    Apetastic monkey madness.

    Radical politics delivered via the medium of a popular sci-fi monkey movie? I wholeheartedly approve. I've not seen the sequel yet, but I hope they form an anarcho-communist collective in the woods.

    What lets it down is the human element, and by that I mean James Franco, who has the emotional range of a brick that sometimes smiles a bit.

    This entire movie was like one drawn-out beginning to a good movie. I kept waiting for something to happen. Even the title is ridiculously long and boring.

    A well-crafted, visually impressive prequel that, most importantly, respects and fits seamlessly alongside the original films.

    Surprising great. Andy Serkis does things with motion capture most actors can't in their own bodies.

    A notably above-average blockbuster origin story reboot, but the deft emotional tact of the first two acts is lost in a third act that's not only disappointingly action-heavy but also unsettlingly dehumanizing in its implications.

    As with my last review, I watched this in the least optimal viewing experience possible; on an airplane, meaning reduced image, bad sound and worst of all, highly edited (or in this case butchered) to remove any content too 'graphic', including every single death or injury. So this review may not cover every spectrum of what makes the film great, but I'm pretty sure that the general jist of the review would still be it's an above average popcorn flick;…

    Pretty smart for a movie about CGI monkeys. Very enjoyable for what it is.

    Neat, grand, emotional, apes.

    A substance, designed to help the brain repair itself, gives rise to a super-intelligent chimp who leads an ape uprising.

    I wasn't expecting much here but found myself pleasantly surprised.

    I really enjoyed the first act, the second act was good but the action sequence in the third act really seemed to drag. Caesar is a well developed character and this is why movie works so well.

    As far a modern blockbusters go it isn't half bad.
