>STILL AN IRONHEAD: ROBOCOP 2
With the novelty gone, the Detroit cop turned cyborg—played under that clunky suit by Peter Weller—must survive on charm. But every time a scene starts to suggest a hint of wit or sensibility, director Irvin Kershner can't resist the urge to blow something up or mangle someone. Nancy Allen is back as Weller's human partner, and she lusts futilely after his chassis as they stalk a drug dealer who's eventually turned into a robocrook. Weller seems headed for the scrap heap a number of times, but don't get your hopes up. (Orion)
