OMG! RoboCop Is Back In Detroit! You Gotta See It For Yourself!

RoboCop is in Detroit! | By Sherry Trautman | Traveling Michigan

We were just minding our own business while exploring downtown Detroit when BAM!!  Robocop makes his presence known! 

He's so badass he demands a larger-than-life full-color mural of his badassery on a red brick wall in downtown Detroit!  Just to remind us he's always there...always watching.

The Story:  We were driving around Detroit enjoying the awesome sights, energy and history of this great city.  As we continued exploring along Grand Boulevard, we discovered this freakin' cool mural of RoboCop. 

It so colorful, so full of life and so iconic we just had to capture it!!  The snow was up to my knees and we were worried we would get the truck stuck as this cool wall was in an unplowed lot but I sure as heck was gonna get this shot!

So Let's Discuss...

Are you a fan of the original RoboCop from 1987 or the remake from 2014?  What are your thoughts?

We recently decided to host a rousing movie night to watch the 2014 remake of RoboCop. We were super excited to watch the movie after finding this incredible mural. 

And I have to say, the movie was pretty darn entertaining! Others watching it with us agreed the original was a little more cheesy and I'd have to agree. 

What do you think?  Which movie wins-the original or the remake?  Comment below.
