuster” child age rating (12 years) and a hero a la Iron Man. Film spoiled unnecessary storylines, inadequate secondary characters, mediocre action scenes filmed and ROBOCOP-whiner.
In the near future, the corporation “Omnikorp” introducing robots in the field of law enforcement.Americans have democracy in troubled regions of the world, but now this is happening without the participation of the people. Iron soldiers kill terrorists. However, progress in the U.S. impede policy prohibiting use of robots on the streets to fight criminals as tin, you see, “I feel nothing.” Head “Omnikorp” invents a brilliant plan – to make a cyborg with a human mind. In a guinea pig is selected from Detroit cop Alex Murphy.
Devastation in Detroit is not observed, the high level of crime also a word. The authors emphasize the film robofobiyu.
Robocop is in no hurry to appear on stage. The first half hour resemble traditional cop thriller with the bases and corrupt cops. With all this cool cop understands and diligent family man Alex Murphy.
Then the picture gradually transformed into a family drama. Alex’s wife crying over the mutilated body of her husband. Already converted to Robocop Murphy crying over his share. Son Alex falls into depression because of the new image of the pope. Everything is constantly are worried about the future of the new servant of the law, crack a tear and unsuccessfully trying to make the audience cry.
Against this backdrop, unwind the line set of supporting characters. Here shows the relationship between the corporation and the inhabitants of the “White House”, the debate about the ethics of using robots in the U.S. police, throwing mental scientist who created Robocop. Murphy acquires a personal enemy, it will hear and problems in the family and at work. All require attention. In this swamp itself Robocop, valiant servant of the law, goes by the wayside. Him in the crime film paid little attention.
By the end of the film the characters lose the remnants of adequacy. Their actions are illogical, and motives – is unclear. Several moments authors inserted into the narrative, without thinking about the integrity of the film. As a result, construction collapses under the weight of mini-scenes and whiners heroes. Not even makes a great game Gary Oldman.
Generally in the “Robocop” is only two characters that do not cause irritation. This odious news anchor played by Samuel L. Jackson, lighting in each edition of his program, as well as not carrying on the spirit of a fighter RoboCop Corporation (played by Jackie “Rorschach” Haley). At least these two have distinct beliefs and not prone to sentimentality.
In the action scenes lack of blood is less of the drawbacks. Some battles are reminiscent shootout cans, others appear in the form of first-person shooter for a light gun – bright backlit goals and huge scope, running around the screen. Final massacre perceived bad because too jumpy Robocop and emotional stress sloppy fight from the original film by Paul Verhoeven.
Reborn “Robocop” is not like the cheap stuff, and this is his problem. The authors have charged too much and tried to make his robot policeman. Actor got too much time. Instead, the cruel world of the future economic disruption, widespread crime and corporate power, we show boring “almost real”, and the characters instead of solving problems prefer to cry over them. Robocop here too little and too much family drama. Trying to keep all the lines in the final loss of reason together turns the characters, and with it lost any sympathy for them. Better reconsider the original and do not waste time on this “remake”.
