The Planet of the Apes (2001) review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 12/15/11
The ship of Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg) crashes in a planet Ashlar in the year 5021. He meets Ari (Helena Bonham Carter). General Thade (Tim Roth) and Colonel Attar (Michael Clarke Duncan) to search for humans. A battle erupts between the apes and men. Leo was able to go back in his real era and discovers a horrifying truth. The effects, make-up were definitely better than its predecessor but the depth of the story was incomparable. Performances was a bit over the top here unlike the sincerity of the first installment. The Planet of the Apes (2001 version) was action packed but lacks a suitable screenplay that would have paid a better homage to its original.
