I knew absolutely nothing about its animated series until after; but even still I was intrigued by the movie’s premise as a child! A security guard’s dreams come true when he is selected to be transformed into a cybernetic police officer. It stars Matthew Broderick as the title character (he lacks the goofy bumbling charm), along with Rupert Everett as Dr. Claw (your not supposed to show his face), Michelle Trachtenberg as Penny (she’s okay), and Dabney Coleman as Chief Quimby (he’s fine). Three new characters were introduced, Dr. Brenda Bradford (played by Joely Fisher), Mayor Wilson (played by Cheri Oteri) and the Gadgetmobile (voiced by D. L. Hughley) all of them are not wanted. So in short the movie isn’t perfect and doesn’t know what it wants to be; but its guilty pleasure for me. A bland recommendation for fans of the classic animated series!
