Tch, stop hatin. This movie looks awesome, quit worrying about the finer details. This is far more logical anyway, how the hell would you let a couple of officers walk into a criminal hideout with such trashy equipment and get shot up worse than a paper target at a shooting range, then turn him into a nigh invincible walking death machine? At least the carbomb makes sense in terms of legitimate fucking over to super battle cyborg.
Yeah, maybe the death in the first one was a bit over the top, but my point was that you actually felt
something as a result of it. It leaves a lasting impression for the rest of the movie. Yeah, near-invincible on the outside, but torn the fuck up on the inside. The flashbacks he had of being brutally murdered, fueled his anger and despair. He was fucking angry at those pieces of shit.
Now, thanks to modern lazy writing, it's as easy as some unknown chubby short mobster named Big Tony rigging Murphy's car, and now Murphy just needs to turn a key, and boom - wakes up as Robocop. Bet they really racked their brains over that one. Makes more sense, but there's nothing behind
I see your point, but it just seems like they are taking the easy way out (or IN, as the case may be). Who knows, though? Maybe they have another means of fueling Murphy's desire for revenge (or whatever) in this new one, which I assume is the case, as this preview speaks of him going against protocol.
