The Real Story Behind The ‘Monuments Men’ Goes Far Deeper Than The Blockbuster Movie

When you think "Monuments Men," we wouldn't be surprised if the first thing that comes to mind is George Clooney looking predictably suave in a military uniform. Although the upcoming blockbuster movie is filled with the usual twists and turns of such a cinematic dramatization, the true story of the Monuments Men -- the soldiers who risked their lives to save the artworks that founded Western civilization -- is far more complex.

The existential battle that rages through “RoboCop,” a nicely cast, respectable remake of the wittily corrosive 1987 Paul Verhoeven film, is less the struggle between man and machine than between the original’s pop nihilism and the bottom-line commercialism driving this new vehicle. Once again, an ordinary man, a Detroit cop, Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman), is transformed by corporate interests into a cyborg after being critically wounded in the line of duty. And, as before, the reanimated creature walks and talks like a latter-day Frankenstein’s monster, his recognizably human parts encased in an artificial carapace, although this version also mixes in…
