Rise of the Planet of the Apes Audience Reviews

More Review
Claysaba Excellent, Without a doubt!!
ChicDragon It's a mild crowd pleaser for people who are exhausted by blockbusters.
Lidia Draper Great example of an old-fashioned, pure-at-heart escapist event movie that doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not and has boat loads of fun being its own ludicrous self.
Billy Ollie Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
michael thompson Despite all the positive reviews of this film, I found it absolutely awful.Yes the special effects were excellent, but the story left a lot to be desired.They should have called this movie simply... The rise of the Apes. This movie had no connections whatsoever to previous Planet of the Apes films....As soon as this movie started in the Jungle where Apes were being chased by their captives, I knew the bottom line.1 out of 10 from me.
merelyaninnuendo Rise Of The Planet Of The ApesA solid start offering gripping screenplay, some tight action and well developed characters Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes is a gift especially by Andy Serkis.
gordonroad-62850 It's fair to say I was intrigued by this film. All the ideas about the morality of the humans and apes was very interesting and drove the narrative of the film quite effectively for the first two-thirds of the film. The final act was more action-orientated but was directed well.The acting was consistently good across the board, with obvious mention going to Andy Serkis' portrayal of Caesar who did brilliantly well in a motion-capture role, conveying so much through body language alone. And when he does speak it is an amazing moment, that sends shivers down your spine. As it was a prequel there were a few nods to the original 1968 Planet of the Apes film which were well handled, as you see mentions of a astronaut crew that had originally gone up to Mars and then got lost in space. Then you get the first few hints of how the ape takeover happened with a virus spreading amongst humans from the ALZ-113 serum, which I can wait to see explored in the following two films.In terms of negatives the pacing isn't consistent throughout, and when you are away from Caesar it becomes rather dull. Aside from Caesar speaking for the first time and the final fight scene on the Golden Gate Bridge there wasn't anything that really stood out for me, but overall this is a solid film and one worth checking out.
coolgod By the end of his eight year presidency the ape-man president dramatically rose triumphant.... just managing to come through for his faithful, fellow gay & transgender ape-man. He truly is the great one - a regular neo! Um yeah, the gay monkey's are crawling over & infesting (like a hostile ant species) practically every; once unphucked place on earth (including the shower's of the girl's changing room at high school's all across America) .... "aint it cool", as the scientologist chimpanzee gaylord would say. Uh what else, oh yeah babooncare....
