^ Meh. Iím sure Robocop would have looked legit with Blomkamp at the helm but Iíve never been blown away with his directing abilities. District 9 was decent but Chappie is one of my most hated movies in years!

We also donít need a Robocop who speaks with a South African accent.

I'm not overly upset either, for the same reasons as you. It would be nice if the project picks up someone else who's interested in the original property and imagery.

Absolutely agree. In that way it should be very welcomed. Aways beeen an everlasting Robocop (the 1987 orignal) fan.

I actually kinda liked CHAPPiE when I saw it. Havenít seen it since I went to it in the theater though. District 9 I like less with repeat viewings. Iím not too upset over Blomkamp being off this film really. This movie in general is one that I can take or leave. The original is a classic and I like the second as well. Iíd see a new one but Iím not desperately awaiting it.

Make it special like the original or fuck off. The last Robocop is what you get when the filmmakers canít do anything courageous or adventurous. Not sure if it was a choice, or if they are incapable of doing anything special. But it is what it is.

Ditto.
When the ED-209 clone hit the screen, I immediately hit REJECT and swore so loud the neighbors heard.
