Chappie (2015) - made in South Africa, this is a tragicomic sci-fi about a police robot bought to life via artificial intelligence. The movie has a couple of helicopters used in a police raid.

The featured helicopter is an MBB BK-117 (EC-145), with Scout droids standing on its skids ready to jump off when the copter perches on top of a cargo container.

The BK-117 is slightly damaged when the baddies' gunfire hits the main rotors, and the pilot flies out of the area to avoid an ongoing shoot-out.

The BK-117 is partnered by a Eurocopter AS-350B2 Ecureuil (A-Star) that lands on the ground nearby to drop off two human cops.

Later, at Johannesburg's police HQ, there is an Atlas Oryx (Aerospatiale SA 330 Puma) transport parked in the yards, while riot cops climb aboard, but we don't see the helicopter take off.

The front nose of another helicopter (possibly an Agusta A-109) is briefly visible on the left.
