In the scene where Murphy and Lewis attempt to trick Antoine Vallon into believing that they are buying weapons, he gets a phone call from the two corrupt cops to inform him of their true identity, he then orders his men to kill them both without any moral issues and the gunfight ensues. Yet in a scene a few minutes later, where the two corrupt cops meet with Vallon to discuss killing the two of them at the hospital, he is suddenly fearful of killing police officers, "Kill a cop, look over my shoulder the rest of my life."

I really don't understand all the hate this movie gets. Yeah, I get it, it's a reboot of a perfectly good 80s movie that nobody really wanted, but it's a really good one! I expected a mindless Micheal Bayian action movie and what I got was a really smart, interesting and entertaining look at trans-humanism, the freedom of choice, politics and recklessness in corporate leaders.
This movie really dives into the question of how a person could live his day to day live with almost all of his body amputated and stuck inside of a machine. So when people complain about the uncomfortable scenes between Murphy and his wife, I can only imagine they mean what happened after his transformation, and that felt exactly the way it was supposed to!
So yes, the original is way more graphic and still holds up to this day as a gruesome action flick, but this one is smart and interesting and really is a good movie in it's own right.
And by no means is it as bad as people say it is!
