RoboCop, RoboCop II, RoboCop III ???

At the end of Robocop III, it was easy to see that the movie was terminated with the possibility of a sequel. Not making the mistake of the Alien series, we were spared that torture, and the movie studios let a good thing end gracefully. This is not really a “tough guy” film, like Rambo or Die Hard. It is more appealing to the Marxist-Socialist types in America, in that it suggests that corporate America generates the evil that oppresses the freedom loving poor of this world, and that this corporate entity either lives in bed or pressures the government to do wrong. Robocop was a cyborg, invented by a corporate firm, contracted to defend the streets of Detroit. Already, the film becomes a no-brainer. Detroit, even in the 1980’s, was not a city worth defending. All the same, the creators of Robocop attempt to use this half-policeman half-robot to their advantage. Robocop II and III show the development of more sophisticated Robocops, yet our hero, Robocop I, continues to find a way to gain ultimate victory. The action is good and the story line is reasonably well written to allow an absence of predictability and hold ones’ interest; thus the three stars. All in all, not the worst film, and moderately entertaining, though the prevailing message is usually confused.

    I am amazed at how much of the truth about the nature of the social structures of the Trilateral world comes out in movies. The truth is popularized, yet who can hear it? Bob Dylan and Paul Simon brought it to us in song in the ’60s. Then the much-maligned Oliver Stone brought it to us in JFK, CIA MKULTRA mind control in Conspiracy Theory, the power-elite club, Skull and Bones, in Skulls I, II, and III, and now … Robocop!

    Nobody will be able to say they weren’t warned yet the warnings go unheeded by all but a remnant. Few can read the signs of the times …
