If we seriously let a bunch of monkeys beat us in a straight up fight we deserve to be replaced. This isn't Humanity vs monkeys, it's Humanity's vs its own staggering incompetence --and we've all seen how that works out in the end.

Caesar is the best. When this movie was coming out back in 2011 I thought to myself "Oh great another Prequel". But this movie turned out to be freaking fantastic, The visual effect's are stunning to look at and Caesar is the biggest bad-ass ever.

I was enjoying it but then the monkey started to talk, which was just ridiculous.

Cgi apes are better then actors in monkey suits!!

By far the best movie of 2011 !!! I have seen at least one of the old Charleton Heston films featuring all the actors in monkey suits and i was so put off i even balked at Fox studios when i heard they were doing somewhat of a reboot. Then i started to see some of the trailers that Fox were putting out for the film and wow it peaked my interest. I know alot of folks will say 'Yeah yeah CGI apes...so what?' this reviewer will take CGI apes over actors in monkey suits any day of the week! When i got into the theatre to see this finally it was the very first time in from what i can remember where i actually upon watching the end credits roll, to get right back to the box office and purchase yet another ticket for the next showing and that my freinds, as far as i am concerned in this movie ...

Rise of the Planet of the Apes review

Will Rodman (James Franco) searches for a for Alzheimer's disease and uses chimpanzees as test subjects. His dad Charles (John Lithgow), who suffers from Alzheimer, discovers that Will brings home a baby chimp and names him Caesar. Caesar gets detained at San Bruno Primate Shelter for attacking Will’s neighbor. Screenplay was efficient in relaying its themes human cruelty and tempering with nature’s course: Will – “You know what they’re capable of.” John – “They're not people, you know.” Caroline – “You're trying to control things that are not meant to be controlled.” “Some things aren't meant to be changed!” You can really empathize with the emotions of the apes because of the impressive make-up and effects. Direction was effective with a superb score and cinematography. Not as...

"Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes" by Yojimbo

Caesar the chimpanzee is the genetically altered product of medical research and when he becomes the victim of the mistreatment afforded to all research animals he uses his superior intelligence to escape captivity. Well it seems that finally, after 43 years, the classic Planet Of The Apes has a worthy sequel! The latest instalment of the simian franchise takes the basic principal of the well meaning but weakly executed Conquest and combines it with elements of Greystoke to create an interesting animal orientated character study of a creature that's neither man nor ape. Once again Andy Sirkis proves his incredible skill in breathing life into animated creations and although the cast of homo sapiens acquit themselves admirably, they all take a back seat to man's best computer generated fri...

It has its imperfections, but I still liked it a lot. It's really everything with Cesar that I found to be enthralling, and Andy Serkis' mo-cap performance was undeniably fantastic. My issue with it was that I didn't really care about the human sub plots, and it doesn't help when you have a worthy, but ultimately boring actor like James Franco in it as a major character. Also Freida Pinto's character was a big fat nothing. Still, really liked it mostly because of how they handled the apes and I'm looking forward to the sequel.

Compared to Tim Burton's disastrous remake, I thought it was a welcome change of pace. Origin stories are always hard to pull off, but I'm still convinced this should have won the Academy Award for best effects.

I must be in the minority. I love sci fi and the planet of the apes. This movie was bad. Nothing about it was unique. Very predictable and unoriginal.

I'm a die hard ape enthusiast so I am critical about anything new that comes out. I thought I would hate this movie with all the new effects, however it was very well done. I loved how the pieced together about Ceaser growing up and explaining how he came and became the ape he became.The original movies and TV show still holds my heart and will always be better but this was a great adaptation for me bringing the apes to life once again..
