Rise of the Planet of the Apes ★★★★

Monkey riding a horse like a human! Yeah! Need I say more? No, but I will. This was a wonderful surprise. I love all of the original movies with all their 60's cheese. When I heard they were making a modernized prequel I was skeptical. They made all the right decisions, almost. They kept the monkeys and apes realistic yet incredibly human. Andy Serkis might be the greatest character actor of our time. Franco didn't looked stoned and I actually believed he could be a scientist, well done :) The end sets everything up for a sequel. BTW I love how they get rid of the human race. It leaves you wanting more. The only thing I didn't care for was allowing Caesar to speak. I know you have to do it to create the mythos but it just didn't fit, in this movie. Next time, more monkeys riding horses like humans! Please :)
