Consensus: While it's far better than it could have been, José Padilha's RoboCop remake fails to offer a significant improvement over the original.

Surveying the peculiar array of 1980s retreads clustered into release this week, I'm reminded of Marty McFly in Back to the Future Part II, traveling forward in time 30 years to discover that everything is still the same, only worse.

Cynical, boring, PG-13 retread.

RoboCop is trying to walk a thin line, and if it spent more time exploring its thematic potential instead of defaulting to a live-action video game, we might have had something very special.

Padilha is Brazilian, and it's interesting that both RoboCops have been made by men whose non-Hollywood work focused on their respective countries' curdled politics.

Neither Alex Murphy's internal moral conflict nor the larger, vaguely satiric portrait of a global culture dependent on high-tech law enforcement seem to be the main point of this Robocop remake, which raises the question of what is meant to be the point.

This Robocop manages to resurrect the franchise and establish a strong build-up for sequels to follow.

Rolling Stone

This Robo-reboot tries fiercely to update the satirical punch and stylistic perversity Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original. It's a futile gesture.

It's well made, polished, and hits every mark - but is it crazy to want a futuristic sci-fi action flick about a motorcycle-riding metal supercop to be just a little more fun?

The Mail on Sunday (UK)

With Joel Kinnaman under-powered as Detroit-cop-turned-cyborg Alex Murphy, the result -- despite a supporting cast led by Gary Oldman -- is a violent, badly-written and notably unfunny mess.

The question of the necessity of a reboot aside, this isn't a bad attempt. The cast is great, the pace really fast and the effects pretty decent. The… More

Not a patch on the original..the film is saved by some good sfx in the early scenes & great performances from Michael Keaton and especially Gary Oldman.

In the olden days nobody gave too much of a hoot for sci-fi and so you had cheesy movies with 3 or 4 no-name actors carrying the whole thing, reciting the whole… More

It's not a train wreck, that's for sure. But for every great scene of emotional, moral tension brought by Oldman and Kinnaman it takes several steps… More
