When I heard they are rebooting Robocop, it didn’t even register as a blip on my radar, except thinking… Why?Then the trailer came out and it did catch my attention.Now that I got to watch it, I’m back to… why? There’s several problems. The main one is that it could not hold my attention. Listen, we’ve seen the story before. For the most part, they followed the original. This time completely foregoing the tongue in cheek angle. This version completely goes the serious route. Which is not a bad thing, they just didn’t know how to do that very well. Secondly, casting Joel Kinnaman was bad. This guys has no personality and completely for gettable and actually a little unlikeable. Gary Oldman was fine as the scientist, though under-utilized. Michael Keaton was not bad as the underhanded CEO only in it for the money. Samuel Jackson is the only standout that made me pay attention to the screen. And it’s limited his time on the screen.It starts off interesting enough with politics, morality, ethics and such, but quickly gets reduced into a loud, explosive, shoot-em up video game. And that’s ultimately what I walked away thinking… I’m watching someone play a video game.This was IMO, a waste of time, resources and talent.
