Uh... MAN VS MACHINE! FREE WILL VS NO WILL! LAW VS JUSTICE! Uh... That last one sounds TOO familiar... Hmmm...OlasDAlmighty said:Ah, so it's about a cold calculating organization taking something long dead and trying to artificially to bring it back to life; giving us a theoretically superior version while at the same time stripping away most of the original's humanity turning it into something barely reminiscent of what we used to know.
Wait... what were we...? nevermind.
The first one is still a brilliant film. Check out some of the trivia about it, about what the director was going for.Norithics said:Robocop. Man, now there's something that I no longer understand now that I'm not a kid. I mean, sure! Back in the day, he was the absolute coolest. But then again, I also liked Battletoads at that age, so it's pretty clear what a terrible judge I was.
Eh. Probably a decent popcorn movie.
Nailed it.Oie Justes said:I think it's in the same boat as, say, Total Recall.
The original was fine and still holds up. There's really no reason to reboot it, except as a guaranteed "moderate success" by Hollywood. Every person who sees it will say, at best, "It was okay, but I prefer the original."
I might watch it when it ends up on Netflix or in the bargain DVD bin, but probably not.
It is getting a bit sad, but cashing in on something with a name people are attached too is a safe way to try an make some money is my bet on their line of thinking.Hazy992 said:Of course they've rebooted Robocop, you can't expect Hollywood to have original ideas can you?!
That being said... looks alright I guess...
