Originally aired as a four-part miniseries on Canada's Space cable network, Robocop: Prime Directives picks up after the events of 1993's Robocop 3 and was released straight-to-video in the U.S. as four seperate features. The first in the series, Robocop: Prime Directives - Dark Justice, introduces fans to Page Fletcher, who takes over the role of Robocop from Robert John Burke who played the character when Peter Weller left the series after 1990's Robocop 2. Ten years after first acquiring his cyborg body, an aging Robocop must face the fact that his now-grown son is an executive for OCP. Meanwhile, a mysterious group called The Trust has plans to reprogram Robo to do their evil biddings. Robocop: Prime Directives - Dark Justice is followed by Robocop: Prime Directives - Meltdown, Robocop: Prime Directives - Resurrection, and Robocop: Prime Directives - Crash and Burn. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
Very low budget and none of the original cast. The new RoboCop is just a guy in a suit who didn't spend much time learning to move like a machine. Though the writers retained the original social commentary on political correctness and the all-consuming nature of TV, they also managed to add a perhaps coincidental picture of the new face of terrorism. Maybe not quite as bad as RoboCop 3, it falls far short of the original and the first sequel.
