ROBOCOP MOVIE GOOFS

ROBO TWISTS HIS ARM
Robocop is going thru the archive room and shows his interface needle. But when robo turns around to input the blade, the one holding the dummy arm turns the wrist in the wrong direction! Even though heīs a cyborg his arm is not supposed to spin around like that!

HEY DONīT TOUCH ME
When Dick Jones has Robocop fall to his knees in his office when Directive 4 kicks in, Robocop puts his hand on the desk right over Dick Jones's hand. Dick pulls his hand out from under RoboCop's but it's obviously a mistake and it looks very un-natural.

BARREL BENDING
For Robocop to be able to bend the barrel of the gun, the man holding the gun must be strong enough to bend it himself.


BOUNCING DUMMY
When the official is blown out of the window of City Hall, he falls out of screen. During the replay of the scene for the news immediately afterwards, the dummy's feet are seen popping up into view as he bounces up.

VISABLE BLOOD PACKS
When ED-209 is being demonstrated for the first time and goes out of control, when the young executive is being shot, repeatedly, by ED-209, you can see packets of red paint strapped to his back, under his suit.

MAGIC WINDSHIELD
When Murphy and Lewis are chasing the villains in the beginning, one of the bad guys shoots the windshield of the cop car, leaving a hole and messing up the glass. Not even a second later, the windshield is fine.

NO ORDINARY PC
When you see Robocop's computer system start up, it loads command.com before it loads the BIOS. If Robocop is controlled by and ordinary PC in any way (he must be in some way since he loads command.com), the BIOS must be loaded before command.com.

GUNS GUNS GUNS
In the car chase scene Murphy draws his SIG-Sauer pistol and asks Lewis for her gun, she gives him the HK P9S in her holster. Later in the abandoned industrial building she draws a SIG pistol on a urinating man, Murphy also draws a SIG pistol on a man watching TV (as if a HK pistol and a SIG pistol turned into two SIG pistols). Later in the target shooting training area Lewis is shown firing a SIG pistol again.

GUNS GUNS GUNS 2
Clarence Boddicker puts a silencer on his Desert Eagle but that wouldn't work because none of the chamberings for the Desert Eagle are subsonic (it would silence the escaping gases but the supersonic velocities of the bullet fired would produce a "crack" sound.

WHERE DID THIS LEGS COME FROM?
In the very end when Murphy twirls the gun and puts it in the holster you can in the widescreen version see a pair of legs. When we see murphy again there is no man there.

STRANGE RECORDING 1
When Robocop playbacks his recording of Clarence Boddicker spilling his guts about Dick Jones, the words he says are different than the ones that were recorded.


STRANGE RECORDING 2
When he plays back Dick Jones saying he killed Bob Morton, the tone of his voice is changed, and he's looking straight forward. While he recorded it, Jones' tone of voice was calmer, and he was looking to his left at Robocop.


QUICK CHANGEOF SUIT
When Robocop is at OCP trying to save "the old man," Jones is wearing a black suit while he is holding him hostage. After he releases him (as Robocop shoots him) the suit is grey, then turns black again as he crashes through the window and falls to his death.


THE CAR SUX
After the cops have gone on strike, and we see the bad guy entourage meet downtown, Clarence gets a call as to the location of Robocop. He slams the door to his 6000 SUX and you can see the review mirror fall right off.


GLASS BREAKING
In the Drug factory,the second time Clarence hits the glass, the glass breaks before he hits it. You can see at the bottom of the glass how it starts to break.


ARE WE IN TEXAS?
In the scene where Murphy and Lewis are chasing the silver van down the street, in the background you will see them pass, on their left, a building with "Texas Industries" sign painted on it. A moment later, in a scene where Emil is shouting towards the back of the van, you see the same building ahead of them through the windshield, but this time it's on the other side of the street (and they haven't passed it yet). By the way, shouldn't it be "Michigan Industries?" ;-)

REFLECTION
When Clarence Boddicker is driving his car, you can see a reflection of the camera

CRAZY WOMAN?
When Mr. Kinney is shot, a blonde lady in the background is seen smiling. Either this is a goof or that is one sick lady!!!

SEE TROUGH HEAD
When RoboCop is being chased by ED209, for a split second RoboCop's head is see-through

SHADOW
In the scene where the crazy guy is holding the mayor hostage, a hostage negotiator says something to Robocop. This scene is shot from Robocop's P.O.V. but if you look you will see a shadow of the camera on the guy, rather than a shadow of Robocop

SOUND SYNC 1
The soundtrack during the ER scene where they are incubating Murphy is ahead of it's self by one step. For example, you hear the voice over say, "You're in," just as they insert the tube into Murphy's mouth. The next scene is actually where that line should be heard, when you see someone listening to his chest with the stethoscope. The entire voice-over is off pace with the action on the screen.

SOUND SYNC 2
When Clarence Boddicker is killing Bob Morton, you see him shoot him in the leg once. If you listen closely, he fires four additional shots, but only three are shown hitting Morton.
