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.


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.

Trivia: At least two of the characters in RoboCop 3 are based on Frank Miller's, (the film's screenwriter), own comic-book creations. 'Otomo' the cyborg samurai, pays homage to his "Ronin" comic about a masterless samurai whose spirit is reanimated with futuristic biotechnology. 'Bertha Washington', CCH Pounder's freedom fighter in the film, is a reference to Martha Washington, the freedom fighter from Miller's "Give Me Liberty."
