RoboCop - Movie Synopsis & Plot

In "RoboCop," the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy (Kinnaman) is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex's life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

MOVIE REVIEW

Another 80's classic gets remade and, amazingly, somehow, it's not a disaster. RoboCop reinvents the hybrid character for modern day, shifting the satire from corporate greed to national security (and corporate greed) and granting Alex Murphy more depth and a bigger back story. None of those elements make the movie better than the Paul Verhoeven original, but they help this new RoboCop be more than the empty shell most pundits were expecting.
