'' this version is a much better acting piece''
That's a very bold statement from Kinnaman considering how outstanding Peter Weller is in the original. He certainly manages to convey Murphy's humanity before and after the transformation - and especially when the helmet comes off later in the movie. Offset that against his portrayal of Robocop as a dilligent yet ruthless deliverer of justice, and I'd say Kinnaman is going to have to move heaven and earth to top Weller.
Nothing wrong with the support in Verhoeven's film either. Nancy Allen, Miguel Ferrer, Ronny Cox, and especially Kurtwood Smith are all memorable. They might not be unimaginatively safe big names, but they were all superbly cast. Especially considering Ronny Cox had never played a villain before. I mean, how nasty is Dick Jones in that flick?
Is Kinnaman saying this is going to be less of an ultra-violent comic book satire, and more of an arty brooding spiritual exploration of humanity versus technology? I hope not because that's a sure fire way to unwhet my appetite.

Reason: the English language sucks and is really just a rip off of other languages - doesn't justify my woeful spelling though
