Storyline

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.

Trivia

The word 'zef' is an Afrikaans slang word, which roughly translates to the English word 'common'. Also means 'uncool' in Afrikaans. It differs from the Australian term 'bogan' and the British term 'chav' in that it is mostly a positive term for oneself, rather than a derogatory term for someone else. It is also not typical of the poorest classes of the society, but rather a mostly white, lower-middle class subculture. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Journalist: Historically, when we look at evolution, it's not surprising that uh... Chappie's left turn... uh... happened.
Professor: 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.

Not a typical Sci-fi, thats what makes it great
14 March 2015 | by (Pune, India) – See all my reviews

The trailer of the movie talks about the black sheep, that is being different, So I would say this one was the black sheep in the world of sci-fi movies.

The story of a robot, which is being depicted in unbiased manner( not robot-as-a-monster or robot-as-an-angel movie) is quiet refreshing. The robot Chappie not just marvels you but make you emotional at times. So be prepared to get your eyes drenched at times. I think these are some of those moments when you feel this is not a sci-fi or action stereotype, but that is what makes it wonderful.

Action cuts are great(very less of them), actor have done wonderful job (especially the lady who acts as Chappies "mommie")

Loved it.

P.S. Don't do on critic reviews, I have no idea why this movie is bashed so much
