RoboCop 2014 trailer is here… and it is very disappointing [Video]

We’ve long known of the RoboCop movie reboot, and finally there’s an official trailer giving us a glimpse of what to expect.

First thing you’ll notice is how much better the cast is compared to the original 90s film. Furthermore, the voice of RoboCop is quite similar between the two, which is a nice little touch for those who enjoy complaining about the little details.

When it comes to the suit, there aren’t many changes, however, one of RoboCop’s wrist is pure flesh and bone. This is likely to allow him to interact with humans a lot better as it would feel weird for some important guy in an expensive suit shaking a metal hand.

Now, with the basic stuff intact, one would believe this trailer is a runaway success. That’s not the case really in our opinion, for the whole thing left us wondering what the hell is going on and what is the general idea behind almost every scene shown. At one point all I could hear was the word “system,” and how much Mr. RoboCop human emotions are allowing him to override it.

In addition, the trailer failed to introduce the villain, you know, that one powerful person who despises the new cop in town.

Check out the RoboCop 2014 trailer before:

Make no mistake, this is not a hate on the movie itself, this is a hate on the trailer and how much we want more than what they gave us. I’m not impressed one bit, so they better come with all guns blazing with the second trailer or be gone to the bottomless pit of Vamien hate.

    Those visuals are AWFUL!!!! And you do realise it’s a PG13?! Yes, that ultra-violent film has been made into a kids film! It’s now all about emotions and feelings! For anyone who thinks this looks in anyway good just go back and watch the original, it’s amazing and this is just a soulless piece of garbage watered down for kids!

    [@Enrique Manalang] I have to disagree with you on this one. I’m not seeing the impressive visuals tbh, the only thing I like is the voice and suit, well, some aspects. They went as far as changing the color of the suit to emo black, why? My childhood is burning from the inside out and my hate is escalating.

    [@Enrique Manalang] Shhhh! :-o

    I agree with you but, fearing the Bottomless Pit, decided to keep my opinion to myself. You should do the same.

    Sorry Vamien, I thought the trailer was awesome. Great actors, slick visuals and an awesome-looking suit. That and I really don’t wanna know every single story detail about the movie before it comes out.
