    I think they've just shown all the best bits.

    I like the look, and that he has emotions. The first set of films were awesome, but lacked character depth.

    Looks good, hope it has skull crushing graphic violence. It is Robocop afterall.

    I think I've just burped a little bit of sick into my mouth after watching that.
    Mostly remakes annoy me (apart from Dredd), and remakes of 'classics' doubly so. The first Robocop was also a bit tongue-in-cheek, and this just seems to be hardcore sci-fi which will, IMO, lose a lot of it's original character. Also not happy about the family thing going on, In the original one of the main points of the film was they took someone (semi-legally) and turned him into a machine. This one reeks of a 'save my husband/daddy' sub-story which makes me very wary that they have spoilt the whole premise of the original.

    Looks…interesting. Not as bad as I feared….interested to know what it will be rated though. Still not keen on the black suit. My gut is telling me that is will be an entertaining action flick…but with non of the social commentary or satire of the original. Does look worth a go though (Plus liking the Robo voice).

    Don't you mean the First film was brilliant - the others were just terrible. And the last one - well you can see the wires attached when he was flying !!

    Agree - I bet there is no 'I'd buy that for a dollar' and of course the famous car ads...



    And remember.....we care.

    The first thing that popped into my head when watching it was why is his right hand not armour protected?

    Yeah! The hand thing is bugging me too...just looks wrong! Guessing its a reference to the whole "Saving the Arm" thing in the original?

    Didn't they (almost) save the left arm in the original? Better go watch it tonight to make sure.

    Yeah think it was the left...but Bob Morton tells the techs to "lose it".

    Dang, I love that film.
