ROBOCOP (2014) : REVIEW
February 12, 2014
"You said you could save him, but what kind of a life will he have?"
Like I oftenly said before, remaking movies became some sort of Hollywood trend nowadays, not minding how highly unnecessary it was to do so. This time, it was Paul Verhoeven's 1987 original Robocop's turn (the second time Verhoeven's movie got a remake after Len Wiseman's 2012 Total Recall). Steered by director José Padilha and screenwriter Joshua Zetumer, Robocop, the remake, got slicker in jet-black suit and glowing visor with sleek motorcycle and advanced $2.7 billion tech. I honestly didn't expect much, mostly because I liked the original one (sooo thrilling) and felt that making a remake of it was a dumb move. So, how was it?
