2011 Films - Best to Worst (118 movies items)

"7/10 It's good to see that this franchise is back in shape. Rupert Wyatt might have cared less about the devolution in the human characters, but that's not really important. He focuses on the apes, and Caesar. And with help from some amazing visual effects, a strong performance from Andy Serkis, he manages to create apes that are easy to sympathize with, despite them going berserk in the city. It's a clever, engaging sci-fi action film, and one of the biggest surprises of last year. Yet, I feel"

"Ihan viihdyttävä, vaikkakin varsin tökerö elokuva. Juonenaukkoja on ihan kohtuullisesti, eikä muutoinkaan käsikirjoituksessa ole paljon hurraamista. Myös toimintakohtauksissa olisi parantamisen varaa. Loppu jättää aika hyvin mahdollisuuksia jatko-osalle."

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

“San Francisco.Today.The man experimenting on animals resylting to a new kind of sophisticated monkey.Soon a world war breaks out for domination on the planet.

This movie was a big surpise for me.Even the script is not something special, the direction proved highly effectively.Less allegorical than what his predecessors were,but honest and persative for a blockbuster movie,Rubert Wyatt invests in other things to gain the confidence of the viewer without attempting to make the difference.He creates moments of big emotional tension,and his comment about the brute human nature is apt.The way that presents to us the adventures of the Monkey-protagonist Caesar is very sensitive and caring.

But the movie has and a serous problem.The first one hour film flows perfectly in the d” read more

Marvellous resurrection of an ailing saga

“"Careful, humans don't like smart ape."

After six feature films (including a remake) and two TV shows, a prequel exploring the apes' rise to global dominance seems to be the only avenue left to tackle in the exhausted Planet of the Apes franchise. Borrowing bits and pieces from earlier films (most notably Conquest of the Planet of the Apes), 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes starts from scratch, rebooting the tired saga and asking that we forget all the prior Apes pictures. This is a fresh, baggage-free outing which disposes of the franchise's pre-existing timeline to resurrect the Apes brand and pave the way for a whole new series. Surprisingly, the gamble has paid off. Directed by Rupert Wyatt, Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a rare type of summer blockbuster which is mor” read more

"The first one hour film flows perfectly in the development of characters and generally feels like a serious movie,but the remaining half hour movie essentially committed suicide after starts the classic Hollywood stuff.Destruction, explosions and generally an uncontrolled situation with unnecessary action.

"14.1. Kaikista mahdollisista kehuista huolimatta olen ollut valmis inhoamaan tätä leffaa koko sen tuotantohistorian ajan. Giganttisesti metsään rysäyttäneen Tim Burton -rebootin jälkeen näytti siltä, että Fox haluaa epätoivoisesti sylkeä Apinoiden planeetta -elokuvia pihalle niin kauan, että jokin niistä ottaa tulta alleen. Jos Apes-leffoja pitää sitten väkisin sulloa valkokankaille, toivotaan että tämä reboot tarjoaa pohjakaavan. Leffa alkaa todella kuluneena "tiede tuo tu"

" Redbox Rental Every plot-point of the film was telegraphed from miles away, and the characters are poorly written with very little development. It's a good thing most of the visuals were excellent, because this movie didn't have anything else going for it. In many ways this felt like Splice all over again. "

"Date: 7. January *first time watch* I had very low expectations, since I thought it looked a little bit silly from all the advertising, but I was completely blown away by it! The cast was great, especially John Lithgow and Brian Cox, whom both are some of my favorite actors. "

" 5/1/12 I initially didn't have any interest in this film, presuming it would be some CGI blockbuster schlock, but after hearing many good things about it, I give it a shot. My original assumptions couldn't have been more wrong. The relationship between James Franco's character and Caesar gave the movie a great emotional edge, while the film also proved to be an example of CGI used in an effective way."

"Throughout the summer there were a vast number of big budget action pictures that also wanting to try and pull on our heart strings. Unfortunately almost all of them fail because there's no reason to care. BUT to my pleasant surprise 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' makes you at the very least give a damn about Caesar and these apes. The human characters serve their purpose, but the real emphasis is on Weta's meticulously created apes and their story. By the end of the final act the emotional c"
