Re: ROBOCOP remake finds its director and star

I doubt this gets a sequel. Its going to fall below Die Hard 6 (or whatever the hell that last one was) with a slightly higher budget. Its doing okay overseas but its opened in just about every major market except Russia and China. $200-250 is a pretty good ballpark . . . . maybe slightly over that . . . but that's hardly enough for that kind of tentpole production budget.

As for the movie itself, I thought it was okay but lacked the humor and heart of the first one. Plus the ending of the original was great and a lot of times its the ending that leaves us our final impression. My son also complained that he wanted to see Robocop actually catching more criminals. Those allowed some of the best scenes of the original too (especially humor wise).
