the story took place in a futuristic world, where OmniCorp was the most popular organization that focused on robot technology. Alex was a perfect husband and officer. however, he was critically injured in the line of duty. OmniCorp took this as the greatest opportunity to create a part-man, part-robot police officer. with all the surveillance footage and criminal information uploaded into RoboCop's memory, he was able to detect any ongoing criminal activities or capture wanted fugitives in record timing. however, when the robotic side started to take over the human side of Alex, things became dangerously threatening for himself as well as the city.
the film felt like an introduction to the RoboCop character. despite the advance technologies, we found ourselves unimpressed by the typical flow of the storyline. it took us quite a while to understand the connection between the Dr and the OmniCorp spokesperson. there were so much dialogues before the film got started with Alex. then it became over-exaggerated with how perfect he was robot-wise. the human side rarely did come out no matter how much they told us that it was in motion. with minimal facial expression, he just wasn't believing enough to convince us nor made us love him. the story became such a drag that we were just glad when it finally ended.
