Decent sci-fi flick despite the lack of explicit R-rated gore. Joel Kinnaman is a better Robocop than Murphy. The remake does a fine job getting across Murphy's struggle having the man overcome the machine. However, I prefer Verhoeven's original and I don't think this will make "boffo" box office.

My full review.

Just got back from seeing it. I forgot how much I love Michael Keaton.

Overall I enjoyed it. It wasn't as all out violent as I was expecting, and maybe that was by design.

The Samuel L Jackson part was pretty spot on in it's satire of Fox News talking heads, especially when he lost his shit at the end of the movie.

I can't help but think this movie would've been much more interesting if Kinnaman and Michael K. Williams had switched roles.
