Watch: 'Chappie' And 'Short Circuit' Get Rewired In This Mashup

There are a lot of very strong opinions flying around about Neill Blomkamp‘s “Chappie,” but I have to agree with our own Drew Taylor who said “there is a lot to appreciate and even love” about the movie. Yes, it’s flawed, but it’s also surprisingly moving and undoubtedly original. However, for those less enamored with the film, it’s nothing more than an expensive, more violent take on “Short Circuit.” And so, they’ll probably enjoy this mashup.

Yep, the music and dialogue from “Chappie” has been cut with “Short Circuit” in this rewired take on both movies. Certainly, I haven’t seen “Short Circuit” since I was a kid so I completely forgot that the military plays a big part of the movie. But in terms of functional design, Chappie has Johnny Five beat. Check it out below. [Live For Films]
