RoboCop

SHOTGUN MODE REVIEW
(trying to catch my blog up)



THE PITCH





WORTH
$$$$1/2


THE VIEWING

     This remake was done extremely well considering no "R" rating.   Nice compliment to the iconic original even though this version won't come close to Paul Verhoeven's 1987 masterpiece strictly due to the age of cinema we now live in.  
         I think it's safe to say that we are desensitized to extreme violence on screen because this is the era of information.  Almost everything is explained by Googling or simply watching the bonus features on your bluray copy of your favorite movie. We didn't have any of those things in the 80's so when Robocop appeared on-screen I was awed.  Being only 12yrs old with a very impressionable mind, I thought Robocop was the greatest thing next to the Ghostbusters.  I can't help but wonder what the younger generation feels about this version since seemingly every summer blockbuster is visually stunning.  

Worth watching.
