Michelle Manning, who was one of the heads of Orion Pictures, originally asked her close friend Fred Dekker to write the screenplay with Shane Black after working on the HBO Series Tales from the Crypt (1989), which revived his career as a writer/director. However, Black was busy writing The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) at the time, as well as working on The Last Boy Scout (1991), which was going through on-set issues at the time. After failing to find a suitable director for the film, Manning asked Dekker to also direct, as well as re-write Frank Miller's script. Dekker maintains to this day that he still has very mixed feelings about the film, because it subsequently killed his career as a director, and also because the script was not what it should have been.

In the rebel warehouse a guy is seen playing a large transverse flute. No sound is produced and he is only moving one finger and clearly not playing. The flute does look more like an alt recorder. See more »
[after the androids behead each other]
Stupid fools. Don't you know what you've done to us? Those androids are programmed with a thermal failsafe device.

Although less violent than the two preceeding Robocop films, the BBFC still cut 4 seconds from the UK cinema and video versions, possibly to remove a brief glimpse of nunchucks. See more »
When I was very little, I became a fan of the first 2 Robocop films. So when I heard they were going to release a third movie, I couldn't wait. Then I saw the movie, and couldn't believe what I had just saw. I was terrible. The story was actually good and could have worked. But they had to do what ruins a lot of other movies:add a little kid character. It also featured a very horribly written character of a robot ninja. And without Peter Weller from the first two movies, this movie just wasn't the same. And a PG-13 rating? The whole point of the Robocop movies was to make some of the most violent and swear-filled movies you'll ever see. So my advice to you would be to watch the first two Robocop films, and pretend this one was never made.
