The remake, not the original. The original is a bloody, R-rated fun. This movie is... tedious, boring and it completely misses the mark. No wonder it was such a flop in the cinema. TPTB turned it into some human drama about family and man vs. machine and whatnot, and there was a lot of politicking and scheming... uh.

And Murphy. Remember Peter Weller's amazing acting, his robotic movements? You actually believed that he was a machine. Joel Kinnaman was... not as good. Actually, he was really lame here. At no point did I feel like his Murphy was a robot. Not even remotely. He simply looked like a guy in a black robotic suit. He lacked Weller's physicality.

I don't mind remakes. But here, I do have to ask: WHY?
