    Nueva adaptación cinematográfica de las aventuras simiescas basadas en la novela de Pierre Boulle y cuya mejor interpretación para el séptimo arte corre a cargo de Franklin J. Schaffner en su brillante película de 1968 protagonizada por el siempre perfecto para estos roles épicos y homéricos Charlton Heston. Esta versión del 2011, es una especie de precuela / reboot protagonizada de manera aceptable por James Franco acompañado de un reparto de secundarios tan cumplidor como intrascendente.

    La película es un…

    Nem tartom olyan erősnek a sztorit, mint az eredeti filmeknél. De a megvalósítás és a motiváció elég erősre sikeredett. Kíváncsian várom hova fognak kilyukadni innen.

    They chemically induced intelligence in apes, and thus eliminated that whole apes travelling back in time from the future where they had taken over (you know, the planet of the apes) time loop premise (ie where the super intelligent apes travel back in time to spark their own genesis in the past) (which is problematic and this scenario actually has a lot less dissonance. My problems with this movie are pretty much all concerned with it just bulldozing the…

    While uneven in some parts and overlong in others, at its best Rise feels like one of the best, most radical sci-fi movies since A.I. and watching it got me ridiculously excited to (re-)watch all the Planet of the Apes films, though having now watched some of them I feel like it will be mostly disappointing.

    I feel like my excitement boils down to a single scene that deftly demonstrates this film's intelligence and awareness about power and inequality: after…

    Against all odds, this prequel and second reboot to the long-running series is both highly enjoyable and intensely emotional.

    If you're willing to accept the two halves of this film (the tender drama buildup and the batshit crazy action finale), then you'll have a lot of fun. The human actors are fine but, John Lithgow excepted, they get upstaged by the apes, who are brilliantly expressive. If there were fewer 'what the ...?' moments, when characters are forced to do things that are outrageously illogical and stupid to further the plot, then it'd be the blockbuster of the year.

    I really enjoyed the way that you could almost have the whole story from Ceaser's perspective. Through the way that things were shot, and the level of animation in Ceaser really brought the story home.

    Despite some gargantuan-sized plot holes (e.g. why does the chimp handler who contracts the virus never bother seeing a doctor?) Rise of the Planet of the Apes is one of the best reboots as of late with the help of some terrific motion-capture effects that enable Andy Serkis to more-or-less steals the film.

    Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a great installment(reboot) in the Planet of the Apes franchise. Usually with some prequels they are unnecessary and really not needed to see what happened before the initial movie. With this film though it was really interesting to see what was a cause of some of the human population dying down, why the Apes eventually become intelligent. Andy Serkis does an amazing job as Caesar and making this character come to life. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a fun and exciting movie. Recommend that this and it's sequel should be in any persons movie collection.
