All good things must come to an end and the RoboCop franchise is no exception from this point on, sadly. How threatening can a robotic defense system get if it can be disabled by a fearless child who knows too much about hacking to be taken seriously? The performances aren't terrible but certainly not up to par. The humor would work if the jokes weren't recycled from the previous films.
RoboCop isn't played by Peter Weller, hammering an additional nail in the coffin. The metallic character has been given technological upgrades but they take away from the hero we've come to love. The production value is considerable but the weak script handicaps the film. In addition to your dystopian gangsters, the police force must now face a samurai cyborg, of all things. It's a mess...
There are significant treats in-between all the déjà-vu: an immersing cyberpunk vibe, the loss of an important recurring character and RoboCop's curious ability to makes friends. Lots of them! While those are all remarkable attempts at innovation, as a whole, the film falls flat. Decorating our metal hero with a machine gun, a flame thrower and a jet-pack, as it turns out, was a serious mistake...
