I think I haven't read anywhere here yet about the portrayal of "The Company" in Chappie. Blomkamp struck the perfect balance of characteristics which the company had to make it evil, yet not evil. There were no evil motivations in the company. They were behaving like every corporation out there, and yet they were evil.
Yeah, that surprised me. I'd disagree that the company was evil, though.
Weaver's character was literally saying, "Hey, we've got a good thing here, don't screw it up." Leagues better - and more understandable - than Jodie Foster's portrayal. Am hoping this is the angle which is stuck with: Opportunists just doing the sensible thing and trying to make a profit.
The only thing I didn't understand was that the 'Moose' was being pitched to police, instead of militaries, even though the film early pointed out the company was
attracting and courting much military interest. It didn't destroy the film's entertainment value, at all, but it did perplex me.
Regardless, I'm hoping that the clean documentary style isn't a part of this. Remove that and this is a project I'm actually looking forward to now.
