Robocop 3
Robert John Burke, Rip Torn, Remy Ryan, Nancy Allen and Jill Hennessy

Rated: PG-13

Release date: November 5, 1993 Released by: Orion

The third film in the series has a couple of changes: Robert John Burke now plays the lead, although he bears a striking resemblance to the original star, Peter Weller and the (R) rating has been toned down to a much welcomed (PG-13).

Rip Torn is at his most excitable as the head of OMC, an evil corporation that is evicting residents of a Detroit suburb so they can expand their business. When some of the homeowners take up weapons to protect their home, OMC sends in their big guns.

A young girl (Remy Ryan) whose parents are killed by OMC, joins the underground group of ragtag fighters. She enlists the help of Robocop and the fireworks begin.

Nancy Allen reprises her role as Robocop's human partner and Jill Hennessy plays the technical doctor who puts him back together again.

Robocop 3 has enough explosives, high-tech fighting and action to lease young teens and some needed humor to appease those who accompany them.
