This film was great, but Dawn beat the standard this film set. (Just my opinion)

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..
