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)
9.7/10.One of the best science fiction movies of the 80's.Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, and Kurtwood Smith were great.I found Clarence Bodickker to be one of the best and most chilling movie villains of the 80's.I'd rank him up there with Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Chucky as one of the best of that decade.This became an instant sci fi classic as it showed the idea of making man more machine even at the risk of him losing his soul.Peter Weller plays the character superbly.You can see his humanity struggling to overcome the cyborg part of him.This alone makes the movie excellent.Nancy Allen's presence is great as she tries to help him remember his true self.
Question: When Robocop is about to arrest Jones, he suddenly feels his system malfunctioning. Jones then explains that Directive 4 is used to shut him down if he attempts to arrest a senior officer of OCP. Why did Jones put this directive into Robocop? At the time nobody knew he was working with Boddicker.
