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.
Robocop 3 is a good movie. While it loses some of the darker edge of the first two it makes up for it with a good story, equal amounts of action, cool new gadgets, and decent acting to boot.
The powers that be want to relocate women, children, the elderly from their homes to make way for Delta City. These people are labeled as "terrorists" for not wanting to leave. This was back in 1993. That is the great thing about science fiction, you can point all all the injustice and absurdities of our time and get away with it.
The story here is that OCP has officially taken over Detroit. However in the process they are being taken over by a Japanese Company (what goes around comes around), their founder is dead and a bumbling fool is in his place. OCP has set up a band of Mercenaries to clear out the urban areas of Detroit so they can build Delta City. However to do so they need to clear out the people living there. In the process thousands are left homeless and separated from their families. Eventually Robocop takes a stand against this and in the process becomes a fugitive from the law. However in the end he exposes the evil that is going on and saves the day as he once again serves and protects.
This is a better movie than #2 mostly because they did tone down the violence level and focused on the story. While there is plenty of action and even some funny moments (like the little girl Niko controlling an Ed209) this movie is more story driven. You actually start to care about the people losing their homes and it gives hope for the franchise. Definitely recommended.
