Story


In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years - and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) - a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit - is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..more meticulous script and, naturally, flashier effects, but it lacks the original's wit and subversive slipperiness..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]
“..taking the original and successfully transplanting it into an ambitious new world, Jose Padilha's english-language debut is an exciting, pacey and thoughtful sci-fi actioner..”
by Richard Jordan [Total Film]
“..is a movie with a lot on its mind..”
by Soren Andersen [NY Times]
