Robocop’s New Look

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Robocop's New Look

Over the weekend, images of the new look Robocop were leaked via the ever-reliable-for-costume-leaks t’interwebs.

Quite a departure from the 1987 original, the rebooted look seems to have taken cues from modern day video games such as Crysis and Metal Gear Solid for the overall aesthetic of the suit, offering a matte-like black finish as opposed to the Rob Bottin’s shiny, silver original. It certainly is an interesting look and one that is certain to divide the fans.

The look bears a striking resemblance to video game characters from futuristic games like Crysis and Metal Gear Solid 4.

Despite boasting a very impressive cast including Gary Oldman, Jackie Earle-Haley and Michael Keaton, my expectations are quite low for the 2013 remake. The reluctance to make 18 (R-Rated) movies these days is frequent with well known properties, so I fear it will ultimately go the way of Jonathan Mostow’s horrendous Terminator 3 rather than emulating the no holds barred violence of the original.

Reported problems with the script and a few changes in director haven’t helped in raising the bar of expectation, but then the original suffered similar issues before going on to become a bonafide cult classic, so not all hope is lost.

Jose Padilha’s Robocop is slated to be released in 2013
