Directed by Fred Dekker, from a story written by Frank Miller, RoboCop 3 is the third installment of the RoboCop franchise. Released in the USA on November 5th 1993, it follows the ... aahhh, never mind, damn what happened??? What this shit???
While the RoboCop series is characterized by an ultra violent action and environment, this third film is packed with non-lethal shooting action scenes! Did you notice? Everybody shoots at everybody, and almost no one is ever hit! Of course Anne Lewis is, but I bet it was an accidental lost bullet. Even Robo is totally unable to hit a target! Remember, in the two first movies, he could head-shoot anyone, even when looking in another direction! Now, he empties his gun without succeeding to hit anyone! WTF? Also, it looks like he spend his time ruining cars, without any reason! For example, when he shoots at the roof of his cars to open a hole to get out... Eh! there was NO reason to damage this car, financed by tax payers! The door was perfectly operational!
And there is a Ninja! Yeah, this is always cool to have ninja in movies, ... except in this one! Same for the flame thrower, and the jet pack! What the hell is the point of RoboCop being able to fly!
See what happens when Hollywood wants to maximize (potential) profits? They take a famous franchise, they mix all kinds of ingredients which, taken individually, are popular, no matter how incoherent they are together. And they cut out all the violence to obtain a PG-13 rating! Like that, you obtain a film with a maximum potential audience, made to please "a bit" of everyone, and you just have to wait for the dollars to flow into your pocket... I don't understand how guys, who are professionals, experienced, and have degrees of all kinds, can come up with this kind of bullshit! Simply at the reading of the script, anyone with two cents of reason will see this is not going to work!

Totally agree, watched it a few months back and what a pile of shit. Agree to all your points and same to be made of the remake, tame and tamer. Cool spfx that we've only come to expect in 2014 but I'd rather see a bloody squib blowup any day over cg or nothing at all. Bring back practical effects!

It's off-topic, but did you notice that in the RoboCop remake of 2014, there are tons of shootings and killings, but not a single bullet impact effect on bodies, and nearly never any blood? Non-shocking violence!

Yes totally awful from an artistic point of view! However, the story was good.
