      Deep story brought out by main character

      Saw this movie in the theater and had high expectations since it was directed by the same director as District 9 and also had Shartlo Copley involved. This movie did not disappoint and is really brought out by Copley. His portrayal of the title character, despite being hidden by CGI, causes you to relate to an innocence that you had as a child but also how easy it can be to have influences that shape your life. There are a few lagging moments but again are made up for by the subtle development of the main character. Visually the movie is nice and will play well on HD. While the sound is good, it is more rock music rather than a typical musical score. It is not a family film and should really be reserved for those at least 16+ with the maturity to handle the social themes and violence.

      The movie "Chappie" deserves a R rating as it's full of filthy language and degrading. It has no redeeming value and is apparently made to the degraded social values of some of the young people today. People are killed left and right. Apparently, the movie was filmed in South Africa and the English language is butchered so badly in the movie that captioning has to be used for some of the dialog. I thought the inventor of the artificial intelligence being might be able to make a difference in the movie, but his actions toward the bad guys were unbelievable. Horrible horrific movie and not recommended for a mature and responsible audience. I rated it one star, but it doesn't even deserve that.

      Nice concept but language may be too vulgar

      I was looking forward to watching this movie because of the concept being explored. A.I., intelligent AI to be exact. they approached in an interesting way. If you have seen District 9 you will this has the same feel but not too documnetary-ish. The guy in District 9 who becomes a Prawn serves as the voice of Chappie, but i would have liked if the language was toned down a bit. made enjoying this movie a bit off. The whole movie could have done a better of job of utilizing the concept of Artificial Intelligence when portraying the good versus evil aspect in the movie ie:. Man controlled robots and actually thinking humanoid robots. Kinda felt like they were trying to hard and fell short.

      I quite liked it. Chappie was not what I expected and is a new favorite. It makes you think about what we teach children by the way we live our lives and explores some other heavy social themes, but it's not heavyhanded in tone. I think Ninja and Yolandi's characters had just the right touch of vulnerability that allowed you to emphasize with them and not write them and the film off before it really gets going. The film is made with a sense of humor that balances out the dystopian setting and serious themes. Chappie the robot is perfect and the rest of the cast is solid, especially Dev Patel. Check it out, it's good!

      We watched this movie as a family, but only one of us enjoyed it. It was loud and noisy with some of the worst music I've ever heard. The characters were constantly screaming at each other and never spoke in a normal tone. Additionally, the characters were all equally unlikable and I was praying they would all die painful deaths before the credits finally rolled. I don't know anybody I would recommend this movie to; the only reason I gave it two stars is because the cinematography was exceptionally well done. Other than that, there are simply no redeeming qualities. (FYI: We all enjoyed District 9)

      The movie Chappie was awesome! My 9 year old son had seen the previews on tv and wanted to see it. We opted to wait to see it until it came out on dvd due to it being rated "R". Luckily we did wait. My husband and I watched it first alone. It was a great movie filled with tons of action. The whole story was better than I ever expected it would be. After seeing it though, I decided it was a little too violent for my 9 year old to watch. It is a great addition to our dvd library and will be watched again! And our 9 year can watch it when he gets older!

      I really like this movie, it touches all the emotions throughout. Like a roller coaster, from happy, sad, angry, and back to happy. Not sure how too many people could genuinely dislike this movie. As for another reviewer saying this is not a good Hugh Jackman movie...that's nonsense. He actually makes you dislike him by being bad, we rarely ever see him as a "villain" . He's also not what you'd consider a "main character" he's important to the movie, but only here and there. If you're on the fence about seeing this movie, just watch it.
