An exquisite and mesmerizing reboot for a franchise that was buried by time, progress and the leaps and bounds cinema has achieved in the decades since the original Planet of the Apes graced the big screen and wowed audiences in 1968!
To say the very least the Special Effects were astounding! Andy Serkis (Caesar) performance capture was recognized via multiple nominations which is generally unheard of as it is not considered acting in the traditional sense! But this is not your typical cinema neither was Serkis's exceptional performance which gave life, personality and yes even a soul to the CGI chimpanzee character Caesar!
Creating Caesar was a technological feat, creating him as a sympathetic character the audiences could relate to was pure genius much of which can be attributed to Andy Serkis and the performance capture technique developed for the film Avatar!
Thoroughly captivating, well crafted and pushes all the right buttons!
