Editor’s Comments: Directed by Neill Blomkamp, The film is different in its own way. The names like Hugh Jackman and other cast for sure will bring the audience and fans to theaters. The look and feel of the film is new and fresh with a story which is different from the normal films that are being made now days. However the film is not in limelight as much as it should have been but for me it is still a must watch and I hope the moviegoers love the Chappie and it’s human like abilities.
