Storyline

In the near future, Indian born Deon Wilson (Dev Patel), is a high ranking executive in a Robotic Police Force company. When he comes up with an idea to make a self conscious robot named Chappie to protect better, his higher-ups disapprove it. Nonetheless, he makes it and when the company finds out, scraps the robot. When 2 small time criminals planning a $200 million heist find Chappie, they kidnap Deon and force him to program Chappie to assist them in their heist. When power-corrupted military general Vincent (Hugh Jackman) finds out, he rallies all forces to stop Chappie, at any cost that leads to an monumental showdown between Good and Evil.

Clever Film..Wonderful Character Realisation. Yay
7 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolutely Brilliant. I loved every moment of Chappie, who is as engaging as Wall E, yet less predictable. Script/Dialogue is superb, the Action and Plot are seamlessly composed....Wow, kudos to Blomkamp for having such a stark, clear vision of the near future and telling it so well. Jo'berg didn't fare too good, hopefully this was CGI, which I never felt aware of anywhere in Chappie, and which has been ruining Sci-Fi for 20+ years. Excessive action for the sake of action, convoluted plots as a substitution for good writing...The latter 2 are both, happily, absent in this superior film, crafted by a director who is 'scooting' up beside David Lean in my library of Genius Film Making.
