the new ‘Robocop’ delivers on robot cop promise

By brendon October 08, 2012 @ 12:08 PM


The ‘Robocop’ re-make filmed some more scenes in Toronto over the weekend, and true to their word, there is a half robot, half police officer.

Directed by the very capable José Padilha (‘Elite Squad‘), it stars the terrific Joel Kinnaman (Detective KFed on ‘The Killing’) and a cast way way better than a movie with such a stupid premise deserves, including Samuel L. Jackson, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael Keaton, and Gary Oldman, who was probably told that this is another Batman movie.

    Red Dawn, now Robocop. What other movies from the ’80′s are they going to reboot?

    Is this movie really necessary?

    Not sure if I like the suit being all black. And I really hope his face isn’t uncovered the whole time! Other than that, I guess the new suit looks okay so far.

    Do you think the suit should be assless?

    You included Samuel L. Jackhole as part of a cast that’s “…way way better than a movie with such a stupid premise deserves…” So, failure.
