The mega corporation Omni Consumer Products is still bent on creating their pet project, Delta City, to replace the rotting city of Detroit. Unfortunately, the inhabitants of the area have no intention of abandoning their homes simply for desires of the company. To this end, OCP have decided to force them to leave by employing a ruthless mercenary army to attack and harass them. An underground resistance begins and in this fight, RoboCop must decide where his loyalties lie.

_RoboCop 2_ might pale in comparison to the original, but _RoboCop 3_ is the sequel that's genuinely bad. _Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._

Nancy Allen ("Lewis") is pretty much the sole survivor from the original in this, frankly, terrible conclusion to the series. Dan O'Herlihy must have read the script and so passed on control of his technology company ("OCP") to the even more ruthless "Casey Wong" (Mario Machado) who uses Hollywood veteran Rip Torn ("the CEO") and his para-military pal "McDaggett" (John Castle) do demotivate what is left of the Detroit police force; replace them with a bunch of criminal enforcers - the "Rehabs" and do for the city what Nero did for Rome - glass and steel phoenix from the ashes sort of thing. Luckily, our half-man half tin-opener lawman is on hand to fight the good fight and thwart this most evil of plans. There is plenty of action, to be fair, but the dialogue really does put the "b" in anal, the acting is really wooden and what innovation there was from 1987 has long gone. It is a pretty shameless attempt to capitalise on a dying franchise that is really nobody's finest work either behind or in front of the camera. Really, just a shocking waste of celluloid.
