The original Robocop is one of my favourite movies ever made. It was the first R18+ movie I ever watched (as a child, stupidly!) and it was a series responsible for one my all time favourite arcade games. I’ve been deathly afraid of the new remake of Robocop ever since it was announced. I’m not sure if this new trailer for the movie has changed my mind, but it has made me curious.
If anything the trailer does a decent job of justifying the new suit design (which I hated, and now feel like I can tolerate). It’s definitely a movie trailer — guns get fired, explosions explode, people say dramatic things — and its easy to be cynical, but I think I might just give this a second chance.
I’m sure it’ll still be a bit naff though!
