Well, Ummm, I have to say that the producers are playing on our previous knowledge of this movie in the early nineties; it was a successful movie at that time for its new concept. 2014 holds a lot for this new Robocop movie with its new cool black armor and motorcycle, where the storyline isn’t far from the old one, but this time they focused more on the human emotions for the new Robocop, although I think they didn’t get it right 100%.
I have to say that I’m not a PS3 or Xbox fan nor I ever did play “Call of Duty” or “Black OPS”, but the movie seems to be more intended to the younger generation who’re familiar with these types of video games. There are lots of parts of the movie where you think you’re playing a video game more than watching a movie.
All and all, it’s not a bad movie to see if you have nothing to do on the weekends, you may also take your whole family with you to enjoy the movie.

I rate 7/10
Three reasons why I’m not happy about the movie:
1- The storyline goes numb after we see him as Robocop.
2- Bad acting from the main character.
3- The sub-characters are just there to tell us what’s happening, nothing more.
