|Joel Kinnaman is Robocop|
RoboCop is low-brow, but worth every 108 minutes and every penny of the ticket price.
Like the half human half robot at the center of the action, it has a brain, a heart and a sense of humor.
Think of him as Frankenstein for the 21st century.
When Alex, a good cop, is blown to bits, a greedy capitalist (Michael Keaton) turns him into a mechanical crime fighter with the help of a naive physician (Gary Oldman).
No bad guy is safe from this cop and no segment of society gets a free pass in this smartish film, and that includes politicians, the press, corporations, and even law enforcement.
Samuel L. Jackson is inspired as a smarmy, spin-mongering cable TV news show host in bed with the greedy capitalist.
So leave your inner naysayer at home and have some fun at the multiplex.
