The first trailer that was released for this was not so great but the second trailer had me interested. I just hope that this is better than the awful 'Total Recall' which came out last year. The  movie starts at 18:20 but I should be there from around 18:05.

*************************************************************

Meetup Location: I will be waiting at the main entrance to the cinema (inside Trocadero) in front of the automated ticket machines. I will also be holding up a Meetup sign. I will wait until the movie start time before going inside.

Film Description: 

Synopsis:

The satirical sci fi classic about a conflicted cyborg cop gets a spectacular 21st century makeover. The year is 2028 and crime is out of control on the streets of America. Egged on by opinionated TV pundit Pat Novak (Samuel L. Jackson), the sinister OmniCorp proposes a solution. The corporation has already deployed its hi-tech drones and fighting robots on the streets of Tehran. Now evil CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) plans to bring the technology home. Devoted husband and father of two Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) is a dedicated cop working the streets of Detroit. When he's severely injured in a car bombing, OmniCorp scientist Dr. Dennett Norton (Gary Oldman) saves his life. As RoboCop, Alex finds he has incredible new abilities. But being half-man and half-machine brings unique challenges. Brazilian director Jose Padilha has assembled a brilliant cast for his skilful, action-packed update of Paul Verhoeven's eighties dystopian masterpiece.

      Love the honest trailer! Bit harsh on Lindsay Lohan... but she probably deserves it.

    Much much better than I thought it was going to be. Does anyone know this Brazilian director's other work?

    February 12, 2014

    • Victoria J.

      I just looked him up and never heard of any of his other films. And there's only about 9 of them. Wonder how he got the gig!

      Check out Elite Squad. It's a Brazilian film about SWAT police, which according to a mate was really good.

    I thought the movie was pretty entertaining for what it was. It was also A LOT better than the Total Recall remake back in 2012. But saying that it still can't compare to the original Robocop!!

    • Dorian

      The original yes. But the ones they copied in the remake felt forced at times.
