Common Sense Note

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.

Sexual Content

In one scene, the criminals go to see a kingpin who's watching porn, and a moaning, naked woman is on the television behind him. Yolandi and Ninja are sleeping together, but they don't have sex in the film.

Violence

Lots of gun violence, used with deadly force. The body count includes robots, criminals, law enforcement officials, and regular citizens. The robots are chillingly stoned, beaten, and burned (in a manner eerily reminiscent of necklacing). The criminal characters use guns every time they're shown, whether for target practice or against enemies. One character is stomped on and ripped in half, and then his torso half is bloodily thrown against a wall.

Language

Nearly constant extreme language, including "motherf---er" (or "f--kmother," as Chappie says it), "s--t," "f--k," "p--s," "slag," "Jesus Christ," "retard," "piss," and more.

Social Behavior

Will make viewers think about what makes someone "human" and whether artificial intelligence is any more or less moral/ethical than human actions.

Consumerism

Brands/products seen include Mercedes, Sony VAIO, Makita tools, Red Bull, Sony PlaySation. Also lots of promotion for the South African rap-rave band Die Antwoord.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The criminals are drug dealers; scenes of them counting pills, and many references to how Chappie shouldn't help them "deal narcotics."
