Robocop

Alex Murphy was a regular cop in Detroit. While on an assignment, Alex is shot to death by a brutal street gang in a steel mill. As a result of his death, he bcomes Robocop, a cyborg police officer who fights crime.

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, not only looking away from him from across the room, but also Robocop's eyes are in a vertical position. In the playback, Jones is facing the camera as though it were videotaped or filmed in a studio. (01:10:50 - 01:35:10)
