After being offline for five years, RoboCop is reactivated in 2030 to help a federal agency called Alpha Division fight a high tech terrorist organization known as DARC, short for Directorate for Anarchy, Revenge, and Chaos.

The first film was stunning. The second was a joke and despite the story being better, the third was disappointing.

I am saddened to see that even good films are turned into money spinners after a while.
