Robocop Blu-ray + DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Jun 11, 2014
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Kidzworld reviews the Blu-ray + DVD Combo pack ROBCOP, featuring good cop Alex Murphy who is half man and half robot!

In ROBOCOP, the year is 2028 and OmniCorp – the world’s leader in robot technology – sees a golden opportunity to reap billions for their company.  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, OmniCorp grabs their chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officerOmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and will stop at nothing – no matter the cost to Alex – to make sure the program succeeds.  But OmniCorp never counted on one thing: there is still a man fighting inside the machine.

The Bottom Line

When ROBOCOP first arrived on the scene in the 80's, no one knew just how realistic it would be, twenty years later we've reached a level of advancement with technology that the premise of a cyborg law enforcement agent isn't so crazy after all (we're still a long way from any of this being a reality though). A lot of older viewers who were around for the first ROBOCOP felt that making a new one just wan't necessary - the original was pretty visually stunning after all - but one upside is that the new ROBOCOP is less gory and comes with a PG 13 rating. Even though it has a lower age rating, director Jose Padilha was clearly a fan of the original and tried to update in the best ways possible, swapping up some of the political business ideas for something a little more modern, and it really works. He also adds a lot more backstory and human interest to the Murphy family and what they're going through -  if you're dad's a cyborg cop, it's gotta have some effect on you right?

ROBOCOP on Blu-ray is the best way to take advantage of a film that has some incredible high-tech special effects, and the special features help you go behind the scenes to see how they created the incredible story and visuals, if you're really into the movie, then the "OmniCorp Product Announcement" will be the one to watch first. A great movie for watching at home in high-definition with a bowl of popcorn.
