Corrected entry: When the looting in the movie is going on and the villains have to go, one of them says something about getting out of here and pounds on the hood of the car. If you look inside at this point you see the rear-view mirror fall off.
Corrected entry: The first time Robocop is revealed (when Bob Morton pulls away the plastic sheet, Johnson says "Go Robo!") he walks forward into clapping crowd. On a monitor to the left you see Robocop turn to the right and walk away to the right, but from Robocop's point of view we see that he is still walking forward into the crowd.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, Lewis brings in an insanely violent prisoner - even though he is handcuffed, he is violent and out of control. At least a dozen male cops watch her struggling with him at the risk of serious injury and not one does a thing to help her! In real life he'd be face down on the floor underneath three or four hefty officers in a second - and remember, in this film the police are even more heavy-handed than in real life.
Corrected entry: During the fight between ED-209 and RoboCop, Dick rings the police and says something like "There's trouble in the tower.". At this point, look VERY carefully at the triangle-shaped ashtray; a black figure moves slightly to the left, pauses, and moves very quickly to the left again. There's also a few other indecipherable things being reflected, but I think that it's the camera crew...
Corrected entry: When Robocop goes to arrest Dick Jones, he drives into the basement parking lot of the OCP building and then takes a long ride in a glass elevator to the top of a very tall skyscraper where Jones' office is located. Later, after being driven out of Jones' office by the ED-209, Robocop escapes into a stairwell and down a flight of stairs. The 209 cannot navigate the stairs and ends up falling down them. As the 209 struggles to upright itself, Robocop staggers down what appears to be only one more flight of stairs before exiting a door where he is suddenly back in the basement parking lot. How did he get back down to the basement so fast?
Corrected entry: It is established early that Robo's armor is titanium laminated with Kevlar, and is shown stopping all kinds of weapons, yet at the end of the movie Clarence drives a spike through the armor like it was simple plastic. Even with the heavy spike he should not have been able to do that.
Corrected entry: ED 209 is a stop motion puppet. There is only one shot of Robo as a puppet, when fighting ED he pushes his right arm up to blow of his left and you can see a crew member had to push the prop up.
Corrected entry: Right after Clarence's gang arrives at the mill Robocop tells Louis that she should leave then he cocks his gun. However he visibly strains while cocking it, he even grimaces in frustration and looks like he's about to swear. So much for his 400 ft-lb grip. It could be argued that this is because he's damaged, however bear in mind later in the film he moves some thousand pound I-beams off himself with his arms, after sustaining even more damage.RJR99SS
Corrected entry: You can see many small pieces of dry ice in the Toxic Waste that pours out of the truck to give the liquid a steam effect.
Corrected entry: When the "melting man" grabs his buddy, you can see part of his hand in the side of the frame a good second or two before he leaps out, as if he is waiting for his cue to go.
Corrected entry: In the car chase scene towards the end between Lewis and Clarence, you can see that Clarence's car hits some kind of bump or piece of debris. This causes his right front hub cab to go flying off and it strikes the camera, as you can see the screen shake ever so slightly and the color seems to get a little lighter, as if they had to switch to a backup camera to keep filming. (I just hope nobody was hurt by the flying hubcap).
Corrected entry: When Leon is dancing at the disco, he appears to be tapped in the back just before he turns around to see RoboCop behind him. Was this a way of signalling him when he should turn around? Probably, as the director, (who is also dancing around in this scene, see trivia section), wouldn't be able to tell him because of the loud music. (00:55:46)Padzter
Corrected entry: Why is the gun used for the original ED-209 demonstration still in the boardroom at least 4 months after this happened? We know it is at least 4 months because at the beginning of the film the OCP chairman says, "In 6 months we begin construction of Delta City..." and when Clarence and Dick are talking in Dick's office, Dick says, "Delta City begins construction in 2 months..."
