R | | Action, Crime, Drama
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.
Although similar to the rifle that appears in Lord of War (2005), Hippo's weapon was specially made for the production.
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 ...
It's pointed out multiple times that Chappie's lifetime is limited to only about five days because his battery is fused into his chassis and can't be replaced, but it's never explained why the battery can't simply be recharged in place.
In the closing credits appears "Be Moved" in large font.
In an alternate ending, Chappie has an army in downtown then ends the footage of William Roberts.
