The Hypocrite rated Rise of the Planet of the Apes 3 stars

RotPotA is just another experiment-gone-wrong kind of movie. Nothing peculiar, nothing new, nothing unexpected. It began very slowly with a scientist getting attached to his subject and ended with an exciting fight for freedom.

Three things I liked about watching this movie in comparison to the really (-_-)W Planet of the Apes (2001):

1. No pointless love story that just came out of nowhere and ended to nowhere

2. No shocking bestial scene

3. Watching RotPotA didn’t feel like I was watching Muppets Tonight

The “planet of the apes” being referred to in this prequel of 2001 PoTA does refer to the exoplanet where Thade (Tim Roth) and his army of monkeys, I mean apes, thrived. Remember how PotA ended.

Abraham Lincoln? Watch again.

My favorite scene:

  1. The technology and performances that bring the apes to life make the film a must-see for any modern movie fan, but it’s the emotion and humanity of Caesar’s story that makes the film a must-see for any movie fan at all. Good Review!

    • Yup, this movie focused on the emotional and human side of an otherwise scienific, non-emotional, profit-based world of technological advancement. It allowed people to see the consequences of our search for long life and supremacy. Although that kind of plot has already been seen in many movies, RotPotA is still worth watching.
