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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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