Corrected entry: The hospital scene was shot with real doctors and other hospital staff. They improvised the whole dialogue and everything else as well.
Corrected entry: In the first scene of the movie a suspect says to Sgt. Reed "make it aggravated assault and I can make bail in cash now" to which Reed responds "listen pal, your client's a scumbag, you're a scumbag and scumbags see the judge on Monday morning, now get out of my police station and take laughing boy with you" and then he proceeds to throw them out the door. If he wasn't able to make bail then he would not have been able to leave the police station.
Corrected entry: Robocop is seen scanning the police directory for information on Emil. This leads him to Clarence's rap sheet, including the charges for murdering Murphy. When he checks the file for Murphy, the photo shows him wearing his Detroit Police uniform (the OCP symbol is plainly visible on his shoulder). Given that Murphy wasn't even on the Detroit Police force for a day, let alone in the Police HQ for more than an hour, how is a casual shot of him in uniform in the HQ lobby on file possible?
Corrected entry: Murphy shoots a guy who pulls a gun twice in the chest. The second bullet passes through him and smashes the TV behind him. But the guy wasn't standing in the right position for the bullet to hit the TV. He should've been standing a little to the left. From where he was standing the bullet would've just hit the wall.MikeH
Corrected entry: In the scene where Robocop is using jars of baby food for target practice, Lewis is helping him use his L.E.D. targeting to be accurate. However, Robocop does not have his helmet with the L.E.D. on when he his shooting. Robocop does not have L.E.D. targeting in his eye balls. In the beginning of the movie, it shows that the L.E.D. comes strictly from his helmet.
Corrected entry: When Clarence Boddicker barges inside and disables Bob by shooting in his thigh, he is seen to be pulling out a Disc, possibly a Video CD, from Dick Jones and loading it into the hi-tech console. If you notice closely here, the video feed appears the very moment the disc is pushed in, giving very little time for the machine to scan it's tracks, even the most advanced machine of that time should be taking around 20 seconds to display or play something.There is no connection between the Disc brought by Clarence and the feed played on the multiple TV sets.sriram_r_2009
Corrected entry: When they're killing Murphy they're shooting at him at point blank range (6 or 7 feet) with shotguns. Murphy just stands in one spot and twitches in pain from the shotgun blasts. However the force of one shotgun blast at that range would be sufficient to knock Murphy to the ground, and probably even send him skittering across the floor a few feet.RJR99SS
Corrected entry: When Robocop is first revealed, he is exactly as tall as Bob Morton (he can look directly in his eyes as we see it from Robocop's view). When Robocop is in the police station for the first time (walking in the police station lobby, then facing Bob Morton) he is a head taller than Morton. In the shooting range, he is about 7 centimetres shorter than he was in the lobby. And so on through the entire film.
Corrected entry: When Robocop tries to arrest Dick Jones in the OCP tower, he goes in with his pistol holstered, yet when Robocop tries to shoot Jones, there's no sound effect to show he unholstered the pistol. The scene I am referring to is when Robocop and Jones are alone in Jones' office, not the end of the movie.
Corrected entry: Just after RoboCop has arrested Clarence, we see the police officers arguing. There is a shot of Lewis and the doors we see behind her are clear, no one is there or near them. A second later RoboCop and Clarence bust through the doors. How did they get into the hall that fast? (01:04:56)Padzter
Corrected entry: Near the film's end, Dick is giving a presentation to the OCP board about ED-209 replacing Detroit Police officers. The board claps midway through his speech, and you can see "the Old Man" start to get up and open his mouth. He then looks to the person next to him and sits down quickly, as if missing a cue and forgetting that Dick has more lines.
Corrected entry: When Robocop is in the convenience store about to arrest the guy robbing the store, the robber shoots Robocop several times with a machine gun. Robocop walks up, grips the end of the gun, and bends it down. Basic physics dictate that either the robber would be lifted up or the gun would be prised out of his hands rather than the gun barrel bending, unless the robber weighs a ton and has an amazingly strong grip.
Corrected entry: After Murphy dies, the screen goes black and there is a very cool sequence of scenes from RoboCop's point of view. In one of them, though, a female Security Concepts/OCP suit says, "Bring in the LED" and a green light-grid covers the screen. A technician then "secures" each corner with a screwdriver, but as he does each screw, the grid gets progressively closer to the screen, until it has disappeared. What kind of device would move each time a corner is tightened?rbryant73
Corrected entry: During the botched demonstration of the ED-209 in the boardroom near the start of the film the ED-209 should not have been loaded with live ammunition as this was only a demonstration of its ability to recognize criminals. If the demonstration had been on a firing range or outside it would have made sense but to have loaded it for a showing in a board room beggars belief.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the thugs are testing their new heavy weapons, one bangs on the roof of the car and says, "Mount up. "If you watch closely, when he hits the roof of the car, the rear view mirror falls off the windshield.
