The biggest problem with the original RoboCop movie was that the RoboCop was a CyborgCop so this South African movie adresses this problem by having a true robot but with human feelings and a mind that can evolve itself into something better. An intriguing premise ruined by an annoying rapper couple and a lousy Indian stereotype character. The action is good though and Hugh Jackman is fun to watch as the villain.
The film is well directed and the script has its moments, but much like Elysium, there's so much cliche and meandering that it becomes much less than it could've been. I will say that those two rappers (with zero acting experience) as surprisingly great actors in this film.
A heatwarming cyberpunk gangsta action/comedy. I can't understand how this appeal could be lost on the critics. Blomkamp gives fellow South African artists Die Antwoord the spotlight and the result is a mash-up for the ages. Pure bliss for any fan of these two incredible creative forces.
I have no idea what this bonkers film was but if it was a comedy it was hilarious- I definitely wasn't bored! I'M AS CROSS AS A FROG IN A SOCK!!!! The script is laughably bad at times and oh my god it was even funnier as Ninja actually takes himself seriously. Poor Dev Patel trying to seriously act amidst the chaos. 3*
To put it simply, I already like previous movie by Neill. So when this movie came out I am so excited and I watch it on premier show in my local cinema. Yes it deliver what I expect from Blomkamp movies, I like sci-fi movies and this is one of my favorite, I love the supporting cast Yolandi and Ninja, I think they did a pretty good job, and not forget to mention the performance from Mr Copley that bring Chappie alive
