Then why call it Robocop?
Besides, the whole POINT with the original (Robocop) WAS the political satire.

To me this is the same league as the remake of Total Recall or Footloose for that matter: A remake nobody asked for, that doesn't do anythnig good, and really should not have been made.

Why are there so many remakes of 80ies movies right now?

The new Terror on Elm Street sucked.
They are casting a new Point Break movie??? Seriously??? Who on EARTH wanted a remake of that?

But hey, let's remake everything. How about a Darker And Edgier 16 Candles? When Harry Met Sally really begs for a remake, doesn't it?

Sorry if I come off as an old grumpy guy, but I AM an old grumpy guy.
