    Went to see it on Sunday, at 12:15 pm the cinema was RAMMED. About 50/50 'adults' and, yes 12-14 year olds. Kind of sets the tone, that, because the movie is just so blah.

    It's a pretty standard, average, mostly-very-boring action movie, especially if you have even an inkling of how strong the original is. Not terrible, definitely better than Total Recall simply by not being directed by Len Twat or starring Len Twat's Wife, and all the right plot-point boxes are very loosely ticked or picked up and 'waddled' with (as opposed to run with, you see) but mostly it's just… meh.

    Feature length crowd sourced remake for your enjoyment. Brilliant.

    I didn't realise that clip you shared before was really from a whole film. I must see that, as the first clip was awesome :)

    I wish it were all like that after trying to sit through the thing I just linked.

    It's in there, but it's the only scene by those guys and puts the rest of it to shame.

    I suppose that's why they had it as the trailer. Still some other good bits from what I've watched, but I'll probably watch it in chunks. Cheers for sharing though, it's better than most TV nowadays.

    Just been to see it at IMAX. The very definition of average. It's not awful. It could have been worse. I'll never watch it again, but I don't regret having seen it.

    It's all too heavy handed and obvious. You don't need to parody glen beck. He's a parody of himself. I think everyone there would've got the point about drawing analogies with drones blowing up brown people without the point being so laboured at the start. And, oh god, it's laboured. Imagine an overly long tutorial to a game you want to enjoy. That's robocop.

    The action sequences are dull as beige ditchwater in a magnolia bucket. Luckily there aren't many of them and perhaps that's why it doesn't quite work. The supposedly emotional scenes just come across as bad comedy.

    At least they tried a different take on things. Just feels like a glimpse of something which could've been much more though.

    Conclusion: wait for it on netflix/10.

    Still don't get the "WHAH IT'S NOT 18 RATED" complaints, as if violence is the only thing that can validate a film as being "adult".

    If a film has good ideas, presents those ideas well, then it's a success. Adding buckets of blood to this film is not going to change a thing. It won't somehow make it exponentially better.
    This is spot on. Whatever's wrong with it wouldn't have been corrected by adding blood.

    It gets a thumbs up for including the line "I wouldn't buy that for a dollar" though. One or two little nods to the original in there.

    That pretty standard fight with the bots? yeah, I remember seeing that clip and thinking "well that just looks… completely standard and even a bit laboured."

    Very much like the full film, in that respect.

    Yep, pretty much all bang on. It's just so boringly obviously executed.

    I loved the line "at least you're the right colour now"

    Great to see Michael Williams in something, Omar is a cultural icon, or should be anyway.

    Hey, saw this tonight, passed the time pleasantly enough, not a classic by any means.

    He's in that little-known TV series 'Boardwalk Empire' ;)

    And that indie game, 'Battlefield 4'

    another safety ;)

    Just got round to watching this. I think @Fozzie_bear and @TarickStoneFire are bang on point, nothing I could say. It's the very definition lf average, in every single way.

    In fact unlike other average films, which get an average score on the sum of its part, though the film my have elements and scenes where it gets higher or lower, this Robocop is consistently average from beginning to end. Gets no higher, no lower, and every element, from music to screen play to set pieces, are all just.... average.

    Not bad, not good. Average.

    I can't remember a single thing about this movie. Dull.
