The robots acting was better than the humans.. The robots dialogue (none) was better than the verbage by the main actors.... get my point? they tried to up one on an Arnnny movie and failed... We left half way through the movie....

I think this was one of the best remakes I've seen in a long time. Best summer movie I've seen so far. Lost of action, lost of great performances! Nuff'said!

1990 screenplay, 1990 Arnold, Rob Bottin mutant effects, and 2012 Patrick Tatopoulos visual effects together might be awesome. This year's take on Philip K. ****'s short story, We Can Remember It For You Wholesale, replaces Mars with an extremely hard-to-believe, post-apocalypic (or alternate universe), Kurt Wimmer Earth where Britain is once again a colonial power that drilled the mother of all Chunnels.
Director Len Wiseman does an excellent job of making his wife looks great. Kate Beckinsale's character is worthy of Sharon Stone's 1990 role, which is impressive given that Stone was younger at the time. There are plenty of nods to Paul Verhoeven's R-rated version. (One wonders what the RoboCop crew would do with Underworld technology.) It'll be cool if Wiseman has an edgier, unrated director's cut in store for the Blu-ray...

It was a good movie not great but good. I cant say i really want to see it again but im glad i saw it the first time. personally i liked it better then the first one and for those who believe that statement is akin to blasphemy please realize that while the old one was great for its time if that version had been released today it would have been a laughing stock. the action and story is good but it seemed to be missing something. still a good movie though

Do yourself a favor - spend $2 and rent the original 1990 flick with Arnold, Sharon Stone, Rachel Ticotin, Michael Ironside, and Ronny Cox. Each of the 1990 actors does a better job than their 2012 equivalent, although I have to admit that Kate Beckinsale does make a better agent than Sharon Stone (but Sharon was so hot in those days it's hard to criticize her). But the problem is that all the suspence is gone, which is a problem that faces any remake. In addition, for whatever reason, the 2012 version seems far less futuristuic than the 1990 version, and the special effects they do have are not so special. For the $138,000,000 they spent, it all seems wasted.
There are a few twists and turns in an attempt to "update" the storyline and keep us guessing, but generally speaking they are unsuccessful.
