    I can't fit this below in an organic way, so: the racial imagery of the firehoses is kind of super icky. Sorry, guys, I know you meant well, but comparing monkeys with black people is not cool. Moving on.

    It's almost unfair how easy it is to root for the uprising of the apes (there's a new title. go for it, Fox) because there's absolutely nothing interest in the humans whatsoever. If they were not humans, if the natural empathy…

    Ein ungerecht behandelter Außenseiter wird durch seine Gewitztheit zum Anführer der Ausgegrenzten und Unterdrückten - das ist die typische Helden- oder Schurkengeschichte. Bemerkenswert ist vor allem, dass der Film diese Geschichte so effektiv mit einem beinahe wortlosen Helden erzählt. Eben weil sie so fundamental und daher leicht nachvollziehbar ist? Interessant ist auch die zweischneidige Darstellung von Fortschritt, dessen Folgen auf der einen Seite unvorhersehbar sind, anderen aber erst ein Leben in Freiheit ermöglicht, weil den Feinden nicht anders beizukommen ist.…

    Much better than I expected it to be. Really compelling stuff.

    I didn’t see this film in theaters because I just couldn’t stand the thought of another reboot of this series (anyone remember the Tim Burton reboot?) and it was around the time I was so tired of hearing about James Franco. I definitely needed a media break from him. However, my not seeing this film in theaters was a mistake. This is an incredible movie.

    Somehow, the filmmakers get you to do the impossible - you feel sympathy for Caesar…

    I had doubts about this, but it was really good. A worthy addition to a family of films that have some good, and some REALLY bad.

    Gostei muito, um dos filmes de origem mais legais dos últimos tempos.

    Conseguem entreter e prender nossa atenção com uma história delicada, sem muitas reviravoltas como esperamos de um filme como este. A captura de movimentos é fantástica, conseguindo passar muita emoção nos macacos.

    Bastante empolgado para o segundo filme e para todas as continuações. É inacreditável que deste primeiro filme cheguemos à escravização dos humanos pelos macacos.

    So I saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

    And what did I think?

    It was okay.

    I mean, the direction isn't bad or anything, but it's not exactly something to write home about. The camera is used just fine, the film has a rather nice atmosphere, and Andrew Lesine's cinematography has a nice, earthy palette, but overall, the film just kinda feels static.

    I'm not sure if this is the fault of the screenplay or the actors, since…

    human bad, ape good?

    i didnt like how the antagonists were so comically evil and the apes just innocent little creatures...

    The third act saves this for me. Until then it felt a bit too much like a gussied-up TV movie, and although the CGI overall works some cool magic, I found my immersion being brought up short during some of the close-up dramatic stuff. We're not quite over that hump yet, I'm afraid, but I still enjoyed this and would re-watch about anytime.

    ทำออกมาได้ดูสนุกเกินคาด มีให้ลุ้นเป็นระยะๆ ส่วนในด้าน CG ก็ถือว่าเนียนเลยทีเดียว สรุปว่า เป็นหนังที่ดูสนุกตั้งแต่ต้นจนจบ
