Film Review: Chappie

Starring: Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Dev Patel

I know I said I wasn’t gonna see this flick but I guess I’m gonna do a little more flip flopping here and actually went and saw it. Why? Nothing else was playing and wanted to kill some time so I decided to check it out anyway while I was at the mall.

Plot/Synopsis: In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.

This movie is getting shitted on like crazy by movie critics online. It’s another one of those movies that you either love or hate. It’s actually getting mixed reviews. One thing when I go in and see a movie and then I give my opinion on it, I never listen to the critics. When I give my opinion on movies, I don’t speak for anybody else, I speak for myself.

Surprisingly, this turned out to be a good movie after all! Yes, it did tell a good sci-fi story. It had sci-fi all over it. Don’t listen to the critics. Most of them are full of shit anyways. This movie totally reminded me of Robocop, Short Circuit and Terminator all in one. It definitely had some sci-fi to tell as some of it reminded me of Isaac Asimov stories. Maybe that’s where Blomkamp inspired the story from? It seemed it was Isaac Asimov influenced.

Sharlto Copley did a great job voicing, Chappie, the main character of the film. The character was very enjoyable and entertaining as hell. This robot will remind you of No. 5 from “Short Circuit” absolutely. I’m sure “Short Circuit” was part of the inspiration for this story also.

The rest of the cast was enjoyable as well. I was most impressed with Hugh Jackman’s character ’cause he played a villain in this role. It was interesting seeing Jackman as a villain, he did a good job. Sigourney’s role was also enjoyable.

The movie can be touching, heartwarming, sad, and entertaining all at the same time. The film had plenty of action and violence in it. All the action scenes were a blast to watch. While Chappie did get into some action, keep in mind this film is just an introduction of that character. I’m sure Chappie will get into even more action in the upcoming sequels. It’s looking like this film is gonna end up being a trilogy or a series of films.

The visuals and cinematography was pretty impressive like always. The score was genius.

This turned out to be a good film after all. Pretty decent and worth a look. I’m already looking forward to the sequel. I think this is Neill’s best film so far. A big improvement.

I’ll give “Chappie” a score of 4 out of 5 as in “good”.

Cool Video: The A-Team trailer…

Well, here it is, the first teaser of the “A-team” movie. My thoughts? It’s look great, count me in the theater for this one definitely as I am a massive fan of the TV show. My only complaint is Rampage Jackson being Mr. T when I agree with everyone else, B.A. Baracus can only be played by Mr. T and no one else. Quinton Jackson just doesn’t work and he’s not the right fit. Other than that, I’m happy with the rest of the cast. Liam Neeson is perfect for Hannibal. Bradley Cooper is perfect for Faceman and Sharlto Copley is perfect for Murdoch which all three are an exact match. Nobody can copy Mr. T though. The film overall looks good. Looks like a fun action ride. Definitely excited for this one!

First look at the A-Team remake…photos…

The A-Team has finally started filming with cast members. See how the characters are just an exact match from the original TV series. Liam Neeson looks exactly like George Peppard as Hannibal as I expected. Rampage Jackson looks exactly like Mr. T, Bradley Cooper is an exact match to Faceman Peck, and Sharlto Copley as Murdock.

See the rest of the pics here:

Very cool.

Maybe the A-Team movie would actually be promising and it’s getting better looking at the photos.

Not a bad cast. I can definitely see Sharlto Copley as Murdock. Copley is a good actor and I’m sure he can nail the Murdock role perfectly. If you don’t think he can, I suggest you watch, “District 9”. His role in “District 9” is kind of similar to Murdock in “A-Team” which is what made Fox go after him.
