The original Robocop is awesome! I remember seeing the poster when it came out, with him standing with one foot out of the squad car, and thinking 'Wow, this looks ridiculous!'
, but it just worked. Not only is it a great action flick, but the snappy dialogue - especially between the suits in OCP - and the satirical bits - like having the news interrupted by ads (like the one for artificial hearts: 'Buy Jensen; buy Yamaha - remember: We care!'
) took it to the next level. Shame about the sequels (and the coming remake looks like crap).
today. Was kinda entertaining as long as you didn't stop to think about it. It had a great cast, but in some scenes it seemed like they were left to their own devices with poor results. It also had nicely executed action scenes and effects, but the story was beyond stupid and the 'reveal' was groan inducing.
Of the two, good old Robo is clearly the better movie :-)Edit: On returning here, the poster above didn't show, but it should be fixed now. Let me know if it still doesn't work.Edited by Kaplan - 7/23/13 at 6:14pm
