[ Read Online ] Frank Miller's RoboCopAuthor Frank Miller – Avengersinfinitywarfullmovie.de

Robocop was one of the truly great bits of movie and pop culture magic from the s, and Frank Miller wanted to deliver a masterpiece with his original movie script, but Hollywood massively edited his work In full on action, the Robocop story is told as Frank Miller always intended, composed straight from the master s original writings and scripts The vast majority of Miller s insane ideas, vicious black humor and robotic mayhem never made it to the screen, but every last bit is finally unleashed in this series With sequential adaptation from Steven Grant and art by superstar Juan Jose Ryp, this sci fi epic is not to be missed Where are you going, MurphyFeels like reading RoboCop 2, butintense, of course I love the artwork Not just graphic, but better Frank Miller, the architect of Sin City did a phenomenal job Frank Miller the architect of The Dark Knight Returns did a great job Frank Miller the architect of 300 did a thoroughly enjoyable job.The architect of RoboCop had a little too much to drink.What begins as a solid homage to the original 80 s series ever so slowly devolves into a less than pleasant tribute that leaves a disappointing aftertaste at best, forgettable at worst.You don t have to be on a Frank Miller kick as I ve been ove Frank Miller, the architect of Sin City did a phenomenal job Frank Miller the architect of The Dark Knight Returns did a great job

devolves into a less than pleasant tribute that leaves a disappointing aftertaste at best, forgettable at worst.You don t have to be on a Frank Miller kick as I ve been over the holidays to notice the ever present gritty detail, panel density, and tv cuts that characterize his work Well known themes depictions push alongside a story as well known as the characters that exist within it The use of found material much like hip hop is cool, and works decently well for at least halfway through the work, until the quality degrades continually henceforth It starts off fun with many fun reduplications homages to the series of yore Then a heeping helping of feminism, presumably a Jerry Springer esque character really and tons of gut splattering violence which gets as ridiculous as it does repetitive are tossed into the blender that is Frank Miller s brain Where such original material was reformed successfully before Batman, Thermopylae etc RoboCop s offering is lazy to put it nicely, O.K at best RoboCop faces as much adversity outside his cold hard suit as he does against internal does in the OCP Which would be cool, because it harkens back to the issues of the original series but, doesn t really coalesce into a solid story here in the sequential art form Bad guy replacement is machinated as a result of thinly prepared internal political machinations Whoop de Fu % king doo.Needlesstosay RoboCop is a stupid mess It feels as though halfway through the story either the author gave up but did just enough to fulfill his contract or just pulled shit out of his ass on a whim for the remainder Not to demean the violence conflict which certainly had its high points but it to repeat myself didn t really coalesce into anything great Which is a shame because although admittedly I m not the biggest Frank Miller fan, I ve thoroughly enjoyed tons of his seminal works 300, Sin City, The Dark Knight Duology F%4K the new Sh t Hardboiled, etc What makes Frank Miller awesome in his own right andimportantly within my own experiences with his work is the successful appropriation reduplication of original found art work Frank Miller took the ever successful Batman and remade his character world into a really cool re doing for a 80 s Silver Age audience I cheered when the Joker was finally iced The same can be made of the well done take on the Battle of Thermopylae for a late 90 s audience, 300 RoboCop sadly is a sub par re doing of the titualary beloved 80 s classic Instead of taking a great proven recipe w equally respected material this dish feels over cooked in some areas, over cooked in others, and weirdly enough, remains a case of too many not enough cooks spoiling not doing their job spoiling the pot Frank Miller s attempt to show his full view of RoboCop 2 to the world Unfortunately, Frank Miller is exactly what was wrong with RoboCop 2 You see, Paul Verhoeven s RoboCop had meaning It tried to serve as a mirror to society, there was symbolism RoboCop 2 It just threw all that away and added a lot of random violence And that s exactly what this comic does There s no special meaning, no symbolism but man, there s a lot of violence It s just that a sadistic gore fest With boobs Frank Miller s attempt to show his full view of RoboCop 2 to the world Unfortunately, Frank Miller is exactly what was wrong with RoboCop 2 You see, Paul

