Boy, I was not ready for this one. The first look at Chappie packs a surprising emotional wallup.
The film stars Dev Patel as the creator of Chappie, a robot who possesses artificial intelligence. Chappie begins his “life” with a child-like intelligence that grows from there.
I’ve loved what Blomkamp has put forth so far. District 9 was an assured, tremendous film and Elysium was a pretty great subversive action film. He manages to capture a lot of heart inside of some fantastic premises.
What do you think of the first look at Chappie? Are you as excited as me to see more?
