Robocop 2

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.

Correction: Robocop is not locked to the table, he is secured with huge metal chains. They don't actually show the leg being severed; it is done off camera. Kane's men must have pulled it out from under the chain and dropped it to the floor.

Corrected entry: In the future, Detroit is this absolute hellhole where crime is rampant, police are on strike, all areas are somewhat dangerous and even boy scouts have turned criminal, but when Murphy drives past his former wife's house (presumably in Detroit) near the beginning, the area is nice and tranquil where the kids casually ride bikes up and down and no one even has bars on their windows. Also given the amount of crime in Detroit, why does OCP even care about Robocop's prying behaviour?.

Correction: To answer the first mistake, it could be a gated community with security. To answer the second mistake, he was trying to bring up his old memories - if he became Officer Murphy again, he would cease to be RoboCop, hence no longer under OCP's control.

Bruce Minnick

Corrected entry: When Robocop 2 breaks in on the Mayor's meeting near the end, he lifts the big garage door and walks under. When Robocop walks in, there is a giant hole in the door.

Correction: Simple Cain used the darkness to his advantage during the murder scene so it was in his interest to not destroy the door he had no such considerations leaving the building, after all the door is buckled outwards.


Corrected entry: We see the gatling gun on Kain's arm being fired through walls, vehicles, people, even straight through the side of an armoured van then through bags of money and still kill someone, yet when he uses it on Robocop it doesn't even scratch the finish on Robocop's bodywork.

Correction: If you look at Robocop's lower left chest plate, you can see bullet impact marks.

Sol Parker

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.

Question: When RoboCop is at the hideout, we see several "artifacts" (like the skeleton of Elvis). As he leaves, the camera focuses on something and pans up on it. What is it suppose to be?
