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.

After the Splatterpunk incident, Robocop records Nikko walking up steps to go inside a church at night. The footage is played at the police station, but sunlight can be seen on the walls and front door of the church. See more »
Righty ho, what went on here then? I can't believe they made this and saw fit to release it! It lacks nearly everything the original Robocop had....especially a big killer robot!
Robocop 1 had ED-209.
Rococop 2 had the huge vicious psycho cyborg Cain.
Robocop 3 had a samurai robot that looked like a normal guy and if you managed to get a decent hit on him he would break like a dodgy little action figure! The director must have realised that this was a bad move half way through making the movie so he added a few more of these unmemorable villains to make up for the fact he didn't have a big impressive killer robot in it and failed miserably.
Sorry but that sums it all up for me. There is of course a load of other faults that i won't go in to but that was the main fault when i watched it.
A few little cool bits in this movie but the bad far outweighs the good. If this hadn't been so sucky we would have probably got treated to a Robocop 4! Damn! 3/10
