Synopsis

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is a revolution; an action-packed epic featuring stunning visual effects and creatures unlike anything ever seen before. At the story's heart is Caesar (Andy Serkis), a chimpanzee who gains human-like intelligence and emotions from an experimental drug. Raised like a child by the drug's creator (James Franco), Caesar ultimately finds himself taken from the humans he loves and imprisoned. Seeking justice, Caesar assembles a simian army and escapes -- putting man and primate on a collision course that could change the planet forever.

Reviews

Joe Baltake Passionate Moviegoer | September 21, 2011

Rupert Wyatt's'Rise of the Planet of the Apes': A socially aware, achingly humane update of the venerable franchise

David Denby New Yorker | August 30, 2011

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is spectacle with a kick: the transcendence of the normal in creatures so like ourselves is both an entertainment and a needling rebuke to human vanity.

Bruce Diones New Yorker | August 22, 2011

The action scenes (particularly a battle between humans and apes on the Golden Gate Bridge) are inventively spectacular, and the story at the movie's core is evocative and engaging.

Richard Roeper Richard Roeper.com | August 06, 2011

A well-crafted B movie with astonishingly effective motion capture CGI technology.

Lisa Kennedy Denver Post | August 05, 2011

Tthe movie has some plot-point missteps. But it seldom puts the brakes on a story that moves toward a furious ape-human rumble, not in a jungle, but atop the Golden Gate Bridge.

Tom Long Detroit News | August 05, 2011

Pass the bananas.

Rick Groen Globe and Mail | August 05, 2011

The running time is efficient, the direction is clean, the story is simple but resonant, the effects are understated yet impressive, and the near-wordless star of the show puts on an acting clinic.
