Customer Reviews

This is one of the best movies I've ever seen!
Alex K
There was not one time I laughed because it was so bad, it's not that kind of bad, it's just dumb and idiotic.
S. Kochel
Great action, great practical special effects, good story, sometimes fascinating (if robotics intrigue you).

Robocop 2 is probably the most under-rated and most harshly criticized sequel in history (tying with Predator 2, which came out the same year). Because of a few missing elements from the first and a slightly more cartoonish approach to the violence, the critics and public alike were not pleased and opinions and feelings toward the franchise nosedived with the just plain awful Robocop 3.

Don't con yourself out of a good movie though. Robocop 2 still has the same savage sense of humor, cynical social commentary and character pathos of the first film. It's a hyper-realistic vision of an America populated by gun-loving psychos, a democracy owned by big business and the poverty-stricken addicted to drugs dealt to them by peddlers believing themselves to be the second coming of Christ.

Far-fetched could be the typical way of describing it. Completely-over-the-top would be more appropriate. Empire Strikes Back director Irvin Kershner chucks in as much sadistic violence, deafening gunfire, endless destruction and loss of human life that the film just begs you not to take it seriously.

Some of the blame was placed on writer Frank Miller for the film being more cartoonish than the original. I don't think this is very fair. I read Miller's original script when I was in high school and it is rather different and, dare I say, unfilmable. Robocop 2 himself was not Nuke Lord Caine, the psychotic hippie with delusions of Godhood. He was called Kong, a psychotic cop who pretty much killed everybody he came across. Sgt. Reed and the Old Man died and there wasn't much humor. Screenwriter Walon Green was hired to doctor the script and much of what appears on screen is actually his work.

Robocop 2 is one of those rare sequels that is just as good, if not better than the original. Now, I know that a lot of folks out there just might, and do disagree, but, still there's no denying that this movie Rocks!

The great Peter Weller returns once again to portray Robocop, Detroit's heroic cybernetic law enforcer of the future who never goes on strike, and always upholds the law.

A new addictive drug called Nuke is making waves on the streets of old Detroit and is causing all kinds of problems for it's citizens. On top of that, the Detroit Police Force, which is contracted out to the greedy and unethical corporation known as OCP [Omni Consumer Products], are on strike as well. Only a bare few brave police officers and Robocop dare to even go out and face the wild and out-of-control anarchy that is going on in the city streets.

The creator and seller of the drug Nuke, is a crazed, megalomaniacal sociopath named Cain who has delusions of grandeur and believes himself to be a saviour to all the poor souls of Detroit, and he also believes that his drug Nuke is the key to paradise. But his drug is nothing more than a cheap addictive substance that even he himself becomes strung out and dependent Upon. It's up to Robocop to try and save the day.

OCP is about to forclose on it's business dealings with old Detroit, and starts to confiscate property in the hopes of capitalizing on it's investments there and then rebuild it into the new Delta City and reap all that it can from it's dirty dealings. The resulting rise in violence on the streets creates the need for more Robocops and so phase 2 of the OCP Robocop project goes into production, only to meet certain failure.

Format: DVD
In contrast to many other reviewers, I happen to think R2 has an astonishingly inventive script brimming with daring, dark satire. The satire is so dark however, that it challenges a viewer not to be merely "entertained", but enter into a dialogue with the film. I contend that R2 is in the tradition of such apocpalyptic satirical art as CLOCKWORK ORANGE and NAKED LUNCH which serve to warn humankind just where in hell its crazed heart may lead.
Unlike most mainstream Hollywood films, R2 is deeply critical of humanity and its resulting civilization -- starting with the harsh market-driven economy of winners and losers (it is no coincidence that both the drug trade and OCP bow to the same economic models). By depicting a world of such dire human/social affliction coupled with all the high-tech tools required to increase its profit (and anguish), R2 challenges the viewer to separate from this "humanity". Like the best satire, R2 exists to crack our rose-colored glasses, bloody our noses, and tell us what's wrong, so there is precious little "good" to root for in either old or new Detroit. What's at stake in R2 is simply keeping the flood of evil from drowning everything all at once.
