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

The scene where the rehabs take over the Resistance base was one of worry for Fred Dekker, who had visited the set around two in the morning hours before shooting the scene. He'd story boarded everything but had no idea where his actors would be positioned in the scene. After the scene was shot, Dekker surprised himself and very proud of the scene. See more »
Dr. Lazarus tells Fleck that Robocop is essentially Murphy and that parts of Murphy's face, cerebrum and cerebellum were used to create Robocop. This contradicts information from the first movie, RoboCop. Even though the first movie does not go into detail on how much of Murphy's body parts were used to make Robocop, the fact that he needed a rudimentary paste (that tasted like baby food) to "sustain his organic system" would imply that Robocop would at least have a (albeit simplified) digestive system of some kind.

The first two ROBOCOP movies are classics thanks to the extraordinary writing and directing. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about ROBOCOP 3. In fact, the writing and directing are the two main problems with ROBOCOP 3.
For this third installment, co-writer Fred Dekker takes over directing duties and manages to pull off one of the worst directing jobs I have ever witnessed. How hard can it be to make ROBOCOP movie and have it not suck? I'd imagine one would have to work really hard to mess up a ROBOCOP movie. The action sequences look horrendous, lacking the style and coolness of the action scenes in the first two movies. Maybe this wouldn't be so bad if there was actually a decent script and character development, but none of that is evident in this disaster. What the viewer is left with is a lifeless, boring, and cheap looking sequel that leaves fans begging that there will not be a fourth installment. Luckily, so far there has not been a ROBOCOP 4.
