    idk, looks like pretty every other movie coming out nowadays; save money by just re-hashing an old story, and throw all the extra funds into CGI and dubsteppy advertising. A visual programmers wet-dream, but not much in terms of cognitive stimulus.

    This is what happens when you let a brazilian take over the job. They just don't do it right!

    NO NO NO DO YOU NOT SEE IT? DO YOU NOT SEE THE GREATNESS?!"?!


    the originals strength did not acutally lie with peter wellers robocop, it was with dark futuristic automated unethical umbrella corp ruling the world, the decadent rich evil CEOs, ED 209, a society with little to no regard at all for human life, street punks so nihilistic and sociopathic it could only be the fututre (even if everything looked early 90s) and most of all, and this is imortant CLARENCE BODDICKER. thats right, can you fly bobby? HEAHAEEAHAHEEAH sooo awesome,
    and then gratuitious death scene. that was so powerful. ok now theyve replaced it with a car bomb which almost makes me think this is bait but ok, whatever, ill run with it.

    the part when robocop stops going after the purse snatchers and the pickpockets on the street and starts going after the big corporate, the real evil in the world, is of course where the dutch director went right (thats right, robocop is by a dutch guy who apparently has made quite a name for himself paul van teehoven or soomething, whatever) and is definitely where well be seeing samuel l jacksons main performance. because hell be that guy, wont he.
    '

    all in all, what you fail to realize is that robocop 3 has that very charachter in it, a robocop cyborg ninja. which is clearly what this one is based upon. robocop2 wasnt very good. robocop3, with the ninja was... hard to put into words.

    but thats the one theyre going for, clearly. thats all i wanted to say, x.

    2 >>> 3 though. With Kane peddling his pesky nuke. Plus the fail Robocop 2's at the beginning of the film. All in all, you can't beat the first. Peter Weller nailed that performance.

    If new one does not have Clarence and his boys pumping him full of lead, not valid! That scene is one of the most vivid things I have ever seen on a movie, powerful 100 bullet death!

    Looks absolute gash, tbh most action films nowadays are fucking awful- always lack substance and clever storylines, just full on shit acting, cliche back stories and over the top explosions and action scenes.

    Guaranteed to get rave reviews though.

    zack did you just cut and past a comment from earlier up? because someone said nearly just that. this is why we need a manic jack moustache smiley, not because he a plaugarize, but because he said it first.

    and, like karen said, once thats been implemented 90% any and all that couldve got it, are gone. which brings an interesting idea to mind, about the place which we do not talk about. get back to you on this.
