Movie Review: ‘Chappie’ Starring Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman
Mar 2015 06

chappie movie posterChappie is the latest film by science fiction director, Neill Blomkamp. Blomkamp has been responsible for some the most modern, contemporary sci-fi films to date. Elysium and District 9 were his last two films, and many critics and movie-goers were not satisfied with his most recent direction. The film community had begun to wonder if the young, brash and over-zealous director was in over his head. Can Blomkamp return to form and wow audiences with CHAPPiE?

Is third time the charm for the director? Read on to find out.

Chappie follows Blomkamp’s crude, realistic and dirty production values of his previous films. To say Blomkamp has a style to his films is like asking if the next Michael Bay movie will have explosions. Blomkamp has the ability to craft worlds that seem so realistic and authentic; they’re science fiction, but his content and they way he presents it is highly believable.

The world Blomkamp and writer Terri Tatchell have created is one of despair and oddly enough, hope. The setting? South Africa, Johannesburg. The situation? Dire. Crime is at an all time high, the local police force over run, a city out of options. Enter Sigourney Weaver (Avatar, Aliens), who plays a brash but easily manipulated robotics CEO, Michelle Bradley. Bradley’s company offers the relief a city with no options needs; a relenting, efficient and uncompromising police force–made of highly advanced, mobile robots. These robots are the brainchild of Deon Wilson (Dev Patel, Slumdog Millionaire). Wilson is responsible for creating the rudimentary A.I. system that powers the Scouts (the nickname given to the robotic police force).

Run All Night PosterBrooklyn mobster and prolific hit man Jimmy Conlon (Neeson), once known as The Gravedigger, has seen better days. Longtime best friend of mob boss Shawn Maguire (Harris), Jimmy, now 55, is haunted by the sins of his past—as well as a dogged police detective (D’Onofrio) who’s been one step behind Jimmy for 30 years. Lately, it seems Jimmy’s only solace can be found at the bottom of a whiskey glass. But when Jimmy’s estranged son, Mike (Kinnaman), becomes a target, Jimmy must make a choice between the crime family he chose and the real family he abandoned long ago. With Mike on the run, Jimmy’s only penance for his past mistakes may be to keep his son from the same fate Jimmy is certain he’ll face himself… at the wrong end of a gun. Now, with nowhere safe to turn, Jimmy just has one night to figure out exactly where his loyalties lie and to see if he can finally make things right.

Cast: Liam Neeson, Joel Kinnaman, Vincent D’Onofrio, Ed Harris, Bruce McGill, Genesis Rodriguez, Boyd Holbrook, Holt McCallany, Common
