Robocop: Teaser Trailer

Go back and watch the original Robocop; I did recently. It’s not really notable as an action movie. It’s crazily satirical and accusatory of the overindulgent and corporatized 80s. That’s why it works and that’s why it’s great. (If you’ve never seen it, I recommend it. Plus, it’s oddly prophetic regarding Detroit.)

This just looks like yet another boring action movie retread. I hope I’m wrong and it actually has some soul. But given that it has four screenwriters credited, I’m not crossing my fingers.
