The Remake Chronicles:
Two Tin Soldiers
by Adam-Troy Castro
Adam-Troy Castro expects some appalled blowback from his decision to rate the original Robocop (1987), directed by Paul Verhoevenand, and the remake (2014), directed by Jose Padilhaas, as about equivalent in terms of quality, and neither with particular enthusiasm. To which he can only reply, “Ah, well.”
