Robocop Retrospective: Robocop 2 (1990)
Director: Irvin Kerschner
Starring: Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O'Herlihy, Belinda Bauer, Tom Noonan, Gabriel Damon
Bad language makes for bad feelings.
It's Robocop 2...LITERALLY (he's robotic nemesis is actually called Robocop 2)! Three years later, Detroit's protector returned. Verhoeven was able to return, but no fear, Irvin Kershner was in the director's chair. Frank Miller, of ultimate Batman comic book fame, was penning the script. Peter Weller and pretty much all the original cast, whose characters were still alive, are back! Maybe this would wind up The Empire Strikes Back of the Robocop saga. This sounds like they got all the right chips in place.
NEXT TIME: I got nothing...I've never seen Robocop 3 or anything from it. So this should be a surprise.
