Paul’s review of CHAPPiE

CHAPPiE was released on March 6th, 2015 and is set in the future where a high crime rates in Johannesburg, South Africa leads to the introduction of state-of-the-art armour plated robots. These succeed where their human counterparts have failed. So pleased with their success the programmer decides he wants to make them more human-like and updates their software with AI capabilities. His boss however does not agree. All would be fine until a gang of thugs decide they have had enough of the new police presence and decide they want to kidnap the programmer.

The movie is one that I found to be fairly original and in the most part I enjoyed it. The AI robot was well done and funny with the other cast being believable in their selected roles. Hugh Jackman was good in his role as the programmer’s rival in the company and Sigourney Weaver made a good boss. The thing that let it down was the amount of foul language, some of it I could take but it became tiresome as the story went on. I enjoyed the movie and would give it 3 out of 5.

    Foul, foul, foul, but of course they are all from England and moved to South Africa so I guess that is why there is so much foul language. I didn’t really notice it because I was interested in the robot… I will have to watch it again I suppose, but 3 out of 5 seems right.

    This was a decent movie and I must admit that I had seen it before. The robot Chappie was done well and is a good example of the “Nature or Nurture” argument. Sigourney Weaver was great, as always. I didn’t recognize Hugh Jackman as the bad guy. The story line was interesting and fairly well done, director-wise. I agree the foul language was off-putting but I suppose it was necessary to establish the characters.
