Peter Weller and Nancy Allen return for more crime-fighting action in the sequel to the sci-fi fantasy, "Robocop." This time, the "Future of Law Enforcement" is pitted against his newer, bigger and more powerful replacement.
With the surprise success--both critical and commercial--of Robocop, it was inevitable that a sequel would emerge (actually, two sequels). But this follow-up lacked the dyspeptically funny vision of filmmaker Paul Verhoeven and wound up skimming the surface to repeat only the most superficial elements of the original: the big, clunky hero (played by Peter Weller), the ultra-violence (minus a dark sense of humor), and the plethora of action sequences. What plot there is deals with the corporation that runs the cops and its two-pronged attempt to squeeze every dime out of the populace and the city: create a new drug crisis (with an incredibly addictive synthetic drug the corporation manufactures, spread by a charismatic drug lord) and then attack with a bigger robot, one that eliminates Robocop at the same time. Would that they had. --Marshall Fine
This Robocop stands about 8 or 9 feet tall. & was once a human being named Kane. I didn't like Kane's looks at all. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
Irvin Kirshner must be the Sam Peckinpah of science fiction directors because this is the bloodiest, most violent film I have seen in a long time. Read morePublished 5 months ago by westpart

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!
