Robocop 3

Continuity mistake: When Robocop is rebooting after being repaired, he is imaging going through a wormhole of sorts. He sees his wife there. Then, his wife morphs into Lewis. Then, it morphs into Lazarus. However, the mole near Jill Hennessy's mouth is on the wrong side in that shot.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, while the Rehabs recruit gang members and the punks are struggling with the cops and deputized citizens, the sun changes in several shots.


Plot hole: When Bertha and the gang enter the Police Ordnance depot, they find an ED-209 waiting for them. It threatens to shoot them, but instead of running, they just stand there. They didn't know the girl was some kind of computer nerd that could reprogram ED-209, but for nearly 20 seconds, they just stand there.


Other mistake: After officer Lewis dies, the camera close-up shows her breathing. There is also eye movement.

Other mistake: The explosion at the gates to the Police Ordnance depot is utterly ridiculous. They blow up steel gates with dynamite, but the resulting explosion is a fuel type flame. It's metal they are blowing up, not a combustible material.


Continuity mistake: RoboCop bends down to pick up the map at his feet, and he does so by scooping his hand underneath it and lifting it with his thumb and index finger, as it is lying flat on the ground. Yet when the camera angle changes to show RoboCop correcting his posture, the map is now rolled up and he is holding it in his hand, which is now in a fist position. (01:20:22)


Continuity mistake: Watch the subtitles in the police chase against the battered yellow van. In one scene where the two gentlemen are narrowly escaping the hit, the young officer says "ease it up" but the subtitles say "jesus".

Seitz: Sir, what about our friend Coontz?
Paul McDaggett: Well, if we'd let him live, we'd have to have paid him.
