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 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.
The performances are good by James Franco and John Lithgow.Again Freida Pinto is very beautiful but very bad actress.
But the great performance became from a monkey.A monkey called Andy Serkis.
The talented and definitely underrated actor plays the monkey Caesar and with the expressions and movements impress for another time.
With few words,an excellent blockbuster movie with deep messages and emotional scenes.Not only for action movie lovers.
