    Rise of the planet of the apes is a poor excuse for a film.
    As far as trying to give us an origin story to the planet of the apes franchise it does achieve this though it is completely unrealistic and even comical.
    The first half of the film has storyline and attempts to make the film seem acceptable, the second half is just a pure failure that only achieves to show off the CGI which is

    I liked Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes, but this, I didn't enjoyed at all. Tons of apes destroying cars, attacking people, not good.

    By far the best spectacle movie of the season, and one of the few films to use digital technology for nuanced dramatic effect.

    Hell, even Heston's performance elicited cheers back in the day. Franco, in a totally, tonally different role, but still the prime human here, is a pale shadow of the ruined future to come.

    A worthy, exciting, emotional addition to the venerable monkey movie marathon. Apes will rise. Sequels are likely.
