Bede’s Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon #61: RoboCop 3

Hey, everyone! Welcome to my 61st edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon series! As you already know earlier this month here on, I posted up poll with three bad movies and I said that whichever one out of those three films had the highest votes, I would watch and live-tweet for this column. Well, the votes are in and you all have spoken. For this 61st instalment of Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon, you guys wanted me to watch and live-tweet… ROBOCOP 3! Is this one of the worst threequels ever made? Whose idea was it to make a ROBOCOP film that lacks the satire and violence of the previous entries? Read on and find out! Enjoy!

I know I’ve said this many times before and I’ll say it again: is it too late for me to *not* watch this film lol?

Ah, ROBOCOP 3. The film that pretty much practically destroyed NIGHT OF THE CREEPS and THE MONSTER SQUAD director Fred Dekker’s career.

Wow… This CGI city. I always forget awful early ‘90s CGI can be lol.

Oh, that was for TV ad. That explains everything lol.

The iPad of the ‘90s.

The Amazon wars? I know that Amazon may not be perfect but if it’s worth actually going to war with.

You want how you can tell when a sequel in a R rated franchise decides to go PG-13 and cater to kid friendly crowd? When child characters in it has an action figure of the film’s title character.

Oh, geez. You think that demolition team would have given that family some actual proper notice before tearing their home down.

Hey, C.C.H. Pounder! This film has slightly gone up a notch.

Also you want to know the second reason how you can tell when a sequel in a R rated franchise decides to go PG-13 and cater to kid friendly crowd? The bad guys call people ‘slime’ instead of saying swear words.

Don’t forget to grab that RoboCop action figure, kid. We want kids to buy our merchandise.

Okay, seeing C.C.H. Pounder walking around with a shotgun is pretty bad arse.

Oh, hi Stephen Root!

Nooo! How could that kid take down ED-209?! This is just plain wrong!

“We need guns. Lot of guns.”

“Get that” “Why?” “It looks expensive” Okay, I have to admit. That was a funny line.

Ah, a rocket pack. So ‘90s.

I like how ED-209 is clearly out front of that building but he isn’t in the next shot lol.

Holy shit! Jeff Garlin and Shane Black are in this film! I’ve seen this film before but I forgot they were in it! Geez, who doesn’t have a small role in this?!

Nancy Allen: forever bad arse.

So… This film is called ROBOCOP 3 and RoboCop still hasn’t shown up yet? What gives?!

Oh, wait. Never mind. There he is! Finally!

Splatter Punks? That’s a pretty un-intimadating name for a gang.

Well, that is guy is dead and that bit of blood on his shirt is the last bit of red stuff you’ll see in this film.

Yeah, I’m sorry. If I saw a gang that dressed like these Splatter Punks do, I would laugh my arse off.

Oh, hi RoboCop! It’s about time you showed up.

Ahh, kid. Shouldn’t you be looking for your parents?

Hey, Bradley Whitford!

Don’t care what anyone says, Rip Torn is such a cool name for an actor.

Hello, Jill Hennessy! *re-ow*

Jill’s character’s name is Dr. Lazarus? Very subtle, movie.

Man, Bradley Whitford knows how to play slimy characters very well. No wonder he’s made a career out of playing them.

So… How can RoboCop’s past memories from when he was fully a human show up on a TV screen? 🤔

NOOOOO!!! They killed RoboCop’s partner Lewis! She was one of the best characters in the series!!! How dare you, movie! How dare you!

Oh, well. Even though they killed her off early, Nancy Allen probably takes solace in the fact that she doesn’t have to be crappy film any longer.

The main villain is British. Why am I not surprised?

Don’t ask me why, I think it’s hilarious that Stephen Root’s character is named Coontz 😂

*Sigh*… So much lack of blood and proper good satire

Cleary this Otomo character is based on Chow Yun-Fat when he was in the A BETTER TOMORROW films. I wouldn’t be surprised they went after him but he turned this film down.

Wait, a minute. There’s a Christmas tree at this refugee camp? I shouldn’t be surprised. If Shane Black is around somewhere in a film, the film had to be set at Christmas

I don’t know why one of these refugee guards has a bayonet on his gun, by I admire him going old-fashioned with his weapon.

Otomo is a robot? That explains everything.

Wait, am I still watching ROBOCOP 3 or THE LAWNMOWER MAN? Cause this scene feels like it belongs in the later.

Oh, geez. They’re showing flashbacks to the first ROBOCOP film. That’s one thing a bad film should never do… Show clips from a better film in it lol.

Uh, oh. The kid doesn’t realise that her parents are actually dead and RoboCop knows about it. This is going to be awkward when he has to tell her 😬

“Do you have a ghost cop? A vampire cop?…” “No, but those would be great ideas for a spinoff film”

Holy crap! RoboCop has gone full Terminator on the bad guys at the police station!

Holy crap! Stephen Root is a spy for the bad guys! That’s… not really all that surprising to be honest.

Wow! RoboCop just blew all those bad guys and… not a single drop of blood was spilled. Lame.

I don’t know why RoboCop shot a huge hole in that door so that would be big enough for him to walk through, when he could have just open it. It wasn’t like it was locked or anything.

I like how RoboCop just DGAF throughout this whole film.

It kind of buzzes me out that Frank Miller co-wrote this film. It also buzzes me out that he also wrote the second film too.

“What the language. There are children present” Funnily enough that’s the first demand that the studio wanted for this sequel before Fred Dekker made it.

Oh, man. The kid’s unenthusiastic response to C.C.H. Pounder dying was hilarious!

This scene of all the cops quitting and leaving the station mirrors exactly what audience did while watching this film.

Okay, here we go. It’s RoboCop vs. Otomo. Mano to mano. Robot to robot. This better be good.

Oh, great. Those Splatter Punks are back again. All the good guys have to do is slap them and they’ll wet their pants out of fright.

Well… That fight between RoboCop and Otomo was… Underwhelming.

You would think that with bad guys are attackingf both the refugees and the cops, the city would send in the national guard or army or something but nope!

Oh, geez. RoboCop has got the jet pack on and he’s flying around taking out bad guys. I don’t know that to make of this.

Oh! Otomo isn’t dead! Hopefully we’ll have a much better showdown with RoboCop this time.

Wait… There’s two Otomos?! Okay, you’ve got my attention.

Well… That fight between RoboCop and the two Otomos was underwhelming. Again *Sigh*

Did a nuclear bomb just go off in the bad guy’s building?! Cause it looked like it!

Mako: forever a bad arse.

Well, that’s the end of the film. While it’s not as bad as everyone has made it to be, it’s still not a very good sequel at all.

I hope everyone enjoyed reading this 61st edition of my Bad Movie Tweet-A-Thon! Keep a look out later in July for my special 62nd Dinosaur edition, which I could be doing on one of the following three bad Dinosaur themed films: CARNOSAUR, TAMMY AND THE T-REX and THEODORE REX. Which one will it be? Vote on the poll which will be posted on soon!
