Robocop: Last Stand 2 (September 2013)

Robocop 02 rev

All of a sudden, the Robocop 3 references are a lot clearer. Grant is in the precarious position of having very familiar scenes or very familiar lines–if anyone else, like me, is familiar with Robocop 3–coming from different characters than in the film.

In other words, it’s becoming about how Frank Miller’s script was changed instead of the script–and story–itself.

There’s the added complication this issue has a lot of returning cast from the second film–and that Avatar adaptation of Miller’s 2 script. It’s mired in continuity, so much so when Robocop actually does get busy doing things, it seems off, like Grant is just throwing him in.

There’s excellent character stuff with Robocop and his lady doctor. Öztekin gets how to draw those scenes as well as the action. He even gives Robocop Peter Weller’s lips.

It’s okay, but too interesting as an adaptation.
