THERE BE SPOILERS HERE
Robocop is played by Swedish actor, Joel Kinnaman. The bad guys are multiple from the drug and gun running Antoine Vallon, played by Patrick Garrow to the evil Robocop controller/trainer Rick Mattox played by Jackie Earl Haley to the evil corporate president Ramond Sellars played by Michael Keaton. Thrown into the mess is Gary Oldman who plays Dr. Dennet Norton, Robocop's wife and son, Clara and David, played by Abbie Cornish and John Paul Ruttan, and a combination of every over-the-top political commentator you've ever seen, Pat Novak played by the one and only, Samuel L. Jackson.
The often messy the plot is marked by some nice moments and interesting acting vignettes. The political subtext is a little heavy handed at times, but the satire over all does work. I do have to wonder about the moment when we see all that remains of the human Murphy/Robocop. It is a bit creepy and left me a bit surprised that the movie kept its PG-13 rating.
