Editorial Reviews

When Detroit's descent into chaos is further compounded by a police department strike and a new designer drug called Nuke, only Robocop can stop the mayhem. But in his way are an evil corporation that profits from Motor City crime and a bigger and tougher cyborg with a deadly directive: Take out Robocop. Containing the latest in gadgetry and weaponry as well as the brain of the madman who designed Nuke, this new cyborg isn't just more sophisticated than his predecessor...he's psychotic and out of control! And it's going to take everything Robocop has- maybe even his life-to save Detroit from complete and utter anarchy.

5.0 out of 5 stars And now...a word on nutrition July 6, 2005
Format:DVD
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.

The inevitable sequel is not as bad as some make out; though, compared with the original, it fails on all levels. Released with a surge of hype in 1989, this will fill only those who saw the first as a violent action picture, rather than the layered modern sci-fi it really is.

It's portrayal of a new drug culture offers nothing new, and seems pretty lazy and easy as a purpose to satirise. The villain, Cain, a sort of hippy throwback, seems a bit too much of a `superhero' villain (i.e. wacky, unconventional) to offer any gritty realism (unlike the first). Irvin Kershner, the director who gave us the most fulfilling Star Wars episode - The Empire Strikes Back, seems to lack the social and political bite that Verhoeven created with the first movie.

However, if you see the film in the right light - as a comic-book style movie, then ROBOCOP 2 is elevated somewhat. There are parts when satire does sparkle, for example, where Robocop/Murphy is `reprogrammed' and set back out onto the streets is a vicious swipe at OTT political correctness and liberalism (as the first movie took a swipe at conservatism and big business fascism).

The violence is not as brutal and realistic as the first one, but it is still far off the `children' friendly Robocop spin-offs that follow this movie.

News bulletins and faux advertisements return, but this time they feel too absurd and hokey, so instead of satirising modern western media, it simply parodies the adverts/news bulletins that where in the first film.

It isn't as bad as professional reviewers have said, so this may come across as two hours of full-on exciting action - though not much else.

The reasons for no special edition
Good job. Couldn't agree more. The story of RC2's production is more interesting than the movie itself. I'd love to find the workprint. Too bad this movie is supremely hated by those who made it, I'd love a SE too!
