RoboCop: Another Remake, Another Attempt To Fix What's Not Broken!
The world of remakes is continuing to sweep its greedy hand across the iconic films of times gone by – and the next in line for the 21st century treatment is RoboCop.
From what we have seen so far, it could be a worthy adaptation of the hard ass, "part man, part machine" that we all know and love… except for one thing. The famous bionic suit that was worn by super cop Alex Murphy in the original has been remodelled into some kind of plastic onesie.
If you could imagine the Batsuit making a baby with the gimp from Pulp Fiction and spawning a Halo Master Chief lookalike, then sticking it in Detroit and calling it a robot cop – you would have the 2013 adaptation of RoboCop.
The story line seems to mirror that of the 1987 RoboCop, except with a slightly more futuristic version of ‘the future’ – and hopefully something a bit more impressive than a 1986 Ford Taurus for RC’s mode of transport!
The cast is looking pretty top class – with Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Joel Kinnaman as RoboCop, even Clive Owen has been rumoured as part of the RC 2013 team. To top that lot off, the stunning star of Sucker Punch, Abbie Cornish tackles the role of Mrs RoboCop (and she really is quite the peach).
If we were to turn a blind eye to the semi-robotised diving suit, most other aspects of the film we have seen so far look the dogs-bionic-balls and as long as they don’t give the story line too much of the Hollywood treatment, this could be one of the top films of 2013!
