RoboCop reboot, and I'm still primed to see it.
Sure, this isn't the RoboCop I grew up with. And, as Suzanne Cappelletti pointed out, the black suit does make him look kinda like a rejected Cylon. But this still looks like a decent bit of Hollywood escapism. Would I have been happier with an R-rated RoboCop? Yes. But this is 2014. That just doesn't happen.
The latest TV spot landed during the weekend. It reveals a little more about the plot and delivers a couple of the trademark RoboCop phrases. I think Joel Kinnaman is going to do just fine as Robo, and the supporting cast -- which includes Michael Keaton, Gary Oldman and Samuel L. Jackson -- is solid. We'll know for sure when the flick opens Feb. 12.
