Storyline

Thirteen years after the original Robocop, Delta City, considered to be "The Safest Place On Earth!", has become a futuristic city owned and operated by OCP, and RoboCop, Alex Murphy has begun to feel his age. Murphy finds himself nearly obsolete, and must deal with the fact that his now-grown son James is an OCP executive, unaware that his father is still alive. Also, Murphy's former partner, John Cable, has returned to Delta City as its new Security Commander. But slowly, new enemies arise, and Murphy and Cable begin an investigation into a mysterious villain known as the Bone Machine, unaware that they are coming dangerously close to exposing an evil group of OCP executives known as The Trust... which James Murphy is a part of. Desperate to prevent their sinister plans from being revealed, The Trust programs Murphy to kill John Cable... Written by Kevin Riley

Goofs

At the end of the second part, Meltdown, this quote is given: "The danger of the past was that men became slaves. The danger of the future is that man may become robots." The film credits it to Thoreau, which is impossible, as the word "robot" did not enter the English language until more than sixty years after Thoreau's death. This quote is actually from Erich Fromm.

Worst Robocop Outing I have ever seen.
9 August 2004 | by (North Carolina, USA) – See all my reviews

I'm a big Robocop fan. The only Robocop thing I HAVEN'T seen, was the cartoon, so I can't compare it to that one.

But in comparison to the 3 movies and, yes, even the TV series, this is the saddest Robocop has ever been.

Robocop is, of course, the ultimate superhero movie.

Robocop 2 was almost as good. It's biggest shortcoming was the lack of the classic Robocop theme music. If Basil's music could somehow be edited into this movie, I think people would be amazed at the improvement.

Robocop 3 was almost as good as Robocop 2 (seeing a trend here?). The music is back, most of the characters from the previous movies are present. Robert Burke is no Peter Weller, but he does his best, and his best is just barely good enough. Robocop 3 is a bit cheesier than the previous entries, and Robocop SHOULD NEVER FLY. However, the movie does have some moving moments, and on the whole did feel like "Robocop."

Robocop: The Series was geared towards a younger audience. The violence was toned WAY down, and some of the acting was about as cheesy as what was found in Robocop 3. Unfortunately, none of the villains measured up to any of those found in any of the movies. All were too cheesy. HOWEVER, Richard Eden did an excellent job as Robocop. Better than Robert Burke in Robocop 3. The supporting cast of good guys were also quite good on the whole, with the possible exception of the popularly despised "moppet." The creators did a pretty good job of maintaining the visual style of the movies, with the same cars, uniforms, gear, etc. I could tell they cared about what they were making. Yes, it was juvenile, but it had heart and it still felt like "Robocop." The show's opening music theme was particularly good, an expansion on Basil's original theme.

Robocop: Prime Directives was very, very sad for me. I'd been anticipating this quite a bit, and was prepared to give it a lot of slack. I'd kept up with production on their website, and had heard that the folks involved were big Robocop fans.

I was VERY disappointed.

As many have mentioned before, Page Fletcher was totally miscast. I'm sure he did his best, but he was just way too short, and did not know how to move or act as Robocop. The worst portrayal of Robocop in existence. The plot of the miniseries I found to be dull, cheesy, and clichéd. The effects were not even up to the level of what was found in the TV show. Because this story takes place so many years in the future, there are no familiar images to tie in with what has transpired before. It's almost like Robocop was dropped into some other town, where nothing is like it was. He is the only familiar image, and a sad miscast image at that. There is no sense of history. The fact that Prime Directives pretends that Robocop 2, Robocop 3, and Robocop: The Series all never happened is an insult and a cop-out (a Robocop-out?). Sure those movies and the TV series had their faults, but ALL of them were superior to Prime Directives. A sequel should only ignore what has come before under the most dire, DIRE circumstances. Say... Alien 3. And if that sequel does ignore what came before, it had better be good enough to merit that. What came before Prime Directives was not that bad, and Prime Directives was not NEARLY good enough. F-
