"Robocop" may not been the perfect Valentine's Day movie to see, but you can say that it is a love story between man and machine.

In this case, it is a remake of the 1987 blockbuster that spawned two sequels, cartoons, comic books, and a television series about Alex Murphy, a dedicated Detroit police officer rebooted -- and upgraded -- by shadowy corporation OCP as the half-human, half-machine cyborg Robocop with the prime objectives to serve the public trust, protect the innocent, and uphold the law.

You can say that "Robocop" is a love letter to fans of Batman and Marvel Comics, with co-stars Michael Keaton (Tim Burton's Batman), Gary Oldman (Commissioner Gordon in Jonathan and Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy with Christian Bale as Batman), and Samuel L. Jackson (S.H.I.E.L.D. superspy Nick Fury in "Iron Man," "Iron Man 2," "Thor," "Captain America: The First Avenger," "The Avengers," and "Captain America: The Winter Soldier").

You might say that "Robocop" is somewhat of a love story, as Alex tries to be a husband and father to his wife and son -- despite the circumstances; this is what was missing in 1990's "Robocop 2" and 1993's "Robocop 3," which are so-so, yet both of them does have their moments.

Both the original and this update are relevant to what's been happening in terms of the economy, which includes the recession, corporate greed, and big business. Like brooding Caped Crusader Batman in Gotham City, Robocop defends Detroit from the acronym CCP: crime, corruption, and politics, which is what our Motor City has been struggling with in recent years.

Still, you can definitely feel the love with "Robocop."
