Yeah, that’s right, I love this movie. Is it as good as the first? No, but it’s still hugely entertaining and just as violent.
Director Irvin Kershner (Empire Strikes Back) manages to maintain the satire from the first movie as well as the massive bodycount.
I really enjoyed the villain Kane who was suitably different from Clarence Boddicker but no less scary. When he becomes the robot version, he looks awesome. Sure the stop motion effects are dated now but it’s still a good time!
Plot: Cyborg Detroit policeman Alex Murphy (Peter Weller) is the sole officer on duty after the police force goes on strike against evil conglomerate Omni Consumer Products and its push to foreclose on the city of Detroit. Aside from dealing with the normal level of crime, Murphy must take on crime boss Cain (Tom Noonan), the spread of a dangerous new drug called “Nuke” and the attempt by psychologist Dr. Juliette Faxx (Belinda Bauer) to create another Robocop using a hardened criminal.
