[Getting out of Kanemitsu's limo]
Uh, Kanemitsu-San, maybe we got started off on the wrong foot. How about we improve this area. Put fast food chains, better houses, strip malls, huh?

What did he say?
He says you're fired.

Firstly if you don't like Robocop at all, then obviously leave this alone, if you've never seen Robocop, watch the first film, then come back and read the rest of this.
Robocop started out as a hard ass cyborg, you simply wouldn't mess with (He even helped spawn a video game, in which he fought the Terminator, you've got to be Tough to be mentioned in the same breath as a Terminator - you get the point, he was hard) and, he was portrayed by Peter Weller, who did a good job.
In number 2, Peter Weller was still there and Robocop was still fun and still tough, even if it wasn't a great movie.
However, now on to the third film, take my advice and miss it, even for Robocop fans, there little here to enjoy, and this is why.
Robert Burke, has replaced Peter Weller as Robocop, and i not knocking him as an actor (I Don't know much of his work), but he isn't Robocop, Period. Also Robocop is now as weak as a kitten, and Oh yes, and he can fly now too, Yawn!
This movie simply insults the Robocop name, in every way, i can't think of a single reason to watch this film, it's another case of no sequels necessary (although Robocop 2 - wasn't all bad)
