Everything Wrong With Paul Verhoeven's ROBOCOP

Everything Wrong With Paul Verhoeven's ROBOCOP

With José Padilha's reboot launching into theaters next week, CinemaSins decides to pick apart 1987's original RoboCop film in their latest segment of the "Everything Wrong With" franchise. So if you have 7 Minutes of free time, then Come on over and take a look!

There's a new law enforcer in town and he's half man, half machine! From the director of Total Recall and Basic Instinct comes a "sci-fi fantasy with sleek, high-powered drive" (Time) about an indestructible high-tech policeman who dishes out justice at every turn! When a good cop (Peter Weller) gets blown away by some ruthless criminals, innovative scientists and doctors are able to piece him back together as an unstoppable crime-fighting cyborg called "RoboCop." Impervious to bullets and bombs, and equipped with high-tech weaponry, RoboCop quickly makes a name for himself by cleaning up the crime-ridden streets of violence-ravaged Detroit. But despite his new, hardened exterior, RoboCop is tormented by scraps of memory of his former life, and relives vivid nightmares of his own death at the hands of the vicious killers. Now he is out to seek more than justice...he wants revenge!

RoboCop was Directed by Paul Verhoeven, Written by Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner and starred Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O'Herlihy, Ronny Cox, and Kurtwood Smith.

Whoever agrees with anything this video pointed out should have their balls shot off...

You have painted a target on yourself, @Anthony. Best of luck. This should be interesting...

Hey... let's be real. Robocop was awesome! This is like trying to make a Movie Sins for The Dark Knight.

Not Rises though... Rises sucked.

Well this was a stretch at best. The original Robocop was great! Not so thrilled about the remake. @ Anthony Stark - were you trying to piss people off?
venkman9993592 - 2/4/2014, 10:56 AM
This list is total BS. Out of the 60 "sins" there's really only 5 or 6 minor ones. The real problems with this movie were never mentioned and it is still a great film.

robocop > iron man
LoudLon - 2/4/2014, 11:12 AM
I have no intention of watching this video, because there isn't a damn thing wrong with Robocop.
heitish - 2/4/2014, 11:21 AM
These videos is fan-tastic!
Keep 'em coming!
Chewtoy - 2/4/2014, 11:23 AM
Yeah, this one just made me think how awesome the original Robocop was.
Enphlieuwince - 2/4/2014, 11:25 AM
Hey guys, it's all in good fun.
geeekgod - 2/4/2014, 11:29 AM
There is nothing wrong with Robocop. Nuff' said
geeekgod - 2/4/2014, 11:30 AM
The original of course, not that piece of shit remake
DarkKnight2010 - 2/4/2014, 11:31 AM
What's bad is this movie was made so long ago, and with all the advancements with movie technology, it's going to show the remake who's boss!
ManDeth - 2/4/2014, 11:34 AM
The Star Wars bit at the end was great!
SimonM7 - 2/4/2014, 11:38 AM
These videos are all garbage. You need a grain of truth for something to be clever and funny, you can't just randomly whine about stuff and expect people to find it amusing. Or you can, I guess, because they keep making these.

Red Letter Media popularised the brainy commentary and deconstruction of movies, but the difference is those are funny and actually insightful. It's the difference between early Zero Punctuation and Angry Videogame Nerd's constant barrage of the word "diarrhea". But I suppose it takes all kinds.
jj2112 - 2/4/2014, 11:51 AM
They should do Everything wrong with Everything wrong
willg - 2/4/2014, 12:05 PM
Hey @jj2112 they did do and everything wrong with everything wrong. I love these guys. Most of their stuff is pretty funny. By the way guys this is all in fun. They even do movies that they love. Like they say, "no film is without sins".
Maximus101 - 2/4/2014, 12:58 PM
These videos are stupid period.
Maximus101 - 2/4/2014, 12:59 PM
Geekgod the movie isn't out yet so you should stop assuming things. There is nothing wrong with remakes.
TheFox - 2/4/2014, 1:44 PM

... But I'm more than willing to have a bit of fun at the film's expense. It can take it.

Durango95 - 2/4/2014, 2:12 PM
A better title would be "Whats wrong with this website?" The first installment would be...this article. The original Robocop was a great film. The remake was a complete fail.
ManCalledSting - 2/4/2014, 2:12 PM
How can you do an "everything wrong with" list, if there was nothing wrong. Crazy kids these days.
jimoakley666 - 2/4/2014, 2:13 PM
The original Robocop was good. But not the sacred cow half of you lot make it out to be.
By the way, loving all the retards slagging off a film they haven't seen yet. Derping the [frick] outta' their own herps.

with all the flaws it'll still shit on the remake.
fullmetal - 2/4/2014, 6:31 PM
I rarely comment on here, but whoever subscribes to this idiotic video's opinion is an utter degenerate and has no idea about what a good film is...if this film is so bad WHY IN THE HELL IS THERE A "CRITERION COLLECTION" VERSION OF THIS FILM?!!!! Films that get the "criterion Collection" treatment only get that special status if they are important films that advanced the medium of cinema!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You people are so stupid, please kill yourselves and save humanity from your idiocy...
AnAvenger - 2/4/2014, 7:40 PM
lol @ all of you guys taking this seriously. You're making them stronger with your hate for their videos.
Ghostt - 2/4/2014, 8:50 PM
Great movie. Looks like they were reaching for problems

BULLSHIT!! Robocop is perfect! ;)
nikgrid - 2/5/2014, 1:10 AM
.....and the new movie is not bad either
seantwakafilmyguy - 2/5/2014, 1:13 AM
It's a classic but oof... those are some good points.
jimoakley666 - 2/5/2014, 5:41 AM
@fullmetal - The Criterion Collection has many titles. Some perfect. Some great. Some flat out shit. But hey, it's all opinions, eh?

Why the [frick] DID they load the ED209 with live ammunition?! That's a [frick]ing good point. And don't even get me started on Stretch Armstrong falling outta' the window at the end of the movie. My friends and I used to laugh our tits off at that. Still do.
riseofloganX36 - 2/5/2014, 8:53 AM
Still better than the shit worthless remake.

I'll buy that for dollar!
