Corrected entry: RoboCop is programmed with prime directives which he must follow. One of the rules, the third one, states that he must uphold the law and yet he crosses a double yellow while driving. The turn signal is not being used either.
Corrected entry: When Robocop 2 is introduced and goes nuts at the press conference at the end of the movie, Robocop enters from the left of Robocop 2 with an rifle. Yet when Robocop starts firing the rifle, he aims to his right instead of his left...meaning that he is missing Robocop 2 by a mile and firing at blank space!
Corrected entry: When Cain drives very close to the pole to make RoboCop hit it, RoboCop gets slammed in the face and falls off the van. When the camera angle changes after the Robovision shot of RoboCop hitting the wall, RoboCop is not actually hanging onto the van. He is just attached to the pole and falls off it. The van is behind him and travelling in a right angle to RoboCop's body. (01:02:19)Padzter
Corrected entry: When RoboCop is hanging on to Cain's truck, he is to the right of Cain, yet when the camera angle changes he is right in front of Cain. When Cain looks and smiles at RoboCop, just before swinging the van, he looks to his right even though RoboCop is supposed to be right in front of him now. (01:01:29)Padzter
Corrected entry: At the start of the film, RoboCop gets out of his car and shoots the guys who are robbing the gun store, and only one survives. When RoboCop goes to interrogate him, watch the bottom of the screen closely, Robo stands on the guys foot. A few moments later when Robo is lifting the guy up in the air, Robo has to stand back a bit, so he can get off the guy's foot and let him rise up.Padzter
Corrected entry: If you look closely at Robocain when he is firing his gatling gun, you will notice that: 1 - it isn't ejecting any spent cases at all and 2 - there is no ammo canister attached to the chain, which is strange since he fired several thousand rounds.
Corrected entry: When Robocop gets cut up, the kid says 'I've heard he's got a brain. I want to see it'. They then just cut his limbs off and return him to the cops. There doesn't seem to be any reason at all not to kill him, and of course he then returns and ruins all their plans. Sure, it furthers the plot, but they could have just scrapped that line and it wouldn't have been a problem.Jon Sandys
Corrected entry: In the first Robocop film, RoboCop took on ED-209 and then he was shot by around 20 police officers for a total of around two minutes of screentime. Although cosmetically damaged, he was still operational and carried on. So how on earth can a little boy easily shoot off his hand with a few short bursts of a machine gun? If it was that easy to shoot his hand off, why didn't Ed or the police do it in the first film, and destroy him bit by bit?Padzter
Corrected entry: Why is RoboCop 2 unable to speak? Surely if RoboCop 2 was to stumble upon a crime it would have to make some form of communication with the perpitratiors. If the makers of the robot bothered to put a computerised image of Cain's face on the robot, then surely they should have made a voice for him too? The digital image of a face is basically useless, and wouldn't have helped much in say a hostage situation or an assault on a building.Padzter
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, Robocop rips Kane's brain out of Robocop 2 and smashes it on the ground. Only after that, the representation of Kane in Robocop 2 then dies. How could Kane, who is the brain, still control or react to his brain being smashed? Shouldn't Robocop 2 have died immediately when the brain was ripped out of him?
Corrected entry: When Robocop goes after Kain in the mill, they shoot off Robocop's hand, pick him up with a magnet, put him on a table and lock his hands and feet down. When they start to cut him up, they cut his leg off and it somehow falls to the floor, even though it was supposed to be locked to the table.
Corrected entry: There's no way a kid could fire a Desert Eagle gun, not even the 357 version - they have a massive amount of recoil.
Continuity mistake: At the start of the movie when the gun store is being robbed, one of them fires a portable rocket launcher at the police car, causing it to roll over and spin. As it comes to a stop just outside the store, it's visible that the driver's side window has been blown out, and the vehicle interior is visible, however when the same guy prepares to fire the bazooka to finish it off, the window has returned and is completely intact.Mercury
