Robocop Remake First impression
Have you seen the new Robocop trailer? It sucks.
Ok let's break it down. He doesn't get shot he get blown up. His wife and kid are in it though out the movie, which I wouldn't mind but in this it looks like it will be an actress with not much to do and being an emotional drag. I will admit this is me being pessimistic but for now I'm not convinced.
Next he still has two limbs which looses the whole Johnny got his gun/Frankenstein metaphor. He still has emotions and a personality which looses all sense of him becoming a machine.
But they do pay some homage to the original; they brought back the matte black paint job from Robocop's car. And put it all over this suit. (Michael Keaton just because you were Batman doesn't mean you can make everything black.) Some people have said they don't have a problem with the suit being black. Really people? Come on it boring, it looks unfinished. When I first saw it I thought it was one colour because they were going to put CGI graphics over the top.
