Hugh Jackman's new film Chappie may seem like an exercise in Hollywood cynicism — think Minority Report meets I, Robot — but the film actually has some pretty relevant messages about the militarization of the police force.
We sat down with the Australian A-lister to talk about the film, about a robot that develops human feelings, and whether a robotic cop who never lost his cool would be better in a tense situation than a flawed but emotionally complex human. "The point my character tries to make in the film is, you can't send someone into [a tense situation] who doesn't have a moral compass," reasons Jackman.
The actor also talks about his stint on Broadway with T.I. and LL Cool J (in The Music Man) and reveals the moniker T.I. gave him as his rap name.
