Although dialogue identifies R.O.T.O.R. as a Dallas Police Department project, no actual Dallas police vehicles, buildings or uniformed officers are featured in the film. The end credits give thanks to the police departments of the surrounding communities of Addison, Coppell, Hickory Creek, and Lake Dallas for providing officers, uniforms, and vehicles, and Division Headquarters and the Tactical Operations Lab are private commercial office buildings in the Dallas area.

A Robot cop breaks loose from unsuspecting scientific rulers, hell bent and half programmed the robot cop goes on an unstoppable, technologically advanced killing spree.
This movie is hot. It is of poor quality and high entertainment. If you merely want to kick back and watch some good unadulterated nonsense this is your picture, if you are trying to expand your mind and learn more about the world of robotics, than watch Short Circuit, R.O.T.O.R is much too technical for you.
Final word: big guns, motorcycle riding lunatic robot cops, poor voice overs and shallow character depth render this movie highly potent and watchable (maybe not RE-watchable, but you should subject yourself to it at least once in your life).
An action movie of superb cheese factor. If you've been recently let down by "Shotgun" (1989), than do yourself a favor and refresh your pallet with what good inane action is supposed to be all about...watch R.O.T.O.R
