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.

A tame and brutally boring final installment...

What was turning out to be a smart franchise here loses an edge it never quite recovers.

Watch the first episode but stop after that.

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.

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

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.

June 6, 2004 the very least, Robocop 3 works as a popcorn movie - something part two couldn't even manage.

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

It's just stupid.

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.

This installment goes for straight action, allowing only brief instances of the facetiousness which made the original so enjoyable.

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.

As for the conflict, it's hardly riveting and often it's downright silly. The sets and effects betray their downsized budget. And the Japanese bashing is less artful than in Rising Sun, though just as obnoxious.

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

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

A pretty illogical plot, uninteresting characters and so-so effects are sure to keep this one a snoozer.
