A good movie, but nothing like the original
If you were anticipating an ultraviolet gore-fest reincarnated of the original with amazing graphics and scenes of epidemic violence, so was I. But, with the obvious 13+ rating next to my review, I was pretty surprised.
This is actually a pretty good movie if you take out the fact that it is nothing like the original in censorship, or lack thereof. It has, in my opinion, a flatly good model (by the end), meaning that it was kinda rushed and not so good at first, but sprinted its way into a dynamic excuse for the character to become a good person.
The violence was pretty censored. The shootout scene with the weapons-dealer, grizzly in the original, was seen with red-lensed night-vision settings and I don't recall seeing anything horrible. The only bad part was in the picture of the main guy's accident and the scene when the lead scientist takes Robocop's armor off to reveal what was left (Some may be disgusted, I was disappointed with the effects).
If you want your kids to see this, make sure that they can handle the idea of governmental and business corruption. That is a driving theme throughout the movie. Other than that, this movie is pretty clean. I don't remember much cussing and there's sexuality but nothing to cover your child's eyes in embarrassment and horror over. It was pretty good, but not if you want an ultra-violent remake of the original
