Careful how you ride that bike or you'll hit a plot hole

A nice time killing actioner that does what it says on the box.

Robot Cop blows sh*t up.

Which is fine, the plot doesn't always make sense but the film looks pretty and that's what they seemed to be going for. Unfortunately the original Robocop was a ham fisted metaphor for the growing gap between rich & poor, and how that was enforced by the political system. Then lovely wrapped in ultra-violence. All that subtext is completely missing from this film, in fact all subtext is missing from this film and the violence is far from ultra.
This sanitised version is fine for the family and for switching off and letting the programming take control.
