Description

Dev Patel and Hugh Jackman star in this action thriller written and directed by Neill Blomkamp. When revolutionary scientist Deon (Patel) awakens his latest creation, a robot with artificial intelligence and the ability to think and feel like a human, his dreams and his nightmares all quickly become his reality. As the robot, Chappie (voice of Sharlto Copley), begins to develop in the same ways a human would, society around him finds it increasingly difficult to accept him into their lives. After Chappie is kidnapped by South African gangsters who wish to do him harm, Deon puts all his efforts into finding his creation and proving to the world that Chappie is not dangerous but merely provides evidence of the next generation of thinking.

"Blomkamp clearly is fascinated with where we are headed as technology moves us into an increasingly dangerous and uncertain future....His latest outing with robotic creatures, CHAPPIE takes us in a different and frequently engaging direction."
Bill Zwecker (5 Mar 2015, )

"[I]t conjures an intriguing world....CHAPPIE wears its sci-fi influences on its sleeve..."

Customer Reviews

Disappointing

Reviewed by on

District 9 was an excellent movie, but Chappie is boring with a bad story and even worse selection of actors. Not worth getting on Blu-ray.
