Kotaku liked it, too:

The Robocop remake, out in theaters today, is a pitch-perfect, badass update of a movie that is practically legendary. As if that weren't surprising enough, it also manages to revive that lost art of the 80s: the smart B-movie that stumbles a bit but still goes where blockbusters fear to tread.
You'll be surprised at how deep the science fictional speculation is here. The action is pretty damn fun too.
While the ending isn't as satisfying as one would hope, the fact is that this movie is brutally awesome in ways it simply has no right to be. This Robocop is so fully reimagined that it might as well be a different movie from the 80s original. Many of the themes are the same, as are the characters, but this Robocop shines on its own terms the way the Planet of the Apes reboot did in Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

I never thought I'd be saying this, but Robocop is one of the better science fiction movies of the year so far. You won't want to miss it.
