This is one of the four made-for-tv Robocop movies made a few years back and I must say as a fan of the franchise, they didn't do so well.
They take place ten or so years after the first movie and make it seem like the two other movies didn't happen.
The story is fine for the medium but really doesn't do justice to the character of Robocop.
One of the things that bothers me is the fact that the guy they got to play the role is really short. Every other person in the cast is taller than him and that takes away some of the power of the metal icon.
The story is weak and the acting is limited. The budget was low and that might be the reason they were able to make four of the things.
As a fan of the character I can watch them ok but it isn't easy. Most people who check them out might think they are silly and a waste of time if they can make it through even one of them.

I had high hopes for this.
There was all of this hype that this series was going to take ROboCop back to its gritty roots.
Instead it had power ranger campiness.
