Capitalizing the "c" in Robocop is idiotic. I am looking at the DVDs of ALL seven movies right now. The only time "cop" is capitalized is when all the letters are. Otherwise, they spell it "Robocop." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.69.152.178 (talk) 00:57, 2 April 2011 (UTC)


Year movie takes place:[edit]

Recent change(s) placed the movie as taking place in 2014. There is nothing in the movie itself to indicate that this is the year the movie takes place in. The book suggests it taking place in the 2040s oor 2050s and the TV series suggests sometime in the 1990s but as for the movie itself? Nothing in it tells us the year. Edited the opening to the plot summary to remove the reference to the movie taking place in 2014. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.48.3.149 (talk) 22:29, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Our RoboCop Remake[edit]

There's a (partially NSFW) scene-for-scene (crowd-sourced) fan remake called "Our RoboCop Remake".[1] --82.136.210.153 (talk) 00:14, 2 August 2014 (UTC)

Fault in the chapter filming[edit]

In the chapter "filming", the following can be read:

"walks outside to electrocute himself to wipe all directives"

But did not this occur in Robocop 2, and not in Robocop? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.65.227.85 (talk) 11:55, 20 September 2014 (UTC)

In the "Filming" section of the article, the sentence "One scene, as RoboCop walks outside to electrocute himself to wipe all directives, shows the One Shell Plaza in downtown Houston in the background (a white building with a tall mast on top.)" refers to a scene in the film's sequel, Robocop 2, not the film itself, and should be removed.

Not ambiguous.[edit]

If the primary topic of this term is not the 1987 film, then it is the franchise as a whole (see Star Wars, Star Trek, Planet of the Apes, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). bd2412 T 19:21, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
