What do you think about that, original Robocop?
Not a huge shocker by any means, but yes…..the upcoming Robocop remake has been given a PG-13 rating. Considering that the recently released trailer seemed to be going that route anyway, everything seems to be going as planned for this unnecessary remake. Next up: the inevitable box office failure.
This remake sports a pretty strong cast (Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton), but I really think it’s doomed. To make it worse on a personal levee, the original Robocop is a HUGE piece of my childhood. They’re probably not even smart enough to fit the whole “I’d buy that for dollar!” saying into the remake. And knowing that it looks like I won’t even get the glorious over-the-top violence that was displayed in the 1987 original is more than disappointing. Where the hell am I supposed to get my mutated toxic waste bad guy fix now???
