A fantastic mix of dark comedy and science fiction.
Being a huge fan of District 9, I had high expectations for CHAPPiE, I am also a fan of Die Antwoord's weird music. After seeing the movie, I can say without a doubt in my mind that this is one of the most fun movies I've ever seen. Die Antwoord has gotten a lot of negative criticism regarding their "douchey" performances, what some people don't understand is that, that was the point of the movie, at least in my opinion. Movies where you root for the better of two evils rarely come around, and this is one of them, however, some people may be turned off by the crass behavior of Yolandi Visser and Ninja. I really liked the character of CHAPPiE, his story was surprisingly tragic and it was a very relatable underdog story. Sharlto Copley was really good in his motion capture work for CHAPPiE, and his voice work. Hugh Jackman as the villain was a little distracting, he pulled off a menacing villain, but he was a little too goofy at times, one scene in particular was very far-fetched, but he was still very entertaining to watch. Neil Blomkamp took some interesting directions with the story, it was very unpredictable. The dark comedy aspect of this movie is not advertised for the trailers at all, which is disappointing, because it's a very major part of the movie. All I'm saying is, know what you're getting into This movie is entertaining as hell, and is definitely worth checking out. 4.5/5
