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.Written by

Michelle Manning, who was one of the heads of Orion Pictures, originally asked her close friend Fred Dekker to write the screenplay with Shane Black after working on the HBO Series Tales from the Crypt (1989), which revived his career as a writer/director. However, Black was busy writing The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996) at the time, as well as working on The Last Boy Scout (1991), which was going through on-set issues at the time. After failing to find a suitable director for the film, Manning asked Dekker to also direct, as well as re-write Frank Miller's script. Dekker maintains to this day that he still has very mixed feelings about the film, because it subsequently killed his career as a director, and also because the script was not what it should have been.

As Anne Lewis is dying in the church, fatally shot, she speaks her last words to Robocop. As she does so, she has one dilated pupil and one that isn't. If someone is in that state, they could not speak as that is a sign that they are technically brain dead. See more »
Robocop 3 is an 'insult' to the classic original. First of all, the character of Robocop is played by someone else and the result is just plain embarrassing. The film is very soft on violence, which was a poor decision on the director's part because the original film is notorious for its excessiveness and loved by fans. A PG-RATED Robocop is just a desperate attempt to cash in on the wider audience, which proves that the film was made by profiteers, rather than film-makers. This film is so bad, it's literally dripping with cheese. Robocop flying is an unintentional funny moment in the film and the part where Robocop drives a car off a bridge and lands on all four wheels, is just plain ridiculous. This film was the nail in the Robocop franchise's coffin. I honestly wish that it had never been made.
