Woooah this was pretty much flawless, it had me chuckling pretty much the whole way through. Aesthically really well done its got me thinking about a faux Robocop Movie to TV edit now. And as for that coke advert pure gold! Also loved the insertion of Riggs and Murtaugh this really sets a standard from the small amount of consections shorts I've seen so far. Oh and absolute classic Daniel Day Lewis as Abraham Lincoln!!!
A great concept and it works sensationally better as a tv short. The cameos are well inserted (especially the Lethal Weapon portion) and the ad break was inspired and perfectly in-keeping with the tone of the subject matter. Infinitely better than Robocop: The Actual Series.
Fun! I'm not much of a fan of Robocop 2. To my surprise, I wound up enjoying it as
a condensed TV episode, much more than as a feature film. The use of multiple
sources, music, and sound effects really do a great job of capturing the feeling the
editor was going for. I would have liked to have heard the Animated Series’
narration in place of the custom one recorded for this edit, and maybe some bits and
pieces from the infamous edited for TV versions of the first film. Regardless, this
is an amusing and entertaining edit. I'd like to see more episodes in the future!
And indeed, that's what this edit's about. I think. Though technology changes, and
society changes along with it, some patterns will always be there. The pursuit of
law-breaking dangers to society, to serve, protect, and uphold - that won't change.
There will just probably be a lot more cyborgs.
