It looks like someone else got their hands on the script for Jose Padilha's Robocop reboot. This time around we have a much more positive reaction to the script than the last thing we heard. Before we get into it you need to know that there are more details that contain major heavy Spoilers. I actually like this description of the story, it gives us a better sense of what's in store for us, and this sounds more like Padilha's style.
These latest details come from SHH user, Solidus, who says the movie is very similar to Neill Blomkamp's awesome sci-fi movie District 9. Robocop will start off being more human, but as time goes on he slowly begins to lose that humanity and ends up becoming more of a machine. The new details reveal the technology that will be built into Robocop, a clearer explanation of the whole transformer element, and then some intense story details.
Details on Robocop's technology:
He moves quick. At first as Robo 1.0 he is somewhat slow. But he does move fast, he can run up to 30MPH and catch bad guys pretty quick.
Other things, that I love is just the whole integration of wi-fi and how he is connected to everything. This is truly Robocop remade for the modern world, not the 80's.
I have said before I love the virtual evidence world he creates and re-creates a crime as it happens. I love how he is connected to every camera in the city and they are everywhere.
There is also a motorcycle that is made specifically for him, it sounds pretty cool, it connects to him in a way. So he mainly drives his Cruiser motorcycle thing.
Update on the Transformer aspect of Robocop:
And people should not worry about the "Transformers" aspect, all that changes is the appearance of the texture of his armor and helmet, nothing more. He has a visor but it is more see through.
Yea the armor just changes to different textures/slight bulkiness. But it makes it sound like in the script in many scenes that it transforms very very quickly. No body changing or arms becoming something else kind of stuff.
He starts out more human, but OCP starts to mess with him and take away his emotions and he becomes very cold like the Robocop we know.
Crazy big spoiler story details:
The story does resolve around that they need Murphy he is the perfect candidate but they know he won't agree to it. So they hire bad guys to pretty much knock him out and "surgically" blow him away so they can get program under way. And also make Murphy's wife think that it is the only way to save Alex is to do this program and he will still be the man she loves. But lets say the company really back stabs that and then some. They just want a cold robot that does what it's told but give the appearance to the press and public that he can have emotions. They set up the whole family wanting him back thing to give it a good clean image. But in reality the company is being horrible about it.
One emotional part that turns him more to a machine (which is what the company and Norton wanted) was when they showed Murphy what was left of "him" they strip all his mechanical stuff and it is just some of his organs part of his head and a part of his brain. A pretty sad scene, especially when they make Murphy's wife look at it, to get her to run away from wanting to still be with Alex.
Holy crap! I don't know about you, but that sounds incredibly intense. This movie might end up being a lot better than what we previously thought! I'm actually kind of looking forward to it now. What do you think about these newly revealed details?
