So I stopped by the redbox yesterday and picked up the new Robocop movie. And I must say, it is worth the $1.20. Anything more than that, I probably would have had to re-evaluate my life. I don't want to say the movie was bad but.... I think they could have done better. Much MUCH better. When I watch movies based on old movies, tv shows, cartoons, etc. I try really hard not to compare it to the original. Not too look at it through a fan-boy filter but as a brand new stand-alone movie. I loved the idea of a Robocop reboot. Especially how awesome a lot of movies are done these days (see Iron Man). However, this one was poorly executed. I was sooooo disappointed. The acting was sub-par and the story line was.... whaaaaaaaa? If you saw it, you know what I mean. No effort put forth whatsoever other than them calling him Alex or Murphy instead of Robocop, which I liked. There's probably some fan-fiction on DA that's better. I was not impressed. I think this is the only time in my life that I actually thought, "man, Michael Bay should have done this movie".
Have you seen Robocop? If so, what did you think? If not, save up $1.20 and watch it because.... Robocop!
