Rise of the Planet of the Apes update feed

Akwaryo posted a review 4 years, 5 months ago

“I have to admit I was a bit skeptical before watching this movie. I saw the trailer before and I thought "Wow, another crap movie about apes". (Mind you it wasn't just me who thought so, the editor of the trailer should be taken blame for that) But then I saw the rating and reviews and I was surprised (lots of the reviews say the same thing too). Thus, I became excited to watch it.

It was kind of a prequel to the original "Planet of the Apes", which I did not watch. Well "Planet of the Apes" was about a planet conquered by Apes where humans were enslaved. "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" I suppose, is how it started. A few scientists tested a medicine which was supposed to help human enhance the brain action, on Chimpanzees. so eventually before the humans get smart, the Chimpanz” read more

"06/09/11 What a lovely film, great performances form everyone including the CGI Apes. Loved the familiar faces of the Apes, (Dr. Zaius) for one. Obviously the Ape in the film will be a ancestor of him but you know what I mean. Again I loved the original (1968) and was interested into how they would tell the story of the Rise of the Apes (and the fall of man). I wasn't disappointed, everything was played out brilliantly. I won't add any spoilers, just keep watching after the credits role. "

"8.8 A sort of prequel to both versions of “Planet of the Apes” (whichever would make more sense), “Rise” is long in setting up the story which eventually would turn the wheel on the epic story of man against apes, but is well worth it because of the great development in character, particularly the lead ape. The special effects, the ape movements and their evolution are seamless. His Amazon.com package finally arrived."

'Planet Of The Apes' series has been resurrected!

“The first thing that came to mind about the idea of a new film in the Planet Of The Apes series was this: what is Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes actually classed as? Is it a prequel where we find out how Earth became overrun by apes? Or is it a reboot and the start of something new? It isn't the kind of prequel you have seen in previous films that build up to the original versions such as The Godfather: Part II (flashbacks), Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith, Batman Begins or even X-Men: First Class, but the dialogue within, the characters, the visual effects and background settings are the beginning of something new, so it is more of a start of a reboot where either this story will continue or another new story will rise.

Many things within the film have become the st” read more

“Unlike the first movie "Planet of the Apes", this movie tells somewhat -it could happen- story. Those who love dangerous laboratory games, those who enjoy scares of tomorrow, those who wonder what may come out of eksperimenting on animals, good vs bad, morally chalenged stories, all of them will very much enjoy thrill of watching this movie.” read more

"Being the animal lover that I am, it was hard getting through some of the scenes. Andy Serkis was amazing and should spark the debate again for "should motion capture actors be eligible for an Oscar?" Yes. Absolutely. There are several powerful scenes scattered throughout, but nothing hits harder than a resounding "No!" Caesar is home. I look forward to where they take it in the inevitable sequel."

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

“Anyone who criticizes Rise of the Planet of the Apes for not developing its human characters as well as it develops its title characters is missing a few important points. First of all, the apes are the central characters here, and therefore, deserve to enjoy much more development than the humans on screen. Secondly, these apes are a thousand times better developed and display much more emotion than the dozens upon dozens of one-dimensional human characters who rear their ugly heads in multiplexes, especially during the summer. This second point is what makes the film work much better than we'd ever expect it to and to position itself above the mostly pedestrian fare that the 2011 summer blockbuster season has offered us. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a supremely entertaining cinematic” read more

"Katsottu: 11.8.2011 Se saattaa tuntua tyhmältä ajatukselta, muttei sitä loppujen lopuksi ole. Uusi Planet of the Apes on varsin onnistunut kesäelokuva. Toki elokuvaan on laitettu ajatuksia herättävä tarina, joka toimiikin koskettavalla tavalla. Tarinallisesti paluuta tehdään aivan juurille asti. Ihmisten pahuus ja eläimiin kohdistuva rääkkäys ovat loistavalla tavalla esillä. Se mikä kuitenkin pääsi lyömään ällikällä oli elokuvan erinomainen CGI-efektitarjotin. Koskaan, sii"
