In Johannesburg, the police department reduced the high rating of criminality using robots from the Tetravaal Company, designed by the engineer Deon Wilson. The former military Vincent Moore is envious of Deon, since he has developed another project called Moose, but neither Tetravaal nor the police department is interested. Deon has just developed an Artificial Intelligence but the Tetravaal's CEO Michelle Bradley asks him to abort the project. Deon decides to bring the damaged Robot 22 that was sent to be crushed to test his A.I. However he is kidnapped by the criminals Ninja, Yo-Landi and Amerika that want him to stop the robot cops. When they see the damaged robot in the van, they force Deon to program it to heist banks with them and they call it Chappie. However, Chappie acts like a child and need to be trained to learn and grow. Meanwhile Vincent follows Deon and plots an evil scheme to activate his robot.

Journalist: Historically when we look at evolution, it's not surprising that Chappie's left turn happened.
Professor: It's too early to tell how this is all going to play out. I didn't believe this would happen in my lifetime, but it is happening.

User Reviews

Very worth watching...
13 March 2015 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

I found the movie highly entertaining and thought-provoking, funny and distressing at the same time.

Couldn't help but think about how true this story is: your child associates with the "wrong crowd" and no matter how much you try, what you say, s/he is going down a bad path. All you can hope for is that they'll find their real self before it's too late...

I usually don't like violent movies, or films about gangsters, druggies, and such. This has all these components in it - however, it was very clear to me, that I would never, ever want to live in a world as depicted there. (Not like most other movies with these topics, where that attitude towards life is idolized and glorified...)

Never mind what the critics say, watch it yourself - what have you got to loose? 2 hours of your life. I think, these 2 hours will be much better spent there, than watching any mainstream TV...
