First clip from Jose Padilha's RoboCop fires in

Jan. 15, 2014by: Ryan Miller

Sony has dished out the very first clip from Jose Padilha's upcoming ROBOCOP remake which sees the titular hero in a field test where he has to fight robots with henchmen-like aim—no easy task! It seems to me that some fans are starting to warm up to this one, but I'm still not convinced just yet. I do like Joel Kinnaman though, so there's that!

The year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Overseas, their drones have been used by the military for years -- and it's meant billions for OmniCorp's bottom line. Now OmniCorp wants to bring their controversial technology to the home front, and they see a golden opportunity to do it. When Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) -- a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit -- is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer. OmniCorp envisions a RoboCop in every city and even more billions for their shareholders, but they never counted on one thing: there is still a man inside the machine pursuing justice.

ROBOCOP stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Michael K. Williams, Jennifer Ehle, Jay Baruchel, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Samuel L. Jackson. It opens February 12th.

I'm not completely sold on this movie yet.

Although visually this remake looks good, the PG 13 rating turns me off considering the Hard R the original had. Also, I think this new Robobcop is retaining a bit too much of his human personality. He comes off more like a guy in a high tech suit, and not a cyborg. The original Robocop was mostly a robot at first, who slowly exhibited signs of humanity. The jury is still out.

Two thoughts.

I think there's far too much focus on the PG-13 rating. While it means they can only use "fuck" once and keep the blood to a minimum, it can still maintain an acceptable level of violence. The rating will allow, hopefully, a larger audience. I won't read any more into it than that.

Secondly, I love Robocop. It's one of my favourite movies ever. I've got the original VHS, the first DVD version, the Criterion version and the trilogy pack. That being said, I think the very best

Secondly, I love Robocop. It's one of my favourite movies ever. I've got the original VHS, the first DVD version, the Criterion version and the trilogy pack. That being said, I think the very best thing we can do is separate the two, I've got very high hopes for this movie but I know without a shadow of a doubt that this version will NEVER replace the original. I won't look at this as a remake but perhaps a gateway for a new audience to seek out what many of us fell in love with from 1987.

I'm not sure if I heard it right. There's a slight "Whoosh. Whoosh" sounds when RoboCop moves. I really hope I heard it right because, if that turns out to be right, it's great they keep RoboCop's movement sounds.

Can't Wait.

Like anything, this needs to be given a chance.

It's not Verhoeven's version, as it appears all it shares is the characters and the base idea. The Comic Con panel video that is suggested after this clip plays is more than reassuring. As above, I really hope this gets a fair chance.
