The Robocop Reboot

While I was preparing the badges for Furnace X  tonight, I watched the reboot of Robocop. I enjoyed it, but I think that it lost itself somewhere between trying to be a serious story about the use of robot weaponry, a story of relationship changes forced by Alex Murphy having a near full-body prosthetic fitted, and a crime action thriller. It was really disappointing that the female characters were reduced to ciphers; more could have been made of them. The technology, look and feel was excellent though. Recommended, somewhat reluctantly.
