This 2014 remake of Robocop approaches the story from an interesting angle. We get to have a glimpse of the law-making process in the US and how mega corps manipulates their way into passing bills that benefits their bottom line – exploiting the media, using manipulative language (robophobic, ha!), bribes, clever marketing to swing public opinions and outright lies. This is the real drama. The other parts are pretty standard sci-fi – nothing groundbreaking. The casting didn’t really work for me here.

Overall rating: 3/5 stars
