CHAPPIE is a sci-fi action thriller about a police enforcement robot given artificial intelligence while in the hands of a criminal gang.


There is frequent use of strong language ('f**k' and 'motherf**ker').


There are frequent moments of strong bloody violence, during gunfights, and brief sight of a man being torn in half by a robot.

The criminal gang are occasionally seen in possession of an unnamed narcotic in pill form, but there are no scenes of drug use. There is also brief sight of sexualised breast nudity on a television screen.
