  • Blomkamp and his wife and co-writer, Terri Tatchell, stack the deck. Instead of awe, we get "E.T." - aww. show more

  • It’s a good sci-fi action movie, too. Far be it from me to give this movie the kiss of death by making it seem too serious for its core audience. Chappie is everything it has to be — but it’s everything it should be, too. show more

  • Chappie is meant to inspire questions about what it means to be human, and at times it does. However, director and co-writer Neill Blomkamp doesn't explore its intriguing premise deeply enough. show more

    Worth it, if you're willing to pay attention. If you can't stomach a few f***'s and exactly one pair of **** (Jolie) then don't go. Not a good movie for children. For adults with fully functional brains, though, I could not have made anything better if I had done it myself.

    ROTTEN MOVIE ALERT!! I hate to confess it, but I just saw the absolute WORST MOVIE I have EVER seen! Hugh Jackman, you have fallen soooo low. CHAPPIE's trailer is EXTREMELY misleading. This was truly the biggest piece of Hollywood garbage I to which I have ever been exposed. My son thought the same. Why did we stay? Some perverse hope that it would///maybe.....might get better? With more F bombs than one can fathom, violence, robberies, drug lords, dog fighting, nudity...there was a RIDICULOUS PLOT, worse SCRIPT,all trying to make the audience empathize with the criminals, etc.... It was so bad that it could have been laughable to intelligent life....... EXCEPT the fact that there were parents all around us with children as YOUNG as SIX in this R rated movie. THEY STAYED. Till the END. Laughing, clapping..cheering for the criminals... World, we are in trouble. Hollywood, be damned. End of rant.
