    “I love chimpanzees. I'm also afraid of them”

    I think it's kind of interesting to see how the Planet of the Apes-movies have followed a similar pattern of that of King Kong has throughout the years. Both started as what's now regarded as classic (in 1968 and 1933 respectively), they got some sequels and then came a remake many years later, regarded as pretty shitty - and finally came yet another re-imagining with Andy Serkis as a motion-captured monkey. But…

    This movie did a good job of explaining how a planet filled with intelligent apes could get started. The acting of the apes is really convincing. This is really smart science fiction.

    From the get go I was pleasantly surprised by Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Although the trailer did look pretty sweet, I must admit that when I first heard about them yet again delving into the Planet of the Apes franchise, I was incredibly bloody sceptical. I'm glad now though, as this was as worthy a reboot as you could ever hope for, which as far as I'm concerned trumped even the original, not to mention how much…

    Surprisingly decent/tight sci-fi action flick. Some generic characters (token female, Draco Malfoy evil twerp etc) but overall satisfying.

    Prequel to the classic Planet of the Apes. Can be watched in isolation but you'll get more out of it if you have seen the classic film first.

    That movie was much better than I expected any movie about an ape rebellion to be.

    I loved this movie. I think it was the subject matter. It just really intrigued me because I could not wait to see what would happen next.

    ¨Ape alone...weak. Apes together strong.¨

    This is a great example of how to do a reboot.

    I must admit, this Rise of the Planet of the Apes was never on my watch list and I didn't really have any intention of watching it. This changed when my dad put it up on Netflix this weekend while I was visiting and boy was I surprised.

    My apathy, for a movie that I thought was going to be cheesy or worse yet a much too derivative remake, turned to enjoyment for what turned out to be a fun…
