Earlier this year, a viral Internet campaign was created in order to raise money for a RoboCop statue to be placed in Detroit. In less than 10 days, the campaign reached its $50,000 goal. The estimated 8-foot tall RoboCop statue will be bronze and it will be revealed to the public during the spring next year. Will it be awesome or ridiculous? Probably both, but we'll just have to wait and see!
RoboCop is a science-fiction film about a cop, Alex Murphy, who is brutally murdered by a street gang and then reconstructed into a robot-cop named, what else, RoboCop. RoboCop was created in order to fight dangerous criminals and he proves to be very successful. However, because of his success, he becomes the number one target of the evil and severely violent, Clarence Boddicker. Will RoboCop be able to defeat him or will he be destroyed by Boddicker? Watch to find out.
I found RoboCop to be a pretty ridiculous movie. Just because I thought it was ridiculous doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it. I liked watching RoboCop defend the city of Detroit from the cronies who kept trying to destroy it from being peaceful. I also enjoyed watching RoboCop recall memories from his human life. There's a lot of gore in this film and I think some of those who have not seen this will not want to see this film because of it, even if the gore is a bit over-the-top and fake looking.
