The marketing geniuses behind OmniCorp, inventors of military droids, want to expand their products into the USA. When golden cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is critically injured, the company offers to save him by using robot parts to rebuild his body. But their financially motivated mercy mission doesn't take into account what Murphy's mind may do to the machine.
Why Is Robocop (2014) Rated PG-13?
Robocop (2014) is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action including frenetic gun violence throughout, brief strong language, sensuality and some drug material.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Robocop (2014)...
Violence: Robots patrol a neighborhood (depicted in Iran) and scan citizens’ eyes and bodies to confirm identification and check for hidden weapons; Men with explosives covering their bodies launch an attack on the machines and one of their young sons approaches a droid with a knife and is shot off screen. In other scenes we see robots and humans battling with many presumed deaths; some shootings are seen on screen with limited blood effects. Some characters are shot with Taser weapons, one within a comedic context. A character threatens another by wrapping his hands around his neck. A few people are seen lying in hospital beds or wheelchairs with injuries that include missing limbs. A man who has lost most of his body is depicted with just his head, and his internal organs encased in a transparent enclosure.
Sexual Content: A married couple embraces and begins removing their clothes (we see her in a bra) but they are interrupted prior to any further sexual activity. Some brief sexual innuendo is heard.
Language: One sexual expletive in a non-sexual context is used. Moderate amounts of scatological and other profanities are included.
Alcohol / Drug Use: Minor references to drugs, alcohol and tobacco.
