Writer/Director Neil Blomkamp’s Chappie was a pleasant surprise, considering my low expectations, which was the fault of the trailer that gave the impression this was a film geared for children.

 Quite the contrary, this is a good action film that provokes adult thought about the future of Artificial Intelligence and the prospect of injecting one’s consciousness into a robot.

Sharito Copley embodies Chappie, admirably and Yo-Landi Visser plays his “adopted mother,” wonderfully.  Hugh Jackman is a bit over-the-top as the bad guy, but is still fun to watch.

I give Chappie a 4 out of 5.
