In the near future, crime is patrolled by a mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.
In the year 2154, the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth. A man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.
In 2028 Detroit, when Alex Murphy, a loving husband, father and good cop, is critically injured in the line of duty, the multinational conglomerate OmniCorp sees their chance for a part-man, part-robot police officer.
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.Written by

When Yolandi hugs Chappie before the Moose attack, she places her hand directly over a blade stuck to Chappie's magnetic chest and it flexes like it's made of rubber. See more »
Historically, when we look at evolution, it's not surprising that uh... Chappie's left turn... uh... happened.
It's too early to tell how this is all going to play out. I didn't believe that this would happen in my lifetime, but... but it is happening.

I was an hour into this film on Pay-Cable when my wife walked in.
What are you watching? she asked.
I told her.
What is it about? she asked
Watch it and see.
So she did for about 5 minutes.
Then she wanted to know WHY? I was watching it.
That was a toughie
Its got Jackman and Weaver. It is by a famous director. Its got strange accents. I can't find the remote
But, and I am being honest with you, the look in her eyes told me that she was having doubts about the man she married.
So I tried a different tack.
I am watching because I cannot believe anyone would deliberately make a film this bad with such a stupid plot and stupid characters and an A-list cast. I mean, a character who was carjacked by killers actually tells them that he doesn't want a confrontation, this with a shotgun in his face, but he insists on coming back tomorrow to play with his robot.
She accepted that excuse as reasonable.
I am hoping you will too
