Consensus: Chappie boasts more of the big ideas and visual panache that director Neill Blomkamp has become known for -- and, sadly, more of the narrative shortcomings.

The principal charm of the film arises from Chappie's ears, which prick up and droop like those of a titanium rabbit.

This is a well-meaning film with a good idea that unfortunately stumbles on its way to its less-than-satisfying end.

Simply watchable, never becoming either entirely offputting or genuinely entertaining.

While the visual effects are spectacularly seamless, they're in the service of a movie which devolves from vaguely funny to just-plain silly to numbingly gory.

One of those incongruous Franken-films that's simultaneously bombastically brutal and treacly.

The Young Folks

Chappie's base programming is that of a rudimentary artificial intelligence film... it tries to show off it's self-awareness, but comes off as unintelligent and uninspired.

There's material in Chappie for a worthwhile motion picture but too little is explored by Blomkamp to make this worth a trip to a theater.

It's cluttered, goofy and incoherent from beginning to end, and much too long.

I fervently hoped that some particularly annoyed soul would create a 'Slapheads Yell "Chappie"!' supercut...to refine the movie to its purest form of annoyance. As of this writing, internet, you disappoint me. [Blu-ray review]

After the disappointment that was 'Elysium', this was a return to form. It's not perfect, but it was entertaining.
