Cliff De Young,
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 »
When Robocop uses the elevator in the hotel full of Rehabs, he gets off on the same floor he went in. The elevator doesn't go anywhere. See more »
Sergeant. We're taking Cadillac Heights. I'll need fifty of your men armed and in full body armor in one hour. Mr. Johnson, you can tell the C.E.O. the demolition crews will have total access at 0600 hours tomorrow morning.
Sergeant Warren Reed:
Hey, we don't do that kind of work.
That was a direct order, sergeant.
Sergeant Warren Reed:
Driving people out of their homes is no work for a cop.
Now, sergeant... fifteen years on the force is quite an investment. Your job, your pension... Maybe instead of worrying about these squatter people,...

Although less violent than the two preceding Robocop films, the BBFC still cut 4 seconds from the UK cinema and video versions, possibly to remove a brief glimpse of nun chucks. 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
