Peter Weller and Patricia Charbonneau had previously co-starred in the film Shakedown (1988), where they both played lawyers and lovers. They are reunited in this film as the titular character and a technician. In the novelization by Ed Naha, the name of Charbonneau's character was Linda Garcia; and in the film, 'Garcia' is visible on her name-tag. See more »
When RoboCop 2 extends his arm to hit RoboCop, it is obvious the extension is a forced perspective trick as the arm becomes at least four times longer to get out of frame. RoboCop is subsequently knocked into a wall that previously did not exist, as Robo was standing in front of an open hall. See more »

Robocop 2 is a very amusing movie that is often times unfairly criticized. It is obviously not as good as the first film, but its still a darn good sequel. This movie, just like the first, always gets made fun of and I can't see why. I think these movies are just so entertaining. Here's my two cents.
I am a huge fan of these Sci-Fi/Action movies, and Robocop is definitely one of the coolest in the genre. The first film is a classic, but most people don't seem too fond of it's sequel. Robocop 2 is dark, cruel, and gruesome, but it never misses it's chance to fit in a joke. The humor in this movie is just as good as the first's, if not better. The acting is a little poor at times, but you can't expect too much out of a film like this. Robocop 2's story is less diverting, but the special effects are superior to the first. This movie has a much better climax than the original, and the final moments of violence at the ending have some of the best special effects I have ever seen(without the use of cgi)in a movie.
My problem is that people always accuse films like this of not being realistic enough. What should you expect from a title like 'Robocop 2"? People need to just sit back and suspend disbelief for a movie like this. The Robocop movies are pure bloody fun, that's all. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes violent 'machine vs. machine' warfare, and being a fan of the first movie couldn't hurt either.
