In the near future, crime is patrolled by a mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.
The movie stars Ninja and Yo-Landi Visser of controversial South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord (Afrikaans for "The Answer"), who are fans of Neill Blomkamp's work. Ninja has a tattoo 'D9' - i.e. District 9 (2009) - on his inner lip.
Historically, when we look at evolution, it's not surprising that uh... Chappie's left turn... uh... happened.
Professor: It's too early to tell how this is all going to play out. I didn't believe that this would happen in my lifetime, but... but it is ...
With hundreds of scout units in the field, the movie starts by making a point of saying that there is a completely secure way of reprogramming them, ensuring that there is no problem with programming in the field. Yet two characters set out to retrieve the single "key" that prevents this from happening and there is not a single camera, security guard, two-person key lock, or even a janitor in the building that houses the lock.
In the closing credits appears "Be Moved" in large font.
