Blog: Chappie – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Oh dear.  Chappie started well – a morality tale of robot cops and the development of an AI but an hour in and I was bored senseless.  It doesn’t help that the two lead ‘actors’ can’t actually act (Rappers turned characters playing a stylised version of themselves which you’ll only under stand via press notes).  The film is also happened by the director – who has gone on record about how much he hates the writing and filmmaking process, something evident by the total lack of pace or direction.  The FX are amazing but ultimately despite ether action orientated last 20 minutes, the film is ultimately hollow and boring.

Best Bit: Chappie’s FX are amazing

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Avoid

If You Liked this Try: Robocop, Ex Machina, District 9

Worst Film of 2010: Skyline

Worst Film of 2010: Skyline

Best & Worst Quick Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Skyline is every thing that is wrong with film making today. Great effects but piss poor plot, terrible acting and a pace that is on par with a dead snail. So bad you want to wind past, this is a real low point for 2010 cinema and should be avoided at almost all costs.
Best Bit: It’s less than 90 minutes. And I didn’t pay.
Rent, Borrow, Buy: None of the above. Shoplift maybe?
If you liked this try: District 9 (8/10); Independence Day (5/10); V 2009 (5/10)
