When the ruthless corporation that runs Motor City begins kicking families out of their homes to clear space for a profitable new real estate project, Robocop (Robert John Burke, Copland) joins forces with a renegade band of freedom fighters to save them. But Robocop must face some deadly foes, including a lethally efficient android and a dangerous gang of thugs. Robocop's latest arsenal of high-tech weaponry only somewhat evens the battlefield as this one lone superhero takes on the entire army of corporate militia in an all-out war to control Detroit!

Robocop......PG-13.......... Okay.
Michael Crane
So kids wouldn't be watching that one, so why bother to make sequels that kids can watch.
Micheal Hunt
I loved the over-the-top action and humor elements in both films.

I watched this movie on Netflix and have every intention of buying the DVD- maybe it's just because I'm a little schoolgirl for Frank Miller and the RoboCop movies, but there's a charm with 80s/90s special effects and stop-motion animation (ED-209!) that I just can't resist.

I'll try to keep this review as spoiler-free as possible.

The movie starts out in a Detroit slum where people are being forced out of their homes so a new city can be built on their land. As it turns out, OCP is behind it because they're teamed up with a megacorp in Japan who also has built their own RoboCop (who's more like a samurai than a cop). A little hacker girl gets lost in the confusion of being taken from her home and meets up with a group of (literally) underground rebels who are planning a hostile takeover of OCP. RoboCop shows up to try and sort out the mess, but gets heavily damaged by OCP's police force and he teams up with the rebels. They reprogram him so that his main three prime directives stay intact, but they delete the fourth directive (never oppose an OCP officer) and he helps them fight back against the evil corporation.

All in all, it's a fun, Saturday afternoon sci-fi movie- but nothing more. Is it RoboCop? Yes, but is it RoboCop 1 and 2? No. We're missing Peter Weller (who was off doing another one my favorite movies at the time, "Naked Lunch") and have a new guy who looks and sounds just like him playing the title character. Rip Torn is good as the OCP Chairman, and the acting is as decent as a sci-fi B-movie goes. The special effects are phenomenal for the time, including the brief use of stop-motion animation. But it is lacking the dark, edgy violence that the first two movies had. However, I'm not going to hold that against it, and frankly I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.

Check it out, but only if you're a die-hard RoboCop fan.

Robocop 3 is to me very much underrated. Now, I'm not saying it's an incredible movie, but it definitely is deserving ENOUGH of a film to be declared as a real part of the Robocop series. Fortunately the plot has actual depth and meaningful characters (if you ask me, even though the first 2 films were great, the plots weren't anything we haven't already seen a hundred times before), and goes through a few twists in between. The action is relatively bloodless (given the PG-13 rating) but there are still a good number of explosions and gunplay. The dialogue isn't bad, and most of the actors do a pretty good job throughout. I enjoyed sitting through this one, sure there were a few corny parts but the first 2 Robo's had a few of them too. Lots of old characters make a return in this one (surprisingly, I didn't think they'd see any potential in this film, on the other hand, they're all for the most part no-name actors), and it's cool to see them again, one returning character actually dies and it's not something you see coming. I especially loved the new RoboNinja that does battle with Robocop, it was very original and very cool to watch, those effects were done very well.
Now onto the downfalls. First thing is some special effects, they're second rate. Most especially is the part where Robocop puts on his jet pack and flies over a gang of punks with guns shooting at police, the flying sequences look like something out of the first Superman movie back in the late 70's. It's Pretty cheesy for a 90's film. Secondly, the whole film, though mostly entertaining, feels more like a long cartoon. Mostly because of the bloodless action, it all just has a slight cheese feel to it.

"RoboCop" (1987) was a hard action picture with an edge and a heart. It had a strong sense of everything--brains, heart, social satire, and wit, probably all thanks to Paul Verhoeven, the eccentric Dutch man responsible for "Total Recall" and "Basic Instinct."
"RoboCop 2" (1990) lost the heart but still had the violent edge. It seemed somewhat geared towards children, the plot was tired and recycled, the violence still packed a punch but lacked the seriousness and dramatic flair of the first film. In a sense, all humanity shining through the RoboCop character from the first film was gone.
"RoboCop 3" (1993) has none of the above. It has no heart, it has no brains, it has no sly social puns, and it has no hard violence. It's goofy and stupid. Over-the-top and obnoxious. Some qualites are redeemable. Most are not. It's undoubtedly the worst of the series.
Filmed in 1991 and delayed for two years due to film company Orion's pending bankruptcy, "RoboCop 3" centers around Murphy, a.k.a. RoboCop (Robert John Burke) joining forces with evicted squatters who are opposing Omni Consumer Products, the new conglomerate company running Detroit, which is kindly referred to as the homeless citizens as Opposing Capitalist Pigs.
OCP is no longer run by The Old Man (Daniel O'Herlihy), but rather The CEO (Rip Torn), a character played over-the-top for laughs that never come; he is in fact a sort of subtle summary of the entire movie. He is in cahoots with the Japanese to throw citizens of futuristic Detroit out of their homes and onto the street so that he can level their homes and build big money-making skyscrapers.
