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.

The series had run its course.

A tame and brutally boring final installment...

Dekker's third instalment also comes third in terms of merit.

All of the humanity of the first movie and what little there was in the second movie are drained from RoboCop 3.

If you really want more RoboCop, rent the video of the first movie.

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.

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.

No, it's not a good movie. In fact, it's really quite awful, to be honest.

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.
