This movie made my stomach hurt from laughing so much and I regret none of it! The idea of Robot Cops running around taking down criminals was awesome, and I think it will be SO COOL when this happens in the future (I’m assuming so anyways, maybe they’ll turn against us and kill us all.)
Yo Landi and Ninja were absolutely perfect and portrayed their characters brilliantly. They are so cool and bad ass in the real world that they just fit into their movie characters so well. Although Ninja was not a very good dad to Chappie, he was a fantastic person to play that role because of his gangsta-ness.
I was pretty shocked that Chappie was released only two years before Lion… did you SEE how much Dev Patel had changed? He’s HUGE in Lion. I absolutely adored his dorky character and thought he was a fantastic choice to play the nervous tech geek.
Gangsta Chappie was my favorite because what’s better then hearing a robot say “F**k Mother” numerous times? Nothing, it’s hilarious.
Image Engine was the company who made Chappie (and the other robots, including The Moose) come alive on screen, they’re the ones who did the visual effects for the robots. I thought that Chappie looked so realistic and I was impressed at the amount of detail in even just his face.
I think the best part about a movie like this is that there’s a little part of us that thinks “Oh no this is the future”, and it’s not like it’s in the far “one day in a million years this’ll happen”. It could be tomorrow or next week or next month.
We have pretty amazing technology now that me and you don’t actually know about yet, so WHO KNOWS?! MAYBE SOMEWHERE ON SOME MILITARY BASE OR SOMETHING THERE ARE ROBOT COPS JUST CHILLING WAITING FOR THE DAY THEY CAN BE RELEASED INTO THE WORLD.
Or maybe that won’t happen for a million years…
Thanks for reading 🙂
