Chappie | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Chappie

While Chappie definitely looks like Short Circuit for the 21st century, because South African director Neill Blomkamp's name is on it, we're also likely to get some social commentary spritzed throughout bursts of ultra-violence. A police droid is stolen by revolutionaries (played in part by the members of Die Antwoord) and reprogramed to feel human emotion. Naturally, the government fears and hates Chappie, and sets about to destroy the robot and everything it stands for.
