Sex & Nudity

  • A womans breasts are very briefly seen in the beginning locker room scene.
  • A man snorts cocaine from a woman's chest.
  • We also briefly see two men's buttocks in the shower room.
  • A woman is seen topless in the background of a night club but it only lasts one or two seconds and is very hard to see. This is very brief.
  • There is a scene in which two thugs are attempting to rape a young woman. One thug begins to rip off her clothes. Robocop arrives and stops the rape from happenning by shooting the thug's genitals.

Violence & Gore

  • A man is shot by ED-209 with numerous rounds. Close up of multiple bloody bullet impacts on his chest & back. He is then shot repeatedly after falling onto a table with multiple impact wounds. It's EXTREMELY bloody, but absurdly over the top.
  • Two men terrorise and attempt to rape a woman but one gets shot in the crotch by RoboCop and the other surrenders. A bit of blood but not much.
  • Murphy's hand is blown off at close range with a shotgun. He is shown holding the bloody stump while blood pours from the wound. The arm of that same hand is then blown off. This is all done for the amusement of the men shooting him. The band of men finally proceed to fire on him continuously, each with shotguns & machine guns, laughing sadistically. Even though Murphy is shot so extensively, his body is protected with a Kevlar suit which shield his body from the bullets so he only feels the force of the bullets. Because of the Kevlar suit, he survives this attack and one of the men finishes him with a single shot to his head. The back of his skull is visibly blown out. There's a shot of the aftermath of the attack, showing his body surrounded by blood & gore. An incredibly brutal, graphic, and disturbing scene. Even with the Kevlar suit, this can be quite painful to watch.
  • A surgical team attempts to save a wounded officer. There is one gruesome gunshot wound to his chest, the rest of his torso is covered with blood.
  • A man is holding a group of people hostage. We see a man's body, face down, clearly dead from having been shot. There are bloodstains. The man holding the group hostage is pulled through a wall and punched in the face, sending him flying out of a window and falling to his death.
  • A man crashes into a tank full of toxic waste. When he comes out, his skin is melting away. A car then drives into him and he explodes. VERY gruesome, but comically over the top.
  • Men fire explosive rounds at cars & a shop front in a street for amusement.
