RoboCop 3 Reviews
But Robert John Burke made a different robotic movement. Even the script has written was wrong and failed, but that was okay. Anyway, a mixed review and thumbs up for me "RoboCop 3".
Go watch the original instead of torturing yourself with this trash.
The Pros: Looks good. Natural evolution of the story. Has that social commentary I adore.
The Cons: Disappointing departure from the brutal mature tone of the first two. New actor plays Robocop and it's really really noticeable. Poor filmmaking choices (franchise killed by "Hollywooditis").
Judged as a movie and not compared to its predecessors, it's an above average piece of action-adventure cinema. Judged as the 2nd sequel to Robocop, it is way too Hollywood (overblown and watered down)
Everything from the absence of Peter Weller, to the retreading of plot points covered in the first two movies already. The film has horrible one liners, average action sequences that lack the bloody, gritty punch of the original, and humor that has no satirical bite.
The film also introduces a little kid who's incredibly good at hacking for some reason, and has Robocop form an emotional bond to him with no context as to why. My guess is to make the film seem more family friendly, which was an incredibly stupid choice.
The film does still have some good looking practical effects. Robocops armor still looks great, and the ED 209's still look pretty good. The film is also mostly fun to watch because of how hilariously bad most of it is.
The first Robocop had dark humor, good performances, and bloody, well made action sequences. Robocop two was lacked a lot of the humor, but still had good action sequences, and Weller reprising his role.
Robocop three has none of that. The actor standing in for Weller does a horrible job delivering his lines and has no charisma. The action scenes are bland and lazy, and the humor and more family friendly aspect they were going for hurts the film horribly. Watch the first two and forget this one exists.
