The director of the original RoboCop
and Total Recall
on where the remakes went wrong...
Many of us at Den Of Geek remain really rather fond of the remake/reboot of RoboCop
, that was clearly neutered to an extent by its 12A rating, but also had some strong ideas of its own.
That said, one of the many who had sizeable problems with the new film was the director of the original, Paul Verhoeven
. In a new interview with Collider, he’s been nattering about the film, and where he felt it went wrong. He also had a word or two for the relatively recent remake of another of his films too, Total Recall
“Somehow they seem to think that the lightness of say Total Recall
is a hindrance. So they take these somewhat absurd stories and make them much too serious. I think that is a mistake.
