I honestly thought that this movie was going to be a comedy, like a straight-up genre aware screwball affair.  How could it not be?  It's so obviously Short Circuit meets Robocop that they HAD to be making a comment on those types of movies and expectations.  But it wasn't!  I thought that Chappie was going to become this icon that the people rallied behind because he was a machine of a totalitarian state fighting back against the Man, and that the dumb gangsters were gonna take it upon themselves to be Chappie's representation.  Maybe I've just been watching a lot of dumb 80s movies, but that's where my head was.  A bit Encino Man, a bit Airheads, a bit Weekend At Bernies and a bit Bulworth with a hyper-violent edge to it.

I didn't even bother to write all this down before I saw the movie because I thought the execution was so obvious, I never thought the movie would be something different.
