The movie also stars Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel Jackson an Joel Kinnamen as Alex Murphy/Robocop

loved the original 2 robocop movies as a kid, not to sure how i feel about them remaking it. Also suits a lil to black for my liking

I remember my mom took me to the preview for robocop 1 when I was younger. I got a big poster and they had a guy there dressed as robocop. So glad they are doing it again don't let me down.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Looks more like Batman if as a Power Ranger. I loved the original Robocop though, so I hope this will do it justice.

I predict they will make Robocop a PG movie and make him an anti hero that skirts the law as a badass but not as bad as those he is hunting. Like they tried to do with Kitt in that Knight Rider reboot garbage.

or he's an alien this time...

I actually like the old suit much better. The old suit was much bulkier and seemed like it could stand up to a lot of fire power, but this suit looks weak. I also don't like the color and the helmet. I wish they would've just went with the old suit.

Looking back on that, it just needs no updating. A classic case of getting it right the first time.

No.

Looks stupid to today's standards. Looks like an outdated arcade game suit.

Yes.

A little tweaking and updating to let the new movies take some ownership of the character but essentially don't completely **** with a perfectly good concept.

Certainly the Robocop 'saga' could use a complete overhaul. But the original was a classic. Nothing wrong with 80's excessiveness and ultra-violence.

Total Recall. Robocop. Next up they're gonna reboot Basic Instinct? Showgirls? Starship Troopers? Hollow Man?

Come to think of it, i CAN see Hollywood rebooting the entire Verhoeven library...

Just leave Sharon Stone on the shelf, please. She is fossilized.

Are you kidding me? This suit looks more realistic than the new thin latex suit. I mean, the new suit looks just like a batman suit except with a helmet instead of a mask. The original suit looks much better and it was kind of stupid to change it again. Now it just doesn't even look like a robocop but some generic superhero.

Absolutely. There is no way Robocop's suit ends up matte black in the final edit of the movie.