clothes get destroyed by the explosions what and she continues to fight in her underwearAs the result, this comic may be very exciting for teens You know, there s that certain age when kids get interested in violence in movies, video games, music, etc and nudity This comic has a lot of all that A lot The only problem It doesn t have anything else No interesting story, no symbolism, no special meaning, nothing Just blood and boobs It s still pretty important reading for RoboCop fans, since it s based on Frank Miller s original RoboCop 2 screenplay, which ended up being used for both RoboCop 2 and RoboCop 3 history, baby , but all in all I must say that it s close to impossible to enjoy Since it s impossible to call it a quality reading Always loved the colors by Nimbus Studios, though Colors loved them Everything else Hated it Yeah, that was pretty bad Gratuitous T A and random violence is not what the original story was about so I don t know what this book was supposed to

am not the biggest RoboCop fan I watched the second and third film as a kid, even though they weren t really that violent, they freaked me out as a kid But like I said in my RoboCop versus the

see when his writing is poor So this book serves as a comic book adaption of Miller s rejected RoboCop 2 script, which Miller often likes to blame the toys as the reason why The book has multiple sub plots which some were altered for the film and others rejected completely, I can see why though Many of the storylines either don t have a satisfying conclusion while others weaken RoboCop as a character rather then develop him The artwork as well is atrocious, not as bad as it would be if Miller drew it, but it doesn t win you over at all The violence is over the top, but often I felt as if it was just there for the heck of it, rather then actual purpose From a story perspective, I found this to be boring, and very muddled at times RoboCop vs Terminator, I could at least see Miller had good ideas, but here its just not interesting at all I can t remember much of Robocop 2, but I heard most fans didn t like it, however I think the studio still probably made the right call with letting Miller go Miller can blame the toys as much as he wants, but rejecting his script because it was unfilmable , pretty much sums up this comic as unreadable By the end of the 1980s, Frank Miller reigned as one of the most respected creators within comics Not surprisingly given the similarities between the mediums, he soon received opportunities to work in film.Miller s big opportunity arrived

unknown Paul Verhoeven, proved wildly popular Due to a writer s strike, the studio contacted Miller, fresh from his success ofBatman The Dark Knight Returns , and hired him to write the sequel His screenplay was considered unfilmable and Miller removed from the project Only pieces survived through the numerous re writes and into the universally disliked movie The original screenplay attained an almost urban legend status In the early 2000s, Avatar Press publisher William Christensen, who owned a copy, contacted Miller about a comic adaptation Originally published as the nine issue mini series Frank Miller s Robocop from Avatar 2003 2006 , Boom Studios collects the entire story as Robocop Volume 1.Since Miller lacked the time to write or draw the comic, veteran writer Steven Grant and artist Juan Jos Ryp best known forAlan Moore s Another Suburban Romanceoversaw the project Miller and Grant successfully create an intriguing tale of despair and loss that further humanizes our hero Murphy only to tragically strip away at his essence At times beautiful, Ryp s cluttered and chaotic art degrades the tale, often making sequences unreadable While the flawed, ber violent story only shallowly touches on the important issues of law enforcement, drug use, the poor, and the societal role of corporations, it is by no means unfilmable Disappointingly, Robocop Volume 1 offers no introduction or text pieces explaining the story s interesting origins This is Frank Miller s version of Robocop 2 and partially 3 Hollywood in their infinite wisdom deemed it unworthy to produce accurately so made quite a few alterations, ending up with the Robocop 2 movie we all know today I think this was a great opportunity to see how Frank Miller s movie would have played out and was looking forward to reading when I picked it up He certainly tries to keep the satirical social commentary that made the original movie so appealing The artwork in this is This is Frank Miller s

think this was a great opportunity to see how Frank Miller s movie would have played out and was looking forward to reading when I picked it up He certainly tries to keep the satirical social

story itself has some good moments however I never felt it was a dramatic improvement over the sequel we eventually got The Robocop 2 movie had moments relating to Murphy and his wife discovering he was still alive which is again captured here but, surprisingly, doesn t feel resolved, just like the movie Also, just like the movie, Robocop doesn t seem like the same character we were left with at the end of the original movie,Robocop than Murphynor is his character advanced much I m not sure if this was an artist decision or Miller himself but it became quite ridiculous how every woman in the story was skimpily clad to the point of deflecting from the story In particular, Officer Lewis who Paul Verhoeven intentionally made as asexual as possible in the original was given every opportunity to shed as much clothing as possible through explosions, etc yet somehow her nice pretty body never suffered any permanent damage ah well If you are interested in seeing how Robocop 2 was originally intended by its script writer here it is but don t expect anything groundbreaking Being quite the fan of 1980s dystopian science fiction, as well as having a morbid curiosity about what if s of show business I eventually had to read this adaptation of comics legend Frank Miller s unfilmed script for Robocop 2 It also helped that I had diligently read the columns for Comic Book Resources done by the actual writer of the volume, one Steven Grant, about the history of the comics industry in his own experience starting in the 1970s and Grant s musings about how they reflecte Being quite the fan

