The mega corporation Omni Consumer Products is still bent on creating their pet project, Delta City, to replace the rotting city of Detroit. Unfortunately, the inhabitants of the area have no intention of abandoning their homes simply for desires of the company. To this end, OCP have decided to force them to leave by employing a ruthless mercenary army to attack and harass them. An underground resistance begins and in this fight, Robocop must decide where his loyalties lie.Written by

During the walkout, the first officer immediately after Sgt. Warren Reed removes his badge with his right hand and throws it in a direction that would place it landing at McDaggett's feet, but in the ground level close-up it falls to his left at Johnson's feet where Reed first dropped his with his left hand. A number of officers follow suit, also throwing their badge to their right in wide-shot, but the close-up shows them all scattered below Jonhson, and as they continue to walk out the close-up shows McDaggett on their right and the badges on their left.

That's the fourth one this month.
Chicken shit! I'd eat a bullet, myself. Less showy.

End of a trilogy, what a way to go out on a whimper instead of a bang.
Robocop 3 (1993) was an unwanted sequel that helped killed a studio and sat on the shelf for over two years. Why was this movie made? Who knows, it didn't make a dime and the film makers tried to make him kid friendly which killed the series in the process. The movie was so unwanted that Peter Weller didn't want to reprise his role of Officer Murphy for a third time. Whilst the second film was extremely dark and depressing, the third installment swung wildly in the other direction. Two wrongs don't make a right. The director and writer Fred Dekkar should have known better. He made a couple of fun and watchable movies in the past. What ever made them click misfired on all cylinders in this boring and safe for the family sequel.
Well, this movie killed it's box office draw. Nobody wanted to see a kid friendly Robocop. The next time it appeared was on the small screen in two syndicated television programs. Neither raised a big stink and Robocop went back into mothballs. A shame really because Robocop was cool. Hell, part two is a classic compared to this celluloid tripe.
Recommended for die-hard Robocop fans. Other need not apply, except children who want to see Robocop in action.
