Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes: The Review

Hmm, this is a toughy. I really expected quite a bit more from the movie. Don’t get me wrong, I was pleased with it, I just expected more deeper meaning, and a bit more of an ending, not an obvious setup for a part 2. That said, I’ll give it a B for an afternoon matinee, a C+ for the more expensive night time viewing.

It was a good, if sometimes slow, movie, that said “yeah, about that previous Planet Of The Apes movie with Mark Wahlberg in 2001? Never happened.” You definitely get your monies worth at a length of 2 hours. It ends up being a fun summer movie without any preachiness, something a lot of people were wondering if would be part of the film. You slowly more forward as you watch the apes and other primates become smarter, then some furious action during the last 20-30 minutes.

The human characters were somewhat blah, but, at least their dialogue wasn’t annoyingly overdone.

I’m not making it sound very appealing, am I. It’s less than you think, but, it’s just another good summer flick to sit back and relax to. Check it out!
