Spoilers! More Info From Leaked ROBOCOP Script

<font color=red>Spoilers!</font> More Info From Leaked ROBOCOP Script

The script to Jose Padilha's Robocop remake has found it's way online, and into the hands of someone with a much more positive view of the material. You are warned, there are lots of spoilers.



The Robocop script has leaked online, and opinions seem to be mostly positive even though just last month HitFix's Drew McWeeny gave it a thorough bashing. One of the opinions that was most insightful and provides the most detail comes from SHH's Solidus.

Drew said the satire was missing, but Solidus had a completely different view, calling it "very satirical." It was actually a feature in the script that he was "most impressed" with. He felt as though this Robocop had more similarities with Neill Blomkamp's sleeper hit, District 9. This Robocop will actually start off human and slowly begin to lose his humanity, becoming a cold machine. That would make Robo very much like District 9's Wikus (Sharlto Copley), as he too slowly transformed but in that film it was into an alien creature, a Prawn.


ROBOCOP'S UPDATED 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.

ROBOCOP IS A TRANSFORMER?
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.


MASSIVE SPOILERS BELOW!
Highlight text below this line.

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.

...Spoilers End...
