So it looks like there a movie involving robots for fighting that will be coming out next year.

You can check out the trailer here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNhD9YWCkM8

When I saw the trailer, I was slightly disappointed because this could have been OMF Sad

I agree that it could've very well been OMF, but from what I've seen, most of the time movies based on games... suck...
I wouldn't want that sort of injustice for OMF

Yikes, scary.

The movie itself doesn't look all that tempting though, but I guess I'll watch it sometime just to see how similar it is to OMF.

Heh, thats a rather lame reason for me to go watch a movie, even more so since its the most compelling reason I've had ot watch a movie in a couple of years now...

The robots are too small though. And the pilot isn't inside. It is kinda OMF like though. haha.

After reading the description & plot summary and looking at the stills, I've decided to predict that this movie will flop.

The story is old and rehashed, the element of danger necessary with fighting robots isn't there, and boxing simply doesn't have the mass appeal to go over well.

It's nothing like OMF. OMF has bigger robots, higher stakes, more danger, and a much larger base to build a storyline to. 90 minutes of furious HAR brutality over the streets of a future big city with lots of collateral damage and memorable side characters trying to escape a "don't let the 90 foot tall robots out of the financial district" quarantine would make a wonderful mindless action flick. Toss in the tension of an impending strategic weapon strike or already deployed bio-weapon (As well as an in-depth FEAR style plot progression as to why) and we've got box office gold in the US.

I just saw a preview for this movie last week and I thought it looked like an OMF movie that had enough differences to not be an OMF movie.

If you want giant robots thrashing the financial district, that movie is called "Transformers". Smile

Also, from what I remember about the story for OMF2097, the pilots weren't physically "in" the robots - they were more or less plugged in Matrix-style.

That means they haven't scrapped the movie since I posted my prediction 6 months ago. How delightful.

HARs were previously exoskeletons that moved with the movements of the pilot, like the alien armor in District 9 or guymelefs in Escaflowne. An accident with one of these kinds of HARs is the reason Cossette is in a wheelchair.

Correction, the exosceleton suits where from a game called "Arena", and had nothing really to do with HAR's at all.

In-fact, HAR stands for Human Assisted Robots (or something like that, from memory), and are a designation for robots using the mental link system to control, as opposed to wiring a human inside the mecha.

And there is only one Trans Formers movie, and it is from 1986.

Hm. Looks a bit like OMF, if only because robots fighting is a spectator sport apparently.

Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong.

(I actually had to look that up to write it correctly. Sad Didn't want to use a lame "Till all are one" or "Light our darkest hour". They probably were used in the new movies anyway...)

I watched Real Steel.
It was okay, but it left me hankering for a REAL OMF Movie... Who has that script now?! :p

I'm up for reviving interest here, how can we start a movement?! ePetition?!
