Here are the best Chappie movie quotes, from a story that follows what happens when an experimental police robot is taught to think for itself, much to the displeasure of those who fear artificial intelligence is too unpredictable to allow to exist. The science fiction movie was written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, based off of a 2004 short film he also created titled Tetra Vaal. Chappie opened in theaters in IMAX on March 6, 2015.
In Chappie, a robotic police force known as scouts has been created to keep the peace and, for the most part, the program has been a success. But when some humans, including Deon Wilson (Dev Patel), begin to dislike the program, they find a way to fight back. So, along with Ninja (Watkin Tudor Jones) and Yolandi (Yolandi Visser), Deon reengineers one of the robots to think for itself.
Named Chappie (Sharlto Copley), the robot is exposed to various learning sources, like a developing child, with the hopes that it will come out as a well-rounded, educated and enlightened being, which also might be programed to go to battle to take down the robot police force. It doesn't take long for soldier Vincent Moore (Hugh Jackman), under the orders of Michelle (Sigourney Weaver), to discover this rogue droid and stage a full on battle between the sides. And while Vincent knows what he and the programmed droids will do in battle, Chappie remains the wild card as his free will makes him unpredictable, at best.
Vincent Moore: The problem with artificial intelligence is it's way too unpredictable.Vincent points out one deal-breaker for him with artificial intelligence. When you teach a robot to think for itself, there is no way to predict what it will do next.
Vincent Moore: You think you're a hero? You're a bunch of wires.Vincent confronts Chappie and knocks his ego down a few pegs. Chappie thinks he is real, a hero, but Vincent reminds him that he's nothing more but a bunch of wires.
Deon Wilson: I think I've cracked it. This is a new kind of life form, a new step in evolution.Deon is elated to learn that he's figured out how to allow the robot to think for itself. He sees this as a new step in evolution but maybe fails to grasp the risks he is opening up.
Vincent Moore: Listen, this is the work of Deon. This is the work of some filthy, rogue program that he's been writing and, last night, he brought a droid in here and it was sentient. And have you seen this? Do you know about this?
Michelle: I told him no!
Vincent Moore: Okay, that's a lot worse than just failing to work. So let's use this situation to make a certain other robot shine.
Michelle: Do it! Destroy that robot. Burn it to ash!
