'RoboCop' 2014: Differences Between the Remake and the Original

RoboCop 1987 Acid Toxic Waste Scene

1987: Like most Paul Verhoeven films, RoboCop carried an R Rating with an emphasis on graphic violence - featuring everything from dismemberment, a toxic waste bath, bodies torn about by gunfire, a punctured jugular, and one especially unlucky attempted rapist that Alex Murphy intentionally shoots in the groin.

2014: For the reboot, Padilha dialed-back the violence - relying on implied bodily harm to secure a PG-13 rating. Plenty of drug lords and murderers are still shot, Padilha simply opted to avoid showing the subsequent blood and guts. In addition, the updated RoboCop model carries more than one weapon, including a Beretta Pistol that fires XREP taser cartridges - meaning that, in certain situations, he can take down offenders without killing them.
