WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In 2028 Detroit, robot technology conglomerate Omnicorp sees its chance to bring its android defence unit to the streets when Alex Murphy (Kinnaman), a loving husband and father as well as hard-working cop, is badly injured in the line of duty.

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
