I really enjoyed this sci-fi comedy but as other reviewers have pointed out, if you're not a Die Antwoord fan it might be difficult to appreciate the multiple layers of humor running through the storyline and references (tribute?) to street culture.

In part, this is because two of the main characters are stage personas, with their own backstory and "mythology" which exists outside of the film itself. Combine this factor with a heavy dose of what can only be described as nerd humor ("Chappie is smart! Chappie has GPS!") and you're really narrowcasting to a very specific audience.

I had higher hopes for Chappie, but was let down.
It felt like a 2 hour advertisement for Die Antwoord.

More demented, big-budget SyFy - This time it's all about a dysfunctional robot... Ho-hum!

It is a more enjoyable movie than the critics gave it credit for.

This movie had a lot of potential. I really enjoyed the character Chappie and the more renowned cast. Hugh Jackman does a great villain. The only downfall was the weird ghetto thugs who "parent" Chappie. They're supposed to be in some kind of musical group. When is Hollywood going to learn to keep music and acting separate? I understand that South Africa has a huge white British and Dutch population. But I found it strange that all the lead gangsters were white especially those two goofy looking thugs. In fact there weren't many native Africans in the movie. Normally I would be against this train of thought because political correctness has gone out of control. But I felt that it made the movie less real.
