This has train wreck written all over it. I love Robocop. I don't think I'll watch this.

Don't be so quick to judge. The show Pennyworth, which is about Batman's butler before he was a butler is one of the best DC show's out there. I can't wait for season 2.

Has anyone seen the X rated version of Robocop? It's extra bloody and if they kept that gore, the MPAA would've given the movie an X rating. I'm sure it's now called Unrated or something not as cool as X.

I used to have it on dvd, it's that one that said it would've been X rated. The unrated version on blu-ray doesn't mention that on the back of the case but it is the same one. It just says unrated.

If it leads to more and GOOD Robocop movies then I'm fine with it. Robocop 3 sucked, the remake wasn't good and I haven't seen the other 3 they made(I think they made 3 others).
I saw that they actually made 4 others and I also learned that they had a tv show.

I'll reserve judgment:
If the writers have the same macabre sense of humour that the original film had, it could be worthwhile. For me, that's what makes the original film so memorable in the first place. For all its "action and gore", it's a very cerebral film, smacking of Frankenstein (the novel), and chock full of dark humour. If they double down on the action/violence aspect, then it likely will be entirely forgettable, but if they lean on the cerebral and dark humour angles, it could be a real gem.
