You might not immediately associate this year's remake of the 1987 hit, ROBOCOP, with Fatherhood - but in a weird way, it's a movie with emotional elements completely tied to being a Dad. While I'll go into that in more detail in my formal review, what I can tell you is that Joel Kinnaman does a fine job of portraying a Father that's dealing with some extraordinary circumstances... but this is ROBOCOP, and it's also a fine action film that movie-minded Dads will dig. With that, my friends at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment and I have teamed-up to bring you a giveaway for Rock Father's Day 2014. One of you will score the just-released Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD combo pack!
Directed by José Padilha, ROBOCOP
stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley and Samuel L. Jackson. In ROBOCOP,
the year is 2028 and OmniCorp – the world’s leader in robot technology – sees a golden opportunity to reap billions for their company. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) – a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit – is critically injured, OmniCorp grabs their chance to build a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and will stop at nothing – no matter the cost to Alex – to make sure the program succeeds. But OmniCorp never counted on one thing: there is still a man fighting inside the machine. The film is written by Joshua Zetumer and Edward Neumeier & Michael Miner, and produced by Marc Abraham and Eric Newman. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Columbia Pictures’ released ROBOCOP
theatrically on February 12, 2014.
The ROBOCOP Blu-ray is charged with nearly an hour of extra features and featurettes, taking fans behind-the-scenes of OmniCorp to witness the future of law enforcement, learn the secrets of director Jose Padilha, and explore the making of the film.
