Let’s be honest. We all knew it was inevitable, but deep down we all longed for the ultra-violence of the original. But, times have changed and it’s all about getting as many butts in seats as possible. Oh, RoboCop, what have they done to you?
The film has officially received a PG-13 rating for “intense sequences of action including frenetic gun violence throughout, brief strong language, sensuality and some drug material.” However, just because a film is rated PG-13 it shouldn’t be written off just yet, as perhaps it may still deliver.
Synopsis: In “RoboCop,” the year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology.
