On the other hand, Robocop, a movie with no pretensions of realism, contains a wonderfully accurate portrayal of a database search. Robocop sees a face on the street. He plugs himself into a computer and searches through mug shots until he finds the face. From that he gets a name, and then a list of known accomplices. He searches through the accomplices, finds one that he recognizes, and reads his criminal record, which includes suspicion of murder. He looks up the murder victim, and finds his own name and face. This 30-second scene offers a good overview of what computers can and can't do and how people use them.
