The serialized story structure and barbed social commentary from comic book creator and co-writer Frank Miller earned critical respect in this satirical science fiction sequel directed by Irvin Kershner. Peter Weller returns as RoboCop, a futuristic cyborg fashioned from cutting-edge technology and the biological remains of slain Detroit police officer, Alex Murphy.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Everything in the first movie is pretty much redone again. But in this case, the repetition isn't a bad thing."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The movie's screenplay is a confusion of half-baked and unfinished ideas."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A weak and utterly uneven follow-up, but at least presents some unique ideas about RoboCop and his world."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Still compelling action sci-fi, due to Weller's character."
‑ Steve Crum,
"...the film forsakes most of its progenitor's lighthearted yet moving emotional appeal and replaces it with gunfire, car chases, and explosions."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"RoboCop 2 is all machine, and it's all vile."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"With its desensitizing blood lust, RoboCop 2 contributes yet another ugly note to this already demoralizing season of sadism."
‑ Hal Hinson, Washington Post
"Rehashes the satiric and character-based concerns of its superior predecessor."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"An unfairly maligned sequel that's just as edgy and exciting as the original."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"George Orwell has to be turning over in his grave"
‑ James Brundage,
"This ultraviolent, nihilistic sequel has enough technical dazzle to impress hardware fans, but obviously no one in the Orion front office told filmmakers that less is more."
‑ , Variety
"A fairly generic turn-of-the-'90s action film...judged as a sequel to RoboCop, it's irrelevant and ridiculously trivial."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"I'll maintain that RoboCop 2 is a worthy sequel, though with every fresh viewing I see more of its faults and scatterbrained structure."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"You almost have to admire Robocop 2 for undermining everything its predecessor stood for with an incredible sense of single-mindedness."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Fairly crummy sequel with a few redeeming action sequences."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
