Same director as District 9. This looks like a darker "Short Circuit" . Some interesting themes for sure as with most of Blomkamp's works. Very similar to his "Tempbot" . Hopefully it wont be as ludicrous and poorly delivered as "Elysium" was that movie had so many plot holes I still shake my head at it.

It does look great, sounds like the Director voices the robot chappie too.

I liked elysium , I thought it was quite a smooth film.

actually sharlto copley does the voice of chappie, which is great because he has a very distinct voice. hes the same guy who played wickus in district 9 and the main bad guy (forgot the characters name) in elysium.

he and blomkamp have been very good friends for a while now.

After watching it all I can is WTH?
This should have been a comedy.
The gangsters look more like animal rights protesters.
For some reason the director felt the need to put F--bombs and phallic cartoons as graffiti everywhere possible.
It just fails as a movie, the robot Chappie is occasionally funny but fails to elicit empathy in a worn-out replay of the short circuit movie "Johnnie Five?!!"
Save your money and time.

The gangsters are from the group Die Antwoord. I guess its a South African thing. The group has this entire deconstructed white trash/hip hop aesthetic and have created an entirely fictional subculture with slang/imagery and such.

I too felt the movie was a poor outing for Blomkamp. It makes me pretty hesitant to see his take on the Alien franchise which he is working on. I really liked District 9 but Elysium and Chappie both failed for me. They had potential but something was just off.

They were both too preachy in my opinion.

If I want a sermon I will go to church.

OMG I saw that!! I started sobbing at the part when those hoodlum's started attacking Chappie! They dropped him off and they basically destroyed his mainframe and took his memory stick.

This movie was on s free movie channel last night. Personally I liked it. Chappie got a emotional response from me especially his ear movements reminded me of my dogs ears which can have a lot of emotion.

Basically it's a transhumanism based movie, I find the concept highly interesting. Personally I'd opt for a long does of immortality before going on to the next place.

I was excited to see this movie. The concept seemed intriguing. District 9 was a GOOD movie.

That having been said, what a let down.

I mean, were they intentionally trying to ruin it?

It was almost as though they were making it up as they went along.

I liked it, it wasn't a great movie, by any means, but I enjoyed it. I find Yolandi absolutely captivating, she has that whole raw, innocent yet incredibly aggressive, sexuality thing going on that I thought juxtaposed with CHAPPIE brilliantly. It was a little obvious in most places, I appreciated though the intention of simplicity even if it didn't quite carry it off. I'm not in any hurry to watch it again, but all things considered, I really did like it.

I would recommend the Antonio Banderas movie Automata for those who were expecting more from Chappie.
