YMMV / RoboCop: Prime Directives

  • Dork Age: It was intended by the creators to pull the franchise out of the one it's been in with RoboCop 3, The Series, and Alpha Commando, but many fans felt that despite the return to the dark tone of the first two movies, it didn't help.
  • Narm: How both Page Fletcher and Maurice Dean Wint moved in the suits were seen as many fans as ridiculous.
  • Narm Charm: As earnestly bad as a lot of the things about the miniseries are, you can't help but enjoy how completely over-the-top and unrealistic it gets, even by RoboCop standards.
  • Special Effect Failure: Most of the effects are pretty lame, but special mention goes to a scene in "Crash and Burn" where RoboCable's butt-plate is barely attached (it must have come loose when they were wrestling in the zen pond).
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: Many fans reacted negatively to Page Fletcher as Murphy. Among the reasons were the fact that he was shorter than most of the other cast members or even the other actors to play the role (whereas both Peter Weller and Robert John Burke were tall and Richard Eden as of average height) and how Fletcher moved in the suit.
