You may feel to be watching the last reboot of the Robocop franchise, but believe me, Neill Bloomkamp’s Chappie has much to offer to the viewers. Not only that the film offers a stunning special effect adrenalin rush, but also high quality acting from the film’s central characters. Director of District 9 and Elysium, Neill Bloomkamp offers us with the best option one can have to enjoy a full science fiction.

Extremely close to the last Robocop reboot, Chappie tells the story of a robot which is built and it as the strong sense of good and bad, right and wrong. However, these are the very senses that halt him to accept all kinds of orders from its creators. Thus, it faces threat from its makers as they plan to shut him up.
Not every movie need to have a unique story. But yes, every movie should have a distinct and new treatment for the presentation of story. Chappie does it and surely this movie has that strength to attract the masses.
Acting and Direction:
From the young actor Dev Patel to Huge Jackman, to Sharlto Copley aka Chappie, everyone has given a nice performance is Chappie. Not treating it as a mere sci-fi flick, they offered quality acting. However, the dialogues of the film is somewhat stereotyped and at one point, the viewer’s heart would crave for some subtlety.
However, for director Neill Bloomkamp, Chappie may prove to be a very successful film on the box office because of its appeal as well as visual effects. He has proved once again that his films are not only science fiction for enjoyments, but also stories that raise questions regarding the technological advancements and it’s future.
Why Watch Movie(Name) and Final Verdict:
Chappie should be seen to witness the wonderful visual effects as well as the actions in a very low profile.
