Robocop 3 1993 PG-13 CC

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 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.

Good God, is this guy really giving Robocop 3 four stars?? Yup, he is. Oh, I realize that by this point everything had gotten more cartoonish, toned down and audience friendly. It seems as though this film was made to prepare us for the cartoon and tv show.
Though the gritty, brutal violent tone of the first film is gone, I liked this in a much different way than I liked the first film.
To make way for Delta City, people are being forcefully removed from their homes by armed thugs working for OCP(which is now owned by the Japanese). An underground resistance is growing, and soon Robocop finds himself working with the underground when his longtime partner Lewis(Nancy Allen) is killed. Robocop has to go up against the OCP thugs and some cyborg ninjas. And to make matters easier, he has that pesky "Don't act against an OCP officer" directive removed!
There's nothing extremely original brought to the table here. Yeah, Robocop gets a new jetpack enabling him to fly, and a large gun attachment for his hand. Whoopee! This film does feature something I can't stand-The preteen computer genius child who knows how to hack into anything and everything. I know kids are very computer savvy these days, but it just irritates the hell out of me to see children doing stuff that a seasoned veteran hacker would never think of. Is this supposed to be cute? I hated it in Jurassic Park, and I still friggin' hate it in Robocop 3!!!
I like Robert John Burke, always have. Since we're used to Peter Weller's looks and voice, it's kinda hard to simply accept Burke. If he had played Robocop from the beginning, it would certainly be much easier to take. I think he would have done well in the original, though Weller was great.

Scriptwise, Robocop 3 is superior to the second film. Unfortunately this movie lacks what made the first two good:violence.Why did they have to make it PG-13?

Remember how blood curdlingly violent and loaded with dark humor the original Robocop was? Even it's first sequel had it's share, and that was partly what made the original Robocop so great, especially in the hands of Paul Verhoeven. With Robocop 3, Verhoeven is definitely gone, as is the violence and the dark humor, and so is original star Peter Weller, who wisely chose to skip this horrible schlockfest. Robert John Burke (Stephen King's Thinner, frequent guest roles on TV's Rescue Me and Law & Order: SVU) has the unfortunate task of playing Detroit's cyborg cop, taking on police corruption and such. There's not one redeeming factor about Robocop 3; just about everything from the action pieces, to the story, to the effects, are just plain bad. The surprisingly solid cast of supporting actors, including the returning Nancy Allen as Robocop's partner Lewis, along with CCH Pounder, Jill Hennessy, and Daniel Von Bargan, are wasted. All in all, there's a reason this was laughed at by audiences and critics when it was first released, and any fans of Robocop should just do themselves a favor and pretend this movie never happened.

*Robocop III* is not a great movie: at best, it is a decent B-Movie, a watchable but ultimately derivative action flick, with its recycled music and recycled villains (among whom the always welcome ED-209, itself copied from mecha-designs for the Japanese TV series *Robotech*). It is often silly, in that way peculiar to the US comics that aspire to «high-brow» status by having a «social[ist] message» (in this case, a criticism of «corporate America» and the «oppressive capitalist pigs» of the ultimate U.S. trust, aptly called «Omni Consumer Products».) It is often silly too in its action scenes, which tend to go for effect to the detriment of good sense, as when Robocop shoots its way through the roof of his police car when he could just as well have opened the door. As for the optical special effects of Robo's flying scenes (sic), they are rather pathetic.
This said, the movie is worth watching for the camera work alone. I am not sure how much of it was due to Fred Dekker himself, and how much to his excellent photographer, Gary B. Kibbe (John Carpenter's associate on his more recent movies), but there is in the handling of the camera a mastery that really make me regret this was Dekker's last movie and he chose instead to concentrate on screenwriting: I am convinced that given time, the man might have grown to the stature of a Brian De Palma, though his spirit is closer to John Carpenter's.
