Robocop (Blu-ray)

3 June 2014
  • Summary: The theme for the film is what will make the project a success in my opinion, because it will be a topic that will most likely be discussed well after you leave the theater; I know I was still thinking about it. The reality of it is bound to become a hot topic of debate in years to come as technology advances: is it better to be efficient or to have emotion?

RoboCop Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
30 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Paul Verhoeven's 1987 RoboCop remains an unsurpassable classic, partly because it came first and partly because Verhoeven's cheerfully offensive visuals have a unique panache that no one else could hope to equal. But Padilha's 2014 version offers its own pleasures, if one approaches it with an open mind and doesn't expect it to replicate the Verhoeven experience. If the original is what you want, it's readily available .

RoboCop

Sound & Vision Magazine
7 May 2014
  • Excerpt: The movie was ambitious beyond its budget, but thankfully all involved brought their A-game, from the cast’s inspired performances to Basil Poledouris’ operatic musical score to the innovative use of old-school special effects, to Rob Bottin’s landmark RoboSuit and makeup work. At its core were an audaciously original script and the unique filmmaking voice of Paul Verhoeven, an accomplished Dutch director making his big-screen Hollywood debut.

  • Excerpt: While "RoboCop" is a decent sci-fi action flick, it lacks the dark humor, great villains, and shocking action that made the original a fan favorite.

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop was not a film that needed to be remade. With its countless memorable lines and scenes, over-the-top violence, and awesome, original sci-fi world building, the 1987 movie remains an action classic to this day (even if some of the effects can’t compare to what modern Hollywood can do).

  • Excerpt: Oh man…I’m getting old. I can remember seeing RoboCop in the theaters in 1987 and being aghast at the graphic violence in the film. Granted I’ve become so desensitized to it since, it’s a mere afterthought, but at the time I didn’t know what to think. I didn’t view the film as a “good” or even “great” movie, rather I was entertained and some of the images stayed with me for years. What images?

Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: One thing people rarely concede of nihilism: Its scope is infinitely epic. Compared to its new remake, Paul Verhoeven's big, brass-balled American breakthrough, RoboCop , looks cheaper than ever, a mess of dirty matte shots, Class of Nuke 'Em High splatter, and Silver Era stop-motion miniatures that quite literally look like someone bought for a dollar. But you can't put a price on Verhoeven's pitch-perfect tone.

  • Excerpt: The streets of Detroit have become overrun with crime, to the point where even the police struggle to provide protection. The level of violence is horrifically high, as crimes are getting more brutal and remorseless. A potential solution comes from the Omni Consumer Products Corporation, who seek to privatize the police force. With Omni’s resources, the police would be better equipped to deal with the violence in the streets.
