These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way.

Flanderization: The Old Man of OCP is, in the first film, something of an occasionally eccentric CEO of the company who reacts to the butchering of one of his employees with a "I'm very disappointed." but is otherwise presented as a if not benevolent then decent enough individual who wants to make Detriot better and plans to do so by not only redeveloping Old Detriot into Delta City, but also funding public services and the like.

What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Children everywhere loved RoboCop as much as their parents did, even though the black comedy and political satire went over their heads; they just saw him as a cool superhero who fights bad guys. Apparently their parents didn't notice that all the hyper-violence, gore, sexual themes and depictions of hard drug use might not be appropriate for children, judging by the number of people today who saw it at that age when it first came out.
