What's going on, guys? Welcome to StarWizardWars' Reviewing and today I'm going to be reviewing the film Chappie which I just recently saw in cinemas. And just in case you haven't seen the film...
| Spoiler warning: The following contains plot details about|
the entire movie.
The film was an enjoyable watch and it was very cool to see it as my first 2015 film. The story was very good, the visuals were on the nose, though I did have a problem with some of the acting. It just didn't seem as pleasent as the performances of Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman and the sci-fi queen herself, Sigourney Weaver. I did think that Weaver would get a more dominate role in the film, but it felt just like the same with thinking that Bryan Cranston would get the lead role for the 2014 Godzilla. The story about a police robot programmed with artificial intelligence who quickly learns the ways of humanity and learns how to be a human himself was a very decent as well.
Overall I give this film a B grade and 4 and a half stars out of 5. So let's get down to my Top 3 Favourite Moments.
Number 3: Vincent Moore
Hugh Jackman was amazing at being a villain in this film, he was at his very best as he always is. I actually thought that Vincent was holding a loaded gun and actually meant everything he was saying to Deon when he was threatening him, but then it turned out to be a prank and I did laugh just like everyone else. I think it's like, the funniest bit of the film. It was a really intense scene when Chappie was beating the shit out of him for killing Yolandi. I nearly laughed a little when Chappie calls him a "bad man" and I said that that kinda ruined how intense the scene was, but otherwise it was a very entertaining scene, seeing Chappie lose his shit.
Number 2: Vincent's giant robot attack
I did like it seeing Hugh Jackman being an indestructible badass against gangsters with machine guns and bazookas. Kinda like another indestructible badass he played, Wolverine. It was upsetting to me when he shot Yolandi and Deon, but other than that it was fun seeing him just annihalating everyone.
And Number 1: Chappie's lessons
It was fun seeing Deon, Yolandi and Ninja each teach Chappie about painting, shooting, stabbing and acting "cool". It was pretty funny when Chappie started copying the other gangster when he started swearing at Deon. I felt pretty bad for Chappie when Ninja drops him off at the mugger's hideout and they set him on fire and throw stuff at him. Chappie being a gangster was a whole lot of fun to watch, I was wondering whether they would force Chappie to do something extreme or not.
So let me know what you thought of the film and what your favourite moments in the film were and until next time.
