Get off Verhoven's ****! The originals, while I loved them too, are terrible films. They were filled with unforgivably bad acting, excessive violence and as much pointless action as any modern cash-grab. They would have been better had they NOT been satire. When I think back to the originals, I don't think "that was a great satire film" I think, that was a fun action movie I liked as a kid that I am now embarrassed to be caught watching now.
The new movie chooses not to make a bad joke out of the story of a man struggling to maintain/reclaim his humanity after being turned into a cyborg cop by a greedy corporation and still manages to be an awesome but more intelligent action movie.
