RoboCop 2 (1990)

RoboCop 2 (1990)

Directed by: Irvin Kershner

Starring: Peter Weller, Belinda Bauer, John Glover

So, correct me if I’m wrong, but the only reason the RoboCop franchise became popular was because of all the video games and comic books and stuff, right? Because I’ve now seen all three of these movies, and none of them are anything to write home about.

So there’s this guy who’s part robot and he’s a cop, so they call him RoboCop, right? Right. Well, he’s out to crack down on the newest and most dangerous drug on the streets, “nuke”. After he nearly kills the leader of the evil drug gang, the corrupt and even more evil corporation that runs everything turns the drug guy into another, even bigger RoboCop… which obviously goes crazy and blows everything up.

Just like in the first film, the only good part of RoboCop 2 are the stop-motion special effects. There’s an art to making big robot things shoot missiles at each other, and that’s pretty much the only part of the film they cared about. I mean, nobody’s going to be commenting about Peter Weller’s performance as the titular cyborg or anything. “He’s very deadpan. Excellent work. I really did believe that he was a robot!”
