    I really don't get the hate for Robocop 2 or 3, I didn't think they were that bad.

I generally liked 2. It was more over the top in its cynicism which meant more over the top in violence. The writing and acting was more cartoony. The first movie mostly took itself seriously even though being over the top. 2 knows it's basically a dark action comedy.

3 is junk though. It seems like a movie based on an action figure line. I can't believe Frank Miller wrote this. Its so restrained, so sitcom-ish. I'm sure he didn't like having to keep it PG or PG-13 or whatever it ended up being.
