New Robocop movie trailer

I'll let you decide.

My opinion:

IT LOOKS LIKE SHIT! <---

It's questionable, but it does look better than anticipated.

Honestly the trailer looks much better than I expected. Granted, I think the trailer shows about 85% of the movie already, and Robocop was one of those movies that had that unique sarcastic tongue in cheek overtones of itself within the movie (socioeconomical satire and all) that this movie sure looks to eliminate by taking itself too seriously. The new suit looks awesome, and I geeked out when they showed the classic color variant before they decided to give it a black paint job. Looks like a great cast, crap movie or not I'm sure I'll give it a go in theaters. I hope it has some of that Dredd vibe from that previous flick to give it that extra ooomph.

Dredd was excellent, I really enjoyed it all the way through, though it really didn't have anything before it to steer it in any direction (OK, a lot of influences, but the previous Dredd movie really didn't capture the tone like this new one did).

This, however, looks pointless. It's based on a movie that, in my opinion, wasn't that good anyway. Robocop was always interesting for it's effects at the time, but really, the movie was nothing special. In that respect, this version looks like it's following suit, just another 'filler' in the cinemas. I get the nostalgia thing, and I love The Expendables movies because of their referencing all those old 80s/90s action films, but for me Robocop was never that special, and this film doesn't have much to live up to.

Besides all that, the weirdest thing for me is just how boring it looks. We've already seen Robocop, we've already gotten over the excitement of seeing a man in a robot suit. That was 26 years ago. So what can this film possibly do that will excite audiences now? It looks like a film that should have been made as a sequel back when the original came out - it doesn't seem to offer any ounce of excitement at all.

Meh The trailer looks kinda like a mix of Will Smith's IRobot and Universal Soldier. Both horrible flicks. Plus it suffers from that too clean look like it's all plastic and just made when it comes to sets. Plus i despise the 45 degree POV camera shots. That typea camera shot just tells me amateur at the helm. Want to see over use of 45 degree POV cam watch Halle Berry's Catwoman.

Well, if they're going with technophobia, maybe they could have something. But I still think Robocop is an 80s movie, and could have only ever been made in the 80s...you know, when violent crime actually was an epidemic, and movies were over-the-top violent.

Robocop had a nasty, violent vibe to it (as mentioned above), and a lot of sarcastic commentary about society. It wasn't PC and wasn't trying to appeal to the masses.

This looks like a softened version.... which to me, misses the point.

I'm overseas, New Zealand to be exact, and most people that I know who have seen this trailer are NOT impressed.

I doubt they will go with the same level of violence with the infamous gang massacre scene that they did in the original. That's still shockingly violent. It looks to me like they are going more '12a' (PG13) with this one.

Either way, like I said, Robocop has always been kind of 'meh' to me. It's the kind of film you'd flick over to during commercials whilst watching something better. It's not got the charm of a lot of 80s action films for me - it's just violence, violence, violence.

Of course it wishes it was Dredd, the original Robocop movie started life as a Judge Dredd movie pitch.

Seeing if this works.



Looks like it does. New message code added; youtube
Use it just like the IMG tag but you'll only need the code after the "v=" YouTube gives you.

Example: You only need the highlighted blue text
Code:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=JFwECL0Vh6U
This is what you post: but replace { with [ and } with ]
Code:
{youtube}JFwECL0Vh6U{/youtube}
Later on I'll create a YouTube icon in the Advanced message posting interface (right next to the insert image icon) to help make it easier for peeps that don't want to enter BBCode manually.
