    Nonsense.
    Just that simple.
    Scene 1: Cesar, a new born chimpanzee needs 8 YEARS to become fully intelligent. Scene 2: The rest of the other apes takes 4 HOURS to become as smart. Scene 1: In the ape`s shelter the cages are hidden and the playground looks innocent and nice. Scene 2: The cages now surrounds the playground so Cesar can be encouraged by his similars. Scene 1:About 20 apes

    Scene 2: More than 200 apes appears in the hill only few hour latter. (¿mitosis?)

    Scene 1: Tormented scientific resign and claims for the end of ALZ113 development.

    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.
