Chappie Movie is Crappie
I can’t recall ever having walked out of a movie theater before the movie ended–until yesterday when I tried to sit thru Chappie.
The movie is horrible. Save your money.
It’s set in 2016 and robot police are keeping the peace in Johannesburg, South Africa.
This robot …
I’m not even going to waste my time writing a full-length review.
- Hugh Jackman is a protagonist in this movie. I honestly can’t tell you if he was the biggest bad guy or not. There were so many people in this movie to not like.
- Dev Patel is kidnapped at the beginning by a group of low-lifes, but so long as he leaves Chappie, a robot, with them, he’s free to come and go. (Hey, if you’re ever kidnapped, that’s the kind of nappers to have.)
- Sigourney Weaver is the boss of Hugh Jackman. Is she a protagonist, shapeshifter, I don’t know.
- The low-lifes who kidnap Dev and Chappie, there’s not a lower Root Center chakras role that’s ever been on the screen than these three. We’re at the bottom of the food chain. And that woman’s squeaky voice. Kill me.
I don’t care how this movie ended. I don’t think I even got to the supreme ordeal midway through.
The only laugh I got out of this movie was the license plate of the bad guy’s car–FOKOFF….
Again, it’s bad. Save your money.
