Chappie movie review, Themes and Memes ep19

In this instalment of Themes & Memes; Aaron and Adam continue to focus on the wave of Robot, Android, and A.I themed films that have been flooding the Box Office for the past few months - in analyzing the film 2015 'Chappie', by Neill Blomkamp. Colourful, vibrant, and entertaining; the film juxtaposes humour, innocence, and virtue, with darkness, sadism, and depravity - where a Military-Industrial Robot is given the gift of consciousness, and must battle with the influences of all those who have a stake in his existence.
