Movie Review: Chappie (’15 Neill Blomkamp)

Chappie is interesting to a fault. The film offers big ideas and a spectacle of premise that was crafted behind some visual flamboyance and action packed stylings. But the film fails to have a tight narrative, to a point that it feels flat. It was clunky in parts and the transition is a little off. The level of brutality weirded me out at some point and the comedic flare is just missing. As much as I wish the entertainment could’ve saved the film, I think it also fails in that aspect. All in all, Chappie, had potential if its horizons were explored intricately and if it was crafted really well. 5.5
