The Man Beat the Machine says the cover.

"How director José Padilha ("Elite Squad") attracted Hollywood and made Robocop a 140 million dollars Brazilian movie."

-Inside the magazine, after a test screening for an audience:

"Who thought that this movie was bad?"
No one raises their hands.
"Who thought that this movie was good?"
No one raises their hands.
"Great? Excellent?"
Everybody raises their hands.







In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the center of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilizes their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.


Robocop stars Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Jay Baruchel, Abbie Cornish, Jackie Earle Haley, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Michael Kenneth Williams. The release date is set for February 7th, 2014.

The movie was.....bad. The whole movie could have shortened to a half an hour.
TheRealistStarLord - 2/2/2014, 6:27 AM
The story was too predictable and the villains were boring...
TheRealistStarLord - 2/2/2014, 6:28 AM
Samuel L Jackson was great in it tho

Watching this on Wednesday, courtesy of Sony Pictures!
Totally looking forward to it.

The constant flow of remakes is becoming tiresome. This looks like utter garbage, no edginess to it, certainly no originality just more garbage with an old familiar name.

I am also utterly sick of seeing Samuel L Jackson pop up in everything.

Grif didn't get on the first page of the casting to post the word shit, so he clicks on the first thing non related to make sure no one forgets how simple minded his reviews are.

Why do you still watch movies?

"Superman vs Jesse" will be better than RDJ vs Trevor.
VolkanTaskillas - 2/2/2014, 6:47 AM
It only be a blockbuster in Brazil. MEH!
justsomedude - 2/2/2014, 6:49 AM
movie was better than i thought it was going to be.. even though we all knew how it was going to end, the extra stuff thrown in made it far more interesting than i thought.. good effort, good movie.

One guy raises his COCK!

I think it's going to do better than expected.
McNyagano - 2/2/2014, 7:23 AM

ibravosp5 - 2/2/2014, 7:25 AM

DelTorite - 2/2/2014, 7:43 AM
Shitty right-wing magazine. Hopefully the movie is good.
thewolfx - 2/2/2014, 7:49 AM
Eww that black suit is ugly
Pedrito - 2/2/2014, 7:53 AM
Is this shit gonna flop hard?

@BboiBlack
Classic Lex >> Mandarin > Trevor > nerdy, whiny, tiny Lex (Jesse)
But yea, it'll be better than RDJ vs Trevor, slightly better.

Padilha wanted to do a Elysium-type of movie...with Robocop in it...let see how that goes..

Don´t have a good vibe about this film
Hitboyj - 2/2/2014, 8:28 AM

Advance screening.

If the movie sucks it won't be because of the director, it'll be cause of the studio and how they pretty much handcuffed him.
TheRealistStarLord - 2/2/2014, 10:42 AM
The direction of the movie was good, I don't blame thedirector, I blame the writer(s) for the most part. Jose Padiha is a good director no doubt.

I'd buy that magazine for a dollar.
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/2/2014, 2:34 PM
Im a huge Robocop fan and still love the first but man, im very disappointed with the color scheme. I am glad that they kept the color scheme as a tribute for a small time but Robocop is not Batman.
bluedude - 2/2/2014, 7:28 PM
I think this will flop
mgeoff88 - 2/2/2014, 9:34 PM
I'll admit, this does look pretty good for a reboot.
damntree - 2/2/2014, 9:42 PM
"The story was too predictable and the villains were boring" - So, just like the first one.
NinjaKickTheDamnRabbit - 2/3/2014, 3:01 AM
1987 Robocop is timeless, this looks shallow. Latexcop.
riseofloganX36 - 2/3/2014, 8:21 AM
this is about as usless as total recall.

They should just re-release RoboCop im sure it will do good. HollyWood should stay away from remakeing classic movies and if they are ganna do remakes rob zombie should do them.
