Robocop 2

5 Ratings: 1.4
The 1990 sequel to Robocop.

A dark and grim sequel to Robocop written by comic book writer Frank Miller.  Some of his original ideas were scrapped because they were considered "unfilmable".  But the film retains it's bleak atmosphere.

Robocop is back on the beat in this dark sequel.

Robocop 2 (1990) was a sequel to the surprise and twisted black comedy hit Robocop. This is a very dark sequel. The humor that made the first film is missing and it is overtly violent. A pretty sadistic movie that's lacking in many places. Too bad they had to make a sequel and produce it without the elements they made the first film a true classic.

Detroit City is in a far worse situation than the first film. Whilst part one had a glimmer of hope at the end, it was all naught. O.C.P. is even more of a cruel corporation and they're not showing enough profit from the Robocop program. They tried to make cheaper and more cost efficient version but they all end in horrific failure. Meanwhile a new super designer drug is flooding the streets creating all sorts of havoc for the defenseless citizens and out gunned and out manned police department. Can Robocop once again come back and save the day?

Not a bad sequel but when compared to the first film it has no legs to stand on. The film makers tried tweaking the sequel and make it a bit different but it just didn't work. Watchable but not an instant classic. The film is just too dark and sadistic. Mixing those with a comic book movie doesn't work nine times out of ten. Followed by a kid friendly sequel that sat on the shelf for two and a half years.
