Cool Videos: Honest Trailers does the original Robocop!

01.29.2014

As we prepare to witness how a remade ROBOCOP plays on the big screen, the folks at Screen Junkies have used their Honest Trailers venue to remind us of the awesome that is the original Paul Verhoeven film. The 1987 sci-fi actioner starred Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Kurtwood Smith, Ronny Cox, and Miguel Ferrer and featured, as outlined in the Honest Trailer, some of the best one-liners and blood-soaked violence ever put to film. For many of us here, the original ROBOCOP is a staple of our childhood (man, what does that say about our childhood,eh?) and has certainly created a gap in acceptance of any kind of remake. So, sit back and enjoy trailer voice guy narrate your way through a classic as we prepare to see it reimagined on the big screen.

I'd buy this for a dollar:

The ROBOCOP remake hits theaters on February 12, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: How many of you saw this in the theater when it originally came out? True story, I was ten and my grandparents took me. And they loved it. There's a reason I'm a film geek.

Saw the remake to review it. I was completely surprised it's not that bad, pretty good even. Lots of things have been changed and there are definitely things I really miss (Anne Lewis and Clarence Boddicker in particular) but on the whole, the changes make sense and there's still a satirical tone maintained throughout. Yes, it's PG-13, but they haven't de-fanged the thing completely.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that it was meant as a joke (hence the smiley) but well, I've been posting here for three years. You can go through my posts and hopefully realise I'm definitely not a plant. I went into the RoboCop remake expecting to hate it, but I was able to look at it as a sufficiently separate entity and kind of appreciate it for what it was. It will never replace the 1987 and realising that actually helped me kind of like it.

I'm actually glad to hear that, while I'm no fan of remakes it sounds as if they've actually tried to make a decent movie.

Thanks Bill. I understand how hard it is for everyone who's loved the original to give this a chance, but I was surprised and I do like the tone they went for. There's still a bit of an edge and it's still making satirical statements, even if said statements don't have the shock and in-your-face quality of those in the 1987 movie.

Another good one. Good ol' classic effects. The remake has nothing on the original.

The original was a fun violent film. With that warming cheesiness. Good humor.
I would think that the 80's R rating isn't as R as todays R rating. The new one might not have as much violence, but I am sure that it will have a bit.
I'm just trying to shed some light...

Lose the hand

this was as honest as it gets. Robo doesnt need a PG 13 re-fake any more than Total Recall did. Paul Verhoeven is rolling in his grave and they guy aint even freaking dead.

Overrated

If I hear one more person call the original ROBOCOP a masterpiece I'm going to go insane. It's a good action movie. That's it. Nothing brilliant. he's a walking comic book character. I've seen it more times than I can count and I'm still 100% down with the remake.

Tidbit

This was the first R movie I saw in the theaters. I was pretty traumatized by Murphy going down. Of course, that didn't stop me from going again.

You know, I wouldn't have a problem with a RoboCop remake if it was a passionate director lobbying to bring a fresh take on the story - but everything I've seen is a cash grab to sell toys and cash in on people old enough to remember the original, but lazy enough not to care this is going to be a soulless echo. Hell - maybe I'm wrong and this is

Hell - maybe I'm wrong and this is just being marketed wrong, but where's the subversive cynicism and paranoia of the original. The remake just looks like they said "Let's make it serious, and show Murphy's feelings." How about we don't show his feelings, and show fat guys on catwalks getting shot in the chest and falling two stories onto tables covered in test tubes and cocaine?

"Shoot rapists in the dick. Partner who never wait for back up" and starring Daft Punk and Lindsay Lohan, hahahaha. Seriously, RoboCop rocks especially that RoboCop cartoon. 1980s - It's Fantastic!
