For today, we’ll take a look at the futuristic technology “thriller” Chappie, which is about a robot which has it’s own “consciousness.”
“In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. But now, the people are fighting back. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. As powerful, destructive forces start to see Chappie as a danger to mankind and order, they will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo and ensure that Chappie is the last of his kind.”
My take: While I’ll certainly wait until this is $0.01 on DVD – I find the concept interesting.
For one, in case you haven’t wondered – movies often are “prophetic.” Not really, but it’s apparent that the elite in Hollywood know what is coming soon (i.e., Minority Report – Targeted advertising, etc.) And this movie kind of portrays an already “mechanized” police force, and the very deep research into “Artificial Intelligence (A.I.).” So it can only make one wonder “what is next?”
However, there is always some kind of sensitivity embedded deep within many big-picture productions. Almost sickening, actually – that they “know” where humanity is heading, but still offer some kind of emotion and humility tucked into the final product. Kind of strange how the double-edged sword works sometimes.
(Note: That if and when “SHTF,” there will be little humanity exhibited until the dust settles… just MHO…)
