In Neill Blomkamp's previous film, _Elysium_ (2013), a Hippo story is mentioned through the film. In _Chappie_ (2015), there is a character named Hippo, whose actions have certain resemblance to the metaphor of Elysium's Hippo story. See more »
When Deon is shot from close distance, there is a noticeable delay between Hippo shooting and the bullet hitting Deon. It seems this effect was triggered manually and not automatically via sound detection. Also lots of smoke from cheap bullet hit pyrotechnics can be seen, as well as a bulge on Deons shirt made by the blood-pack. See more »

Why all the hate for this movie? I understand not liking something, but everyone seems to just TRASH it. Did I see the same movie? I saw an emotional film about innocence and loss. I REALLY don't understand. Sure, maybe the film didn't have the best dialogue or the best acting in the world, but it hit home for me. The VFX were phenomenal, Chappie is the best CGI motion capture I have seen in a long time, the 100% electronic musical score by Hans Zimmer was really unique and fresh, and it has a really great ending. I DON'T UNDERSTAND. If you like Blomkamp's previous films or are remotely interested, please watch it yourself. I think the critics are wrong on this one. I have been thinking for a while about why the reviews are so out there. First off, the trailers are AWFUL. The first to come out was this philosophical "What does it mean to be human?" kinda movie. The TV trailers were "GUNS, EXPLOSIONS, ROBOTS!!!" and it is neither. Think "Little Miss Sunshine" with a robot, that is a more accurate representation. Blomkamp's most underrated film.
