Re: THE TERMINATOR (1984)
Hopefully this isn't too forward of me to post, but here is what James said about "Robocop" when he reviewed "Robocop 3":
"The great thing about the original Robocop(directed by a pre-Basic Instinct Paul Verhoeven) was a tongue-in-cheek attitude coupled with an indefatigable wit. There was action, to be sure, but the script was clever, and it made the old superhero formula seem fresh."
As far as Robocop 2 and 3 are concerned, he thinks Robocop 2 is "plodding and pointlessly violent" while Robocop 3 is "merely a run-of-the-mill superhero movie, complete with comic-book type villains and a plot of limited scope and even more restricted appeal."
