What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Chappie is from South African director/sci-fi specialist Neill Blomkamp, who also made District 9. Despite the movie's Short Circuit-meets-A.I. overtones, Chappie is far too violent to be appropriate for tweens or even young teens. In fact, there's so much violence (there are lots and lots of guns, and people are shot at, crushed, punched, stabbed, and even sliced in half) and strong language ("motherf---er" is thrown around casually, even by the robot) that even some adult audiences might find it off-putting. There's also a quick glimpse of a naked woman seen on television in the background of one scene and lots of drug-related content (the criminals are dealers). On the plus side, the movie could prompt interesting discussions about what makes someone "human" and whether artificial intelligence is any more or less moral/ethical than human actions.
