RoboCop 3

Genre: Sci-fi and Fantasy, Action/Adventure, Mystery and Thriller; Starring: Robert John Burke, John Castle, Rip Torn; Director: Fred Dekker; Author: Fred Dekker, Frank Miller; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Orion Pictures

Those looking for the RoboCop of old, look elsewhere. Robert John Burke replaces Peter Weller in the title role — his chin’s the spittin’ image but all resemblance ends there. With none of the dark wit that made the 1987 original a brilliantly subversive satire, RoboCop 3 teams the supercyborg with a band of rebels and a computer whiz kid (this is something of a touchy-feely RoboCop) against a real estate development corporation that kicks people out of their homes. The struggle builds to a fight to the death against some cyborg ninjas — but by then you can’t help rooting for the ninjas, just to avoid another sequel.
