chappieIn the future, the Johannesburg police force is assisted by highly efficient robots created by a brilliant engineer (Dev Patel); when he gives one of them a mind of its own, heā€™s threatened from two sidesā€¦ Based on a short film that Neill Blomkamp made in 2004, this noisy, dystopian sci-fi thriller with a social commentary on the future of artificial intelligence will also remind fans of his previous District 9 and even RoboCop, perhaps a little too much. The story follows familiar patterns, but offers interesting moments as well as some explosive action, and an effective motion-capture performance by Sharlto Copley.

2015-U.S. 120 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Neill Blomkamp. Screenplay: Neill Blomkamp, Terri Tatchell. Music: Hans Zimmer. Cast: Sharlto Copley (CHAPPiE), Dev Patel (Deon Wilson), Ninja (Ninja), Yo-Landi Visser, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Hugh Jackmanā€¦ Sigourney Weaver.

Trivia: Ninja and Visser are also members of a South African rap-rave group, Die Antwoord.
