Just before Robocop the remake was released in 2014, a group of different film makers through what most of us Robocop fans thought, and that is that the movie did not need to be remade. So what they have done here is taken several film makers, writers, directors and producers and each made their own parody remake of Robocop in whatever way they want.
It's a clever idea, I think. They where given the freedom to each recreate a scene from the original Robocop film, and make it whatever way they wanted to. Whether it be edit the original film, re-shoot it with new actors, puppets or visual FX, or even just animate it.
There are quite a few hilarious scenes. I especially loved the introduction and end to ED-209. The attempted rape scene of the blonde girl, and a few of the commercial parodies. They are comedy gold. However, where there is good, you have to take the bad too. Some scenes are pretty poorly acted, and even the jokes are not enough to keep it from stinking. However some people do find visual eating humor, so i'm sure fans of Melissa McCarthy will probably get a kick out of the few opening scenes.
This is one of the weirdest parody films I have seen, but certainly far from the worst of them, so expect something much better than Jason Friedberg & Aaron Seltzer bombardment of parody movie fails, but at the same time, don't go in expecting too much. It does have some great scenes, but as I said, some are pretty bad too.
