Broadsheet Trailer Park: Robocop



What you may need to know:

1. It’s possibly the most superfluous remake since that shot-for-shot Psycho.

2. That said, it’s not half bad.

3. Who’s Robocop? Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman, from the US version of The Killing. He nearly got the Mad Max gig, but Tom Hardy bagged that one.

4. Sam Jackson, Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton? We’re amazed there’s any scenery left. NB: Michael Keaton needs to work more.

5. No, we don’t get a Peter Weller cameo.

6. Actually, just watch the original again. It’s a pulp masterpiece.

7. Broadsheet Prognosis: Fair Cop
