In this second sequel to RoboCop, the mechanical humanoid opposes the evil designs of his creators, who have gone corrupt and are trying to take over all real estate in Detroit, kicking the poorer citizens out of their homes and turning them out into the streets. ~ Rovi

May 1, 2007:Frank Miller on "300," "The Spirit" & "Sin City 2"
Frank Miller had to suffer through some really terrible years where Hollywood is concerned, but now...
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Limiting the gore, but not the carnage, in pursuit of a PG-13 rating and more youngsters, pic remains a cluttered, nasty exercise that seems principally intent on selling action figures.
In the latest episode of the series, which seems to have nearly run out of steam, he is portrayed by Robert John Burke, an actor who bears some resemblance to Mr. Weller while lacking his forerunner's tongue-in-cheek glint of authoritarian machismo.
Why do they persist in making these retreads? Because RoboCop is a brand name, I guess, and this is this year's new model. It's an old tradition in Detroit to take an old design and slap on some fresh chrome.
This installment goes for straight action, allowing only brief instances of the facetiousness which made the original so enjoyable.
Worse than anything to do with the plot, is the saggy action, which has that unpleasant peek-a-boo quality of hard violence retrofitted into teen-friendly fare.
What was turning out to be a smart franchise here loses an edge it never quite recovers.
All of the humanity of the first movie and what little there was in the second movie are drained from RoboCop 3.
Hard to believe that Frank Miller, who's written some great graphic novels, also churned out this dismal script. The absence of Weller doesn't help matters.
Special effects are OK and RoboCop even gets to fly, using a specially designed jetpack. But it's all for naught, as this series has run out of fresh ideas.
A pretty illogical plot, uninteresting characters and so-so effects are sure to keep this one a snoozer.
