Ok, the humans in this movie are stereotypes and underdeveloped, but who cares? This is a movie about the rise of the Apes! TIm Burton’s remake of the original Planet Of The Apes was underrated as well. Bad reviews, but great fun. Well, this is even more fun. The monkeys (not only the chimps) are awesome! Especially the main monkey, Caesar, steals the show. There’s a guy behind the digital creation and it’s the same guy who has played King Kong and Gollum. His name is Andy Serkis. Some reviews say he should get an Oscar for his ape-role. And why not? If Natalie Portman gets one when a double does all the dancing…

What is it all about? Hey, this is a blockbuster movie, you should know what it’s all about. It tells the origins of the Planet Of The Apes series. A scientist (a blank James Franco) comes up with a cure for the disease of Alzheimer (which also has affected his father). He first tests it on chimps, but it goes wrong as one chimp becomes incredibly aggressive and causes havoc in the lab centre. End of the research! However, the test chimp left a baby chimp behind and the scientist takes it home, raising it as a pet and a test subject. But the baby chimp grows older and smarter and stronger… until it has to be locked up in a primate asylum where it starts a riot!
