cinema_as_it_is REVIEW: Robocop

This Reboot Of The 1984 Classic Is a Watered Down Remake That Loses All The Purpose of The Original Material. Sure, This Can Be A Somewhat Mindlessly Entertaining Action Flick At Times But The End Result Feels Like Another Modern Hollywood CGI Noise Fest. Joel Kinnaman Plays This Movie's Version Of Alex Murphy and While Kinnaman Is Able Bodied In The Action Scenes, His Acting Is Pretty Weak and We're Just Never There To Root For Him. Abbie Cornish Plays Murphy's Wife (Again, Why Is Her Character Here?) and Her Chemistry With Kinnaman Feels Forced. Gary Oldman Has a Role Here For No Reason At All Because His Character Could've Been Played By Anyone Else. Michael Keaton Plays Our Main Antagonist and He Just Breezes Through His Horribly Written Role (From Businessman To Gun Wielding Maniac For No Reason) Jackie Earle Haley, Jay Baruchel and Aimee Garcia Are Wasted Here In Roles That Require No Real Effort. Michael Kenneth Williams and Samuel L. Jackson Play Completely Different Characters But They Are The Two Elements That Work. The Direction By Jose Padilha Is Average, The Action Is Meaningless and The Screenplay/Story Is A Big, Blockbuster Version Of The Original Without Any Of The Subversive Wit or Meaningful Violence. I Wouldn't Buy This For A Dollar.

A film by Quentin Tarantino, one of my top 5 favourite director. As always, he put together an cast of actor for this one. This was is third film and a follow up to Pulp fiction. In my point of view, he made a great job following up the expectation. I will always love the unique style of Tarantino. A must see movie for everyone who enjoys good film making!

philosophygoddess Thankful for the people in the world who restore our faith in humanity.🌍 There are too few. Thankful for great human performances such as the role played by @michaelkeatondouglas in Birdman, which he should have won the Oscar for Best Actor. His beautiful body of work speaks for itself and I look forward to his future roles. #michaelkeaton #bestactor #Birdman #oscars2015 #humanity #wisdom #love #fan #acting #performance #movies #cinema #art #hollywood #star #best #igdaily #experience #philosophy 2h
