Plot hole: The opaque red lined map that Otomo retrieves from his first fight is ridiculous. Why would people who know where the hidden base is be carrying around a map on them (which shows a route so basic that they'd have to be brain-dead not to be able to remember it anyway) just so that conveniently one of their enemies can get it?
Continuity mistake: When the two Ninja robots fight, the robot on the left loses his head before the blade strikes.
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."
Seitz: Sir, what about our friend Coontz?
Paul McDaggett: Well, if we'd let him live, we'd have to have paid him.
Johnson: That's the fourth one this month.
Fleck: Chicken shit! I'd eat a bullet, myself. Less showy.
Splatterpunk #1: Clock it, Jack. Megazone invasion.
Splatterpunk #2: Pop a tranq, hypo-head. Splatterville's ours. Shoot him in the mouth, splatterbrain.
Splatterpunk #1: Cyborg eats bullets, Jack.
Splatterpunk #2: Not tonight, he don't.
Question: Is there any reason why this film was toned down so much in comparison to the previous two films? Much of this film played like a Saturday-morning-cartoon, and less like the gritty and violent predecessors. Just curious as to why this radical (and unnecessary) change was made.
Question: In Robocop 2, Robocop electrocutes himself to remove all the ridiculous directives he was given. When he came back online, even his original prime directives were gone. In this movie he was given his first three prime directives back but, why would the fourth prime directive be reinstalled?
