Chappie (2015)


Just watched Chappie. To sum it up:

Pinocchio as told through Short Circuit, substituting Steve Gutenberg and Ally Sheedy for some terrible coiffured Marilyn Mason style rave-rappers, Die Antwoord (for to appeal to the hop-hip crowd), adding ED-209 piloted by Wolverine (for to appeal to the gritty action-movie crowd), with just a hint of philosophy of mind (for to appear smarts), and set in Johannesburg, South Africa (‘cos Neill Blomkamp represents his hood).

Yeah, it was cute though a bit derivative, until the shite Disney happy ending.
