The best I can say about this is - it's OK. But only just. Slightly better than poor would be more accurate.
With the big star names and the basic plot I thought it may be another District 9 but sadly no. As said by others, the holes in the plot are so huge and the storyline is so cliched. I continued watching only to see if it would improve....but it didn't.
I am not sure what audience it is aimed at. The basic whimsy plot would suit late teens but the language and violence pitch it to an older group - who are completely put off by the plot. It is neither for one nor other.
The acting is wooden, I didn't care for the characters and the situations they found themselves in and the dialogue used was ludicrous.
Very touching and inspirational, There is a little bit of Chappie in us all.
crap movie period
I liked it. It was nice that they used a location outside the norm. South Africa was a great choice. The robots were done very well. A bit too much foul language. I liked the ending very much.
A movie difficult to understand at the beginning. Some piece of music remembering the movie «Blade Runner»,by Angelis, sentences copying that movie: « Why do we have to die ? .» The rest is action, as usual, (District 9 ). They try to make us cry over a robot with is positions is good will and his revenge… Good and bad scenario. Not that I would call a real Sci.-Fic. A good distraction movie.
Absolutely terrible movie. I was willing to give it the benefit of the doubt assuming it would be another technocratic destruction of the earth type movie. What I wound up watching was something far worse. There are so many flaws in the story and the script, none of which come even close to the realm of possibility. To devise we could make AI, but a major city couldn't even stop some moronic gangsters in a run down van... It really makes you question the intellect of those that love this movie. There are so many routes you could go on the concept of AI and its potential consequences for humanity. This movie in no way touches on any of those things and goes in a direction that could only be r
should be negative 5 stars
A lot of what you see looks very cliche. Okay movie, more of a DVD or Netflix viewing.
Loved it, no little clean cute robots doing the beeb beeeb doobie doo stuff. Dirty was the name of the background. Why do all Sci-Fi movies look like they fellout of a dirt free room. This was Robo Cop meeting Mad Max.
Worst movie I have seen in a long time. If you want to pay someone to babysit then this is the movie for you.
Running Time: 121 min.
