In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy - a loving husband, father and good cop - is critically injured in the line of duty, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.
The mega corporation Omni Consumer Products is still bent on creating their pet project, Delta City, to replace the rotting city of Detroit. Unfortunately, the inhabitants of the area have no intention of abandoning their homes simply for desires of the company. To this end, OCP have decided to force them to leave by employing a ruthless mercenary army to attack and harass them. An underground resistance begins and in this fight, Robocop must decide where his loyalties lie. Written by

Many years after the release of the movie, director Fred Dekker voiced his opinion about the finished product. While he maintained that he had a great time making it and was still pleased with the result, he admitted that there were inherent problems with the film as well as limitations in its production. He felt that one of those problem was that Murphy/RoboCop's personal journey had already been wrapped up in the first movie, leaving little more for him to do than fight bad guys in the sequels. His biggest regret was that he had toned down the action, cynicism and violence too much at the request of the studio, who wanted to direct the movie at a younger audience (since they had already produced the animated series RoboCop (1988)). Also, the basic premise of RoboCop siding with homeless people against an evil company did not suit the political climate at the time. Lastly, he had intended to put in more Hong Kong-style action through the Otomo character (being a big fan of that genre), but he lacked the budget to hire an Asian stunt team that could pull it off.

In the original "RoboCop," a multitude of picketing police officers could hardly lift the cyborg, but here three adult rebels and a child were able to carry him through the sewers. See more »
the first Robocop was amazing, Robocop 2 was a worthy sequel. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED!? half the cast was comedians, the acting was god awful, the script was stupid. I mean how do you go from solid R rated flicks to a PG 13? Now this film shows the fall of OCP, and many people jumping out of windows or shooting themselves. Ironically that's what anyone viewing this film would want to do. Which is why they don't have theatres on the top of buildings.
this film should be erased from history, and maybe if they make another robocop call it robocop 3 again, to help people forget about this one.
