After a successful deployment of the Robocop Law Enforcement unit, OCP sees its goal of urban pacification come closer and closer, but as this develops, a new narcotic known as "Nuke" invades the streets led by God-delirious leader Cane. As this menace grows, it may prove to be too much for Murphy to handle. OCP tries to replicate the success of the first unit, but ends up with failed prototypes with suicidal issues... until Dr. Faxx, a scientist straying away from OCP's path, uses Cane as the new subject for the Robocop 2 project, a living God.Written by

It has Peter Weller listed as Robocop. It is correctly written as RoboCop. See more »
Another bit was cut from the UK video version when Cain and his goons escape from the drug house at the beginning. When Cain opens the car door, he finds a Chinese woman babbling incomprehensibly and shoots her. The shooting was cut, though it was shown on UK network TV, along with Duffy's death, in full.

And what's wrong with being "mean-spirited?"
This film, while not as thought-out as the original "Robocop," is every bit as entertaining. Frank Miller's original script was reportedly chunked for a leaner, meaner version, but even that doesn't stop this film from rocking.
This film has been referred to as "mean-spirited." Where's the problem? Isn't this sort of thing inherent to the action genre? Aren't bad guys supposed to be bad? And why should good guys be nothing but good? Nonsense. It's a comic book with lots of money behind it, and does its job properly.
Irvin Kershner did with this film the same thing he did with "The Empire Strikes Back" - He took the original movie and amped it up to eleven.
See both in a row, but avoid "Robocop 3" at all costs!