experience starting in the 1970s and Grant s musings about how they reflected the broader society around it.To be honest, it s something of a half truth to say that Frank Miller s Robocop 2 script went unfilmed Rather, it looks like Orion Pictures split the script into two halves The storyline about Omni Consumer Products burdening Robocop with a bunch of new directives to make himobedient and preparing a new improved Robocop with acontrollable personality and a brain from a psychotic mass murderer became Robocop 2 The other half of the plot about OCP bringing in private mercenaries as scabs during the police strike apparently ended up as the premise of Robocop 3 , which I have yet to see as it s supposedly not very good.Frankly, reading this I get the impression that Orion were right to intervene even if the result still wasn t enough to fill Paul Verhoeven s biggest set of shoes The main problem I had with the finished film was that it threw around too many subplots and new ideas without doing much to resolve them, and this comic which is as close to Miller s original version as possible is even worse on that count The half baked subplot about Robocop trying to re unite with his estranged family who only remember him as Patrolman Alex Murphy, Deceased, gets even less time here Then there s ones I mentioned above and a bunch of new ones like OCP trying to frame Robocop for murder, which is left hanging and unresolved I guess clearing his name was what Miller hoped would be the focus for Robocop 3 Maybe it s that Frank Miller plays things a lot straighter than either Verhoeven or the resulting sequel, with less outright political satire andpolemical exaggeration for its own sake Miller s own humour here I find a step down already for what he was doing in The Dark Knight Returns The truly deranged and over the top parts aren t anywhere as memorable either, like here it s one of the mercenaries rather than the rather entertaining messianic wannabe drug lord played by Tom Noonan if you think that s an unrealistic concept for a character google Adolfo Costanzo who becomes the brain in Robocop 2, before the evil sexy psychiatrist lady overseeing the project installs her own personality in the titular combat cyborg here she s called Margaret Love but the film renamed her to Juliette Faxx Which reminds me Miller s abundant psychological issues with women which becomeandon display the longer his career proceeds is a long running joke in the comic book fan subculture, and they are a source of evenunintentional humour here which actually providelaughs than the parts that were supposed to be funny There s first the evil psychiatrist lady being evendemonized and oversexualized at the same time than in the film, then there s how Anne Lewis ends up with half her clothing torn off in pretty much every major action scene she s in.It s not a total waste There is some interesting worldbuilding about the universe of the Robocop setting withdetails about what its future society looks like, which means the setting is fleshed out , and a handful of pretty inventive action scenes that I wager were just too expensive as written to film though the climactic duel between Robocop and his supposed replacement isn t as memorable as that in the movie either which I guess is where most of the budget went.Of course it should be mentioned that I find Frank Miller s output pretty hit and miss, and I read him as much for his unique expressionistic and stark art style which elevates often mediocre storylines to something interesting in terms of visual storytelling Maybe I d have liked thisif Miller had illustrated this himself The art here is done by a bloke named Juan Jos Ryp whose drawing might be technically competent but lacks much in the way of personality, almost the polar opposite of Frank Miller s own.Now, a comic book version of William Gibson s Alien 3 that I d like to read This would of been frank millers version of RoboCop 2 and it really shows that he has no fucking clue how to write RoboCop its like he just watched all the violent scenes in the 1st film and thats how he wrote the character he basically left out the heart and soul of Alex murphy and just put in mindless violence there was a scene with his wife but it was pointless and added no depth to the character the artwork is fucking atrocious the story well i dont think you can call this a fucking story it This would of been frank millers version of RoboCop 2 and it really shows that he has no fucking clue how to write RoboCop its like he just watched all the violent scenes in the 1st film and thats how he wrote the character he basically left out the heart and soul of Alex murphy and just put in mindless violence there was a scene with his wife but it was pointless and added no depth to the character the artwork is fucking atrocious the story well i dont think you can call this a fucking story its basically people dying from gunshot wounds page after page and he hasn t slept in a week for no reason whatsoever then they put in 600 directives into him and kids spray paint on robocop that scene in the 2nd film really made me dislike the movie because it degrades the character the 2nd film was a pale imitation of the 1st film so if your a fan of the original robocop and love the movie don t read this its a waste of your time just forget it existed and watch the film in all its glory
