If there is one sort of movie that really needs to grow up, it's the mainstream action film. Sure, there are plenty of smart action films but I think Die Hard and Schwarzenegger have had a bad hand in really PG'ing the genre. Then Will Smith, Bay and Emmerich, Twister, and the superhero movies- now everything has to be PG-something. Everything has to be in the same basic group, superhero movies sure you expect to be PG but Robocop- wow... No. If not this remake, when are we going to get an action-adventure movie based on some sort of mainstream property that actually does get grown up? That treats violence in the Verhoeven vein?
