Mentre la polizia è in sciopero, a Detroit la deliquenza è sempre più forte, anche a causa di una nuova potentissima droga, la Nuke, prodotta dalla OCP (Omni Consumer Products), allo scopo di ridurre in suo potere la città. Il sindaco Kuzak, la cui amministrazione è gravemente indebitata, non è in grado di difendere Detroit, che si avvia allo sfascio. Ma Robocop, il poliziotto-robot, creato col cervello dell'eroico agente Murphy, morto in servizio, continua ad operare per il bene pubblico, garantendo il rispetto della legge, proteggendo gli innocenti e uccidendo i delinquenti secondo le regole per le quali è stato programmato. Egli è aiutato dalla coraggiosa collega Anne Lewis. Poichè Robocop è a volte turbato da fuggevoli e confusi ricordi del suo passato di uomo, la OCP decide di distruggerlo e di fabbricare un cyborg più perfetto. Collabora col Grande Vecchio, potente capo della OCP, un gruppo di spietati deliquenti, fra i quali primeggiano Cain, un esaltato e drogato criminale, che controlla il traffico della Nuke a Detroit e ha per amante la cattiva Angie, e il dodicenne Hob, precoce e sadico gangster. Intanto, essendo stato ridotto in fin di vita e col corpo addirittura a brandelli Robocop, la OCP lo ripara, ma altera i suoi programmi, rendendolo incapace di combattere il crimine. Però egli, sottoponendosi ad un forte shock elettrico, torna al suo programma originale e riprende la lotta contro Cain. Frattanto la polizia interrompe lo sciopero e affianca Robocop e Lewis irrompendo nel laboratorio in cui viene prodotta la Nuke, Cain viene ferito a morte nello scontro, e in seguito ucciso dai suoi stessi complici, per poter trapiantare il suo cervello criminale nel gigantesco mostro meccanico, avido di...

"RoboCop" is a surprisingly impressive action film about a young cop (Peter Weller) who is killed by a gang of cruel criminals and is brought back to life with both human and robotic characteristics. Now he is cleaning up the city of Detroit and going after those who brutally murdered him when he was 100% human. This film is ultra-violent in every sense of the word. Anyone under the age of 17 should be strongly cautioned before seeing this film. However, the violence makes the film realistic and more exciting. Paul Verhoeven does some of his best work as a director. The screenplay is very smart for an action film and all the actors give bravura performances. Peter Weller will always be remembered as the original "RoboCop". Ronny Cox, Nancy Allen, Miguel Ferrer, and an incredibly evil Kurtwood Smith all do the best work of their careers. An impressive film from the action genre. 4 stars out of 5.
This is one of my favorite movies. I used to rent it constantly before I finally got my own. Heck, I must have rented this film so much, I almost made the retailer a millionaire.
This film is alot more violent than the first one. The subject of this film is RoboCop trying to rid the city of a drug called Nuke; my favorite part of the film is when OCP reprograms Robo into being more calm and cool and make speeches. It's funny when
he tries to talk some kids down from robbing an electronics store and playing with a broken hydrant, they curse him and he says, "Bad language makes for bad feelings". The title character is also interesting, but deadly!
He makes ED-209 look like a pussycat! It seems The Old Man has turned into a bad guy in this movie. He was a good guy in RoboCop 1, but now he's a bad guy with a real biotch of an assistant, Faxx. They both should've gotten their commupance in the end, but nope, but it's like RoboCop said, "We're only human". So in conclusion, I recommend this film! It's as good as the first!!
By the way, the boy who plays Hob, the junior gang accomplice of Cain also did the voice of Littlefoot in the first Land Before Time!
It's an entertaining film that satirises the corporate `greed is good' attitude of the late `80s, while delivering a straightforward plot as Robocop goes on the hunt for the drug dealers. Filled with plenty of action, some great set pieces, memorable villains and loads of classic quotable lines this is as entertaining a 100 minutes of film as you will see. It suffers a little from a saggy middle section in which Robocop has to deal with the legacy of his human side, and the changes to his programming made by the company. In general, in today's cinematic landscape of `complicated' heroes who are constantly introspecting or walking a line between good and bad i9t's nice to see this sort of old fashioned, simple good vs bad plot line so energetically and stylishly played out. Four stars.
First off, this movie is a lot more violent than the first "RoboCop". You get scenes of bloody shootings, grisly scenes of torture, and a surgery which I'd rather let you see for yourself than describe here. Paul Verhoeven does not return to shock his audience with graphic violence and ultra dark humor, which has since become trademark in his films. The director this time is Irvin Kershner, who made "The Empire Strikes Back" nearly ten years before this movie. Kershner seems to focus a lot more on action, rather than story.
Second, the movie's villain, Cain (Tom Noonan), to me is a direct opposite of Clarence Boddicker (the villain from the first film who was played by Kurtwood Smith). Cain enjoys giving people pleasure (through his highly addictive designer drug called Nuke) while Boddicker was a sadist who took pleasure in the death and suffering of others. (Though after Cain's "transformation", none of this really matters).
Lastly, this movie does not exploit children. The kid in this movie, Hob (played by Gabriel Damon) is Cain's twelve year-old side kick. He is a violent, foul-mouthed little child who runs errands for Cain. The writers for this movie did this intentionally, to show that crime holds no age barrier. Regardless of age, crime is crime.
Like I said, "RoboCop 2" is not trying to be better than its predecessor, it's just trying to be something different.

Great story, great action and breathtaking special effects. As good as, if not better than the original.Read more
