When the narrator explains that Barrett Coldyron's papers are being given to his nephew Brett Coldyron at Oxford University, Brett is standing next to the Perkins Chapel and Bridwell Library at Southern Methodist University in University Park, Texas. See more »
It's apparent that the footage of Coldyron hiding his pistol and punching the lookout were filmed at a completely different location than the rest of the convenience store sequence. The ice machine is a different color and in a different position, the newspaper machines are in front of a brick wall rather than a bay window, there is a pair of pay phones rather than a single phone, and the tanks marked "MINNOWS" are gone.

There are bad movies that are funny. Bad movies that are boring. Bad movies that are offensive. And then there are bad movies that are just plain incompetent. You can't get angry at these movies, because it's obvious they were made by people who simply didn't have the talent or the budget to make something even halfway decent. "R.O.T.O.R" is one such movie. You know where you stand right from the beginning, where you can spot the most ludicrously mismatched day-and-night shots since "Plan 9 From Outer Space". Thankfully, the "filmmakers" don't take themselves too seriously, as is immediately evident by the continuous flow of campy and corny dialogue (about half of which is hard to understand anyway, due to its mumbled delivery). The leading actor gives an amazingly narcotized performance...and as for R.O.T.O.R., well, if Robocop had been so inept he wouldn't have lived to be in the sequels. I'd give it 0.5 stars out of 4.
