Movie Review: ‘Robocop’

30 Submitted by on Tue, 11 February 2014, 12:01

Robocop has been rebooted…or perhaps it’s more appropriate to say rebuilt. The Unusual Suspects gather in their industrial hideout like the Boddicker gang, and dig into the finite circuitry of Jose Padilha’s nouveau-Robo.

Their prime directives? To serve the movie-goer trust, protect the innocent (from potentially wasting ticket money), and to uphold their own convictions (warped though they may sometimes be). Could the studio make Robocop better than it was before? Stronger? Faster? More Explosion-er? Dead or alive, Chris, Brian, Ashley, and Beau are coming to a verdict on this.

Listen to this Highly Suspect Review or there will be…trouble. Thank you for your cooperation.
