Continuity mistake: Dick Jones brags (admits?) to Robocop, "I had to kill Bob Morton because he made a mistake. Now, it's time to erase that mistake" while Robocop is crouched on the ground, looking away from him from across the room. In the playback, Jones is facing the camera as though it were videotaped or filmed in a studio. (01:10:50 - 01:35:10)
Revealing mistake: After the one bad guy crashes into the giant vat of Toxic Waste, hardly any of the liquid from the container spills out for the first two shots. Then a few cuts later, almost all of it pours from the back of the truck. Judging by the size of the hole it left, more liquid should have been coming out around the truck, not just through it. (01:29:00)
Continuity mistake: When Clarence is talking with the other drug dealer in the warehouse, tempers flare and guns are drawn. The Asian gang member racks his shotgun (thus loading the weapon). Wouldn't he have kept it loaded? Anyway a few seconds later Robocop enters and the same Asian guy racks his shotgun again and no shell is ejected. (01:22:55)
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where all the OCP executives are listening to Dick Jones presenting ED-209, and while the "old man" starts talking about Delta City, watch when the camera moves along backwards to show the city model he's talking about and you can see reflected on several TV sets that are on the wall both the camera operator and another man behind him, perhaps the boom operator. (00:09:25)
Continuity mistake: When Robocop is at OCP trying to save "the old man," Jones is wearing a black suit while he is holding him hostage. After he releases him (as Robocop shoots him) the suit is grey, then turns black again as he crashes through the window and falls to his death. (01:35:30)
