Wanna take a guess what the new RoboCop is rated?

Dec. 11, 2013by: Kevin Woods

There are a lot of mixed feelings already towards Jose Padilha's ROBOCOP, and those who are dead set against seeing it will only find this next bit of info to be even more reason to avoid it when it hits theaters February 12 2014. The MPAA has given the Joel Kinnaman-starring remake its rating and (no big surprise here) it has been labeled PG-13 for “intense sequences of action including frenetic gun violence throughout, brief strong language, sensuality and some drug material."

I've pretty much dug everything we've seen so far from the trailers, although I may be in the minority on that. Still, I'll reserve judgment on it until I actually see it. WORLD WAR Z was PG-13, after all. ROBOCOP may still be able to surprise us.

In RoboCop, 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.

Directed by Jose Padilha, ROBOCOP stars Joel Kinnaman as the title character, Gary Oldman as the scientist who creates ROBOCOP, and Samuel L. Jackson as media mogul Pat Novak. The film is eyeing a Feb. 12, 2014 release.

Extra Tidbit: Are you surprised by the PG-13 rating?

Rated 'Lame' for "frenetic gun action" in that one scene where RoboCop shoots robots on a target range.

No surprise

I thought you did a story on this months ago saying it was PG-13? Either way, I won't be seeing it. I didn't watch Total Recall and I won't see one of my favorite Sci-Fi action films turned to junk.

Think before seeing it, not after...

"Still, I'll reserve judgment on it until I actually see it."

Unless you get to see it free, as press, you're supporting it. If you pay for a ticket and then decide it sucks; too bad, they've got your money and their box office figure. If everyone sees it before deciding if it sucks, the film will be a smash hit and spawn 10 sequels...and still suck. The simple fact is movie ticket dollars are votes. What you think of the movie after voting will only impact other people, that might read it

Part toddler, part squirrel, all PG-13

So not only are we getting a shitty remake, we are getting a shitty watered down remake.

I'm actually not that bothered about it because the MPAA only makes movies PG-13 these days just for not having the F-word more than once.

Not surprise that it's got PG-13 but "frenetic gun violence" works for me.
