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

Because RoboCop 2 (1990) had performed much less admirably at the box office than RoboCop (1987), the budget for the third installment was scaled down significantly. The production could not afford many new props, so the makers were told to recycle as much of the RoboCop suits from the previous film as possible. Since Peter Weller would not be reprising his role as Murphy, an actor had to be cast who could fit in the already-made suits. The casting agency therefore received "ridiculously precise" body measurements that the prospective actor had to meet. Two actors were found, and Robert John Burke was cast because he had the best fit, and because he had had mime training, which would help him perform the robotic moves. See more »

Robocop 3 is an 'insult' to the classic original. First of all, the character of Robocop is played by someone else and the result is just plain embarrassing. The film is very soft on violence, which was a poor decision on the director's part because the original film is notorious for its excessiveness and loved by fans. A PG-RATED Robocop is just a desperate attempt to cash in on the wider audience, which proves that the film was made by profiteers, rather than film-makers. This film is so bad, it's literally dripping with cheese. Robocop flying is an unintentional funny moment in the film and the part where Robocop drives a car off a bridge and lands on all four wheels, is just plain ridiculous. This film was the nail in the Robocop franchise's coffin. I honestly wish that it had never been made.
