    Meh.. Truth is in the middle. Paul verhoeven liked over the top stuff. It did add to the revenge aspect. The Miguel ferrer (sp) death scene was not over done.. The Weller scene was a little.

    Well I must disagree. For me, seeing Weller brutally dismembered with bullets was essential to really understanding the terror of that world, being amazed by the scope of the technology which brings him back soon after, as well as feeling his trauma at recalling the event later. But hey, to each their own. At least we agree it’s a damn classic.

    The lead in that beauty is more damaging to a child's development than seeing Weller get blown apart.

    There's nothing I remember from that remake worth keeping except Kinnaman.

    Was a fan of D9 and thought Elysium was alright. But Chappie imo sucked, it's like his movie was regressing to be simpler and more dumber down for kids.

    I hope he returns to form but his name doesn't automatically generate hype for me anymore.

    I thought Chappie had for more fundamental failures than just being dumbed down and kid friendly. It's almost hard to believe the guy who made Chappie actually has written and made a good movie.

    So, at what point in the movie does Robocop get assigned to South Africa?

    Chappie was horrendous. It was a corny piece of shit with ham handed social commentary. Elysium was also garbage with retarded, "ermagahd rich people are evel!" rhetoric. And of course District 9 was okay but was about illegal immigrants.

    I fully expect some Leftist retarded agenda in Robocop form. No thanks.

    Chappie just felt like a re-telling of Pinocchio. I didn't hate it as much as you did, but didn't really need to see that same story we've seen tons of times already in films like Edward Scissorhands, Short Circuit and AI.

    Politics was pretty central to the plots of all 3 Robocop films (and that reboot we all forgot about). The original trilogy came out in the Reagan era and heavily featured themes of overpowered corporations and social decline which were both genuine concerns of the time as well as they are today. A faithful remake should include similar themes. If they dumb it down and just make it about a robot policeman then it's probably going to be utter crap.
