    I love the polite Robocop parts. Hillarious. Also glad to see they continue with the silly commercials. 7 years 11 months ago

    I liked this as much as the first one. More over the top in every way, even with the biting satire. 7 years 9 months ago

    The one really interesting thing in Robocop 2 is Murphy struggling with the loss of his family and identity, his masters reprogramming him to be ineffectual as a way to sell their new Robocop 2 (heh), and that moment when he sets himself free. That's when they forget about him for the length of an act to focus on the villains, and by the time it's all over, after an extended and rather tedious shoot'em up, all the interesting stuff's been forgotten. Comic book reflexes from Frank Miller? I mean, comics have continuations, movies don't guarantee them (although there are more Robocop movies, of course). It's not a total wash. There are some amusing parody commercials, one the bad guys is a little boy and another is an amoral psychologist, the corporation is trying to buy the city which I think is probably the most believable sf element in the story, and there's a lot of stop-motion action for fans of those kinds of effects. But it loses much of the good will it's acquired with it's loud, blaring finale. Oh well. I did almost give it half a star more for the end music operatically singing ROBOCOP over and over though. And full disclosure: I think I've been remembering this flick wrong for years, confusing it with The Toxic Avenger or Robocop 3 or I don't know what. 8 months 3 weeks ago
