ROBOCOP 2 (1990 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Robocop 2—a better watch than its prequel Robocop—still serves up B-grade sci-fi action. Nothing really new here in storyline. Robocop has a problem and he saves the day. Gabriel Damon performs very well in his assigned character Hob. It’s a fair to middling piece of entertainment for the sci-fi fan and really works as a movie to run in the background during a get-together party after work with friends.

Storyline

After crime goes rampant in Detroit, Robocop needs to find a way to override his primary directives to effectively curb the increase in crime.

Additional Thanks

Thank You to Director Irvin Kershner for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producer Patrick Crowley for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Magnavolt Salesman (John Glover), Casey Wong (Mario Machado), Jesse Perkins (Leeza Gibbons), Surgeon General (John Ingle), Cain (Tom Noonan), Whittaker (Roger Aaron Brown), Stef (Mark Rolston), Homeless Woman (Lila Finn), Purse Snatcher (John Hateley), Hooker (Gage Tarrant), Chet (Thomas Rosales, Jr.), and Flint (Brandon Smith).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. If an audience wants to finish the Robocop series, then it should be on the viewing list, but the Lethal Weapon series 1 through 4 or Last Stand for police/action movies are better choices for higher quality entertainment value. If one is looking for a ‘saving the world’ entertainment piece, Total Recall performs solidly as a sci-fi/spy story combined.
