But even if it looks interesting, there is one thing that bothers me a lot, and I mean A LOT. This movie is PG-13, when I heard this I said "What the f... is this PG-13 crap?" Since it's PG-13, that means it COULD be lame and not as awesome as the original. The first two movies were R-rated and the violent scenes were so brutal and gut-wrenching that you did not want to sleep at night, especially that surgical scene in part 2. But the third movie, well, it was shitty (foul language but necessary sometimes *wink*).
Now the ED-209 is CGI in this remake, no doubt about it. But I liked how it looked like in the original, I mean ED-209 has sirens? What the heck is this? Don't you guys remember in the original that the movements of ED-209 were not CGI, and all of them were stop-motion sequences? As I saw in a clip, this new RoboCop is more ninja style the way he fights, and this movie seems kind of dodgy the way they filmed the action sequences. As usual with remakes of classics, they take the easy way out, and it is none other than that crappy CGI. Now, the first time I saw the original movie I was like 7 years old, without even realizing it was R-rated. Then I saw RoboCop 2 and I skipped one of the scenes, since I was 7 at the time. Then I saw RoboCop 3 and it was a PG-13 movie, and that one totally sucked donkey ass, big time.
A friend of mine told me about this saying "This movie is dodgy. They're trying to make it an ok thing to dumb down the rating system again so pg-13 will be the new "R" rating. There is no way in hell that the producers and license holders really thought this was a cool idea, even if it was a money thing. Why create a bad reputation for your licensing of a brand? Was remastering really the worst alternative?... Its going to kill any fans of the original film and create a stigma for the ppl who didn't grow up when it was in theater. The new movie is going to hurt RoboCop."
Come to think of it, I agree with that. Well, let's see when it comes out.
God Bless and Play Hard Games!
