    Your Opinions and Comments

    7 / 10
    Content: Robocop 2 really isn`t as bad movie as they say - just like it`s predecessor, it takes note on the events of the period. Whereas Robocop took a note on political satire, Robocop 2 handles on the drug problem and on how problems are handled with shooting rather than talking. On the other hand, if we put all the metaphors aside, we have a decent action movie. If you find a movie entertaining, it`s good, right?

    Video: Even that the video quality is good, free from any clear dirt or grain, it is really hard to tell any details when seeing the film with an old 4:3 TV.

    Audio: Same problem as above, so I`ll skip this part.

    Extras: A lack of extras is a real pity. I would have liked to see some sort of commentary track or even documentary on the making of the movie, but all we get is a theatrical trailer.

    Overall: A good movie ruined by general opinion, and a good DVD ruined by the lack of extras.
