There was a couple of things that made the character more human that wasn't used. I can't remember exactly what the scenes were, I just remember wondering why they weren't in.
I have to say it didn't quite have the third great act that RoboCop (1987) had and, by the time I was into the second one, I knew I was tired of it, plus David Cronenberg had asked me to do Naked Lunch (1991) with him, so I was happy to do it, and was happy to be gone.
Aside from the action-adventure, the corruption, corporate machinery gone berserk and so on, the heart of all this is a morality tale. It's like "Beauty and the Beast", or the Tin Man of "The Wizard of Oz". It's a great little jewel of a human story.
