In RoboCop, the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years - and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. 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 in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.  


Watched Robocop with Jiewei recently. The story started off slightly draggy in the beginning. However, as the story continue, it kept viewers attention on showcasing the process of a human becoming a Robocop due to unforeseen circumstances. 

A slight twist towards the end which was nicely done. Felt that the concept was pretty refreshing. Nice that it injected some humor and kinship which make this film a good one.
