I don’t think the trailer for Robocop comes even close to doing the film any justice at all. I mean, Robocop is one of the greatest action movies of all time, and it’s also wickedly hilarious and incredibly bloody. Just about none of that is on display here.
What is on display is lots of explosions! It’s funny because explosions are not what first comes to mind when I think of Robocop. Not on display is too much voice over - it seems like most of the concept is conveyed in clips, although the story of Murphy seems to be lost.
