A fairly generic turn-of-the-'90s action film...judged as a sequel to RoboCop, it's irrelevant and ridiculously trivial.

A weak and utterly uneven follow-up, but at least presents some unique ideas about RoboCop and his world.

Rehashes the satiric and character-based concerns of its superior predecessor.

I'll maintain that RoboCop 2 is a worthy sequel, though with every fresh viewing I see more of its faults and scatterbrained structure.

Still compelling action sci-fi, due to Weller's character.

An unfairly maligned sequel that's just as edgy and exciting as the original.

You almost have to admire Robocop 2 for undermining everything its predecessor stood for with an incredible sense of single-mindedness.

...the film forsakes most of its progenitor's lighthearted yet moving emotional appeal and replaces it with gunfire, car chases, and explosions.

I truly believe the filmmakers had good intentions, but the results are appalling.

An inferior follow-up, but still entertaining. Lacks an interesting central villain, but some great robot mano-a-mano.
| Original Score: 4/5

Everything in the first movie is pretty much redone again. But in this case, the repetition isn't a bad thing.

RoboCop 2 is all machine, and it's all vile.

This ultraviolent, nihilistic sequel has enough technical dazzle to impress hardware fans, but obviously no one in the Orion front office told filmmakers that less is more.

Despite a few laughs and some exciting moments, RoboCop 2 is a mess.

With its desensitizing blood lust, RoboCop 2 contributes yet another ugly note to this already demoralizing season of sadism.

The movie's screenplay is a confusion of half-baked and unfinished ideas.
