    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Brazilian director José Padilha (Elite Squad, Bus 174) soldiers on stolidly, but lacks the Dutch Verheoeven's abiding sense of mischief. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    RoboCop is no canned remake of the 1987 action film. It's a reimagining that responds to everything that has changed in American life over the past 27 years, addressing new threats and exploiting new anxieties. show more

    Moviegoers are stuck with this sci-fi thriller's bland story, murky cinematography and frenetic special effects. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The result is fitfully interesting, and Mr. Kinnaman, best known for "The Killing" on television, compels our empathy with a kind of macho melancholia. Still, the whole thing comes down to an action adventure that's graphics-rich, logic-poor, coherence-challenged and pleasure-impaired. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    RoboCop is a solid near-future action pic that poses moral questions about artificial intelligence and remote-control combat systems without getting too preachy or ponderous about it. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    The remake of the 1987 cult actioner Robocop is a misguided failure — not only because its retooled half-man/half-machine hero now has emotions, but also because its “fear the machines” message winds up feeling creaky. show more

    Leslie Felperin The Hollywood Reporter

    In some ways, the thoughtful, dense script marks an improvement on the original, and the cast is certainly tonier this time around. What’s missing is the original’s evil wit, amoral misanthropy and subversive slipperiness. show more

    Ian Buckwalter NPR

    It's well made, polished, and hits every mark — but is it crazy to want a futuristic sci-fi action flick about a motorcycle-riding metal supercop to be just a little more fun? show more

    RoboCop has sound and fury to spare and even an inspired idea or two lurking beneath that polished exterior, but much like its upgraded namesake, this watchable mess ultimately lacks a prime directive to call its own. show more

    Much better than anticipated. The plot makes more sense than the original and the acting is overall better.

    This movie was good...not fabulous....just good. I must say that after reading the remarks some of the critics made, I think their full of it/ the movie wasn't the absolute worst I ever saw - it just wasn't totally original. I do see an honest effort in some parts to bring a newness to the movie.

    The first movie was so much better ! This, like many remakes are thoughtless and just a refurbishing of old material. When will Movie makers come up with something original like Avatar ? another Robot movie, Another cop movie, another bleeding heart movie,,, O R I G I N A L !
