RoboCop Prime Directives - 6/10
This movie was split into 4 parts each lasting about 90 minutes each.
The episodes was entitled, Dark Justice, Meltdown, Resurrection and Cash and Burn.
The story takes place 10 years after the original RoboCop completely ignoring 2 and 3. Delta City has finally been build but OCP is on the verge of total financial collapse. Robo has spent all the 10 years keeping the town safe, but is now almost rendered completely obsolete.
This movie was made by a small company in Canada and was made on a very low budget. All of this can be seen as the acting was not Hollywood blockbuster and the special effects was really corny. You could also see they had no money to get really good make up artists. They did however get robo suits from the original creator Rob Bottin. The main role of RoboCop went to Page Fletcher, I will admit he was not the best choice as he is only 5 feet tall making Robo look like a midget.
The story starts out really dark and angsty but does a complete 180 half way through making it a cheap sci-fi with a maniac villain with a killer virus.
They went away from the PG13 and made it really gory and bloody as the first movie, and this can be seen as people get their hands blown of, and heads smashed in with a sledgehammer. But they spent to much of the money in drawn out action sequences that was not really that spectacular, as it was just people running around shooting at robo while he stood completely still taking them down one by one, or breaking though glass.
I do think it had it's own kind of charm though if you completely forget about the first movies and keep this as a movie all it's own. If they have had more funding I am sure they could have done better, I personally think they did ok considering what they had to work with.
But it is of course a given that it would be no way near as good as the original, no movie ever can.
History Abhors a Paradox.
