Gone is the heart of the first film with its mini-tragedy of a man trapped in a machine.

Full review…

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.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A fairly generic turn-of-the-'90s action film...judged as a sequel to RoboCop, it's irrelevant and ridiculously trivial.

Everything in the first movie is pretty much redone again. But in this case, the repetition isn't a bad thing.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

The movie's screenplay is a confusion of half-baked and unfinished ideas.

Cinema Crazed

A weak and utterly uneven follow-up, but at least presents some unique ideas about RoboCop and his world.

RoboCop 2 is all machine, and it's all vile.

Hal Hinson
Washington Post

With its desensitizing blood lust, RoboCop 2 contributes yet another ugly note to this already demoralizing season of sadism.

Lessons of Darkness

Rehashes the satiric and character-based concerns of its superior predecessor.

Because I grew up on these movies, I liked it. Not the best acting, but still cool.

Spot Collins from Newsies plays a murdering drug pusher 11 year old. Can't beat that. Also, Tom Noohan plays a killer robot that is fueled by drugs. And at… More

Seems to be innevitable that sequels to great movies devolve into parodies of themselves in some way or shape. Not that it's a bad thing per se, Robocop 2… More
