Just before Robocop the remake was released in 2014, a group of different film makers through what most of us Robocop fans thought, and that is that the movie did not need to be remade. So what they have done here is taken several film makers, writers, directors and producers and each made their own parody remake of Robocop in whatever way they want.
It's a clever idea, I think. They where given the freedom to each recreate a scene from the original Robocop film, and make it whatever way they wanted to. Whether it be edit the original film, re-shoot it with new actors, puppets or visual FX, or even just animate it.
There are quite a few hilarious scenes. I especially loved the introduction and end to ED-209. The attempted rape scene of the blonde girl, and a few of the commercial parodies. They are comedy gold. However, where there is good, you have to take the bad too. Some scenes are pretty poorly acted, and even the jokes are not enough to keep it from stinking. However some people do find visual eating humor, so i'm sure fans of Melissa McCarthy will probably get a kick out of the few opening scenes.
This is one of the weirdest parody films I have seen, but certainly far from the worst of them, so expect something much better than Jason Friedberg & Aaron Seltzer bombardment of parody movie fails, but at the same time, don't go in expecting too much. It does have some great scenes, but as I said, some are pretty bad too.
this was absolutely amazing in every way!!! obviously done by die hard fans who have watched the film 1000 times at least like me. spot on!!! everyone did a fantastic job!!! i already know i love this remake more than that "other one" and i haven't even bothered to watch that. seriously the attention to detail on the dialog and the performances are what really makes this work well. so if you are a fan of the original then please by all means do yourself a favor and watch this now!i want to support these film makers because i think what they are doing here is great it took a horrible thing ("robocop" 2014) and turned it into something worthwhile! it actually gives remakes a purpose. as long as there are more "our -insert title here- remakes" this was hilarious!!! A+++ i urge everyone to watch this along with their previous effort "our footloose remake" which is equally hilarious!!! it is free to watch on vimeo, it's posted by the film makers so its totally legit.
