Chappie doesn't feel right

5 second plot: Three bad ass gangstas need to come up with a lot of money fast. They kidnap the creator of high tech police robots to get him to make an on/off switch. So they can rob a money transport without the robot police interfering. Somehow they get stuck with a brand new state of the art AI robot. But they still have to teach him. Everything.

5 second review: The gangsta shit and the cool lingo is awesome and the battles are great, but the rest is childishly stupid and a bit annoying. And the worst thing is: first they make us feel like Chappie is a cute little vulnerable kid and then the adults start treating him like crap while he is begging them to please stop. That's just awful. And something else: not everyone's acting at the top of his/her game. And it shows.
