Enjoyable take on the series - Rise of the Planet of the Apes review by Tim from London

Spoiler Alert
12/01/2012

It will always suffer from comparison with the Charlton Heston original, but this is still a good film. The first hour is particularly good and introduces some interesting themes, although it does run out of ideas soon afterwards and becomes a special effects/chase film. Andy Serkis is great though as Caesar - his use of human facial expressions is amazing.

A million times better than the Tim Burton rubbish.

Important point - do not turn off the DVD once the credits start to roll!!

Was I the only one rooting for the apes in this film? Wonderful prequel to the genre, explaining Caeser's 'genesis'.

A worthy prequel. - Rise of the Planet of the Apes review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

I'm not much of a fan of the Planet of the Apes movies, but this was a surprising good film with really good storyline and a consistent amount of action throughout. Some of the CGI was a bit flakey but the emotion in the eyes of the apes, especially Ceasar, was incredibly well done. As another reviewer pointed out, don't turn off when the credits begin, there's an extra scene after a few seconds.

Overall, this is a worthy prequel to the 1968 original movie and far superior to the Tim Burton remake. Well worth renting and looking forward to seeing a sequel.
