Movie Review: "Chappie"


So the latest Neil Blomkamp sci-fi dystopian future film is out: Chappie. I'm really thinking Neil doesn't see a bright future for South Africa!

It stars Sharlto Copley (of course) as Chappie, Dev Patel (as the creator), Ninja (as Ninja), Yo-Landi Visser (as Yo-Landi), Jose Pablo Cantillo (as Amerika), and Hugh Jackman (as the jealous creator).

What happens when a robot designed for police work in the tough streets of Johannesburg, is reprogrammed with actual artificial intelligence, but raised from "infancy" by criminals?

Hi-Jinks!




Let me first warn you, once you accept that the company which makes the robots is the most inept in the history of humanity, truly accept it, you can enjoy this movie.

It has a lot deeper philosophical things going on here if you pay attention closely, but it's still a FUN WATCH.

QBF Rating: 3.5/5

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
