4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic action film, with brains.
What a very very good film this is. In `Rise of The Planet of the Apes', English director Rupert Wyatt has a stab at doing what Tim Burton failed spectacularly to do in 2001 - resurrecting the Planet of the Apes franchise. What Wyatt has created, against all the odds, is a thoughtful, intelligent and stirring piece which provides the perfect antidote to all the silly,...

3.0 out of 5 stars And I would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for those pesky apes
In Rise, we get to know the first Ape - Caesar. Used in experiments to find a cure for Alzheimer's disease, Caesar develops way beyond the expected intellect of a normal ape. This is handled well in the film, always highlighting the potential problems for messing with nature and science.

When Caesar's death is ordered due to an experiment going wrong, Will...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great quality, 14 Oct. 2013

Great quality DVD and thoroughly enjoyed the movie. CGI is a bit off but does not distract from the film which tells the story of Ceaser!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic film!, 7 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this film. The story made it almost sound believable. James Franco was really good in it, and the effects of the apes were fantastic. I would recommend it to any film lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Funky Gibbon, 24 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great film. Ties in nicely to the 'Heston' movie with more than a few hat tips in the direction of the great original. Also manages to cover some contemporary issues without becoming too preachy. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars faultless, perfect, awesome...and then some, 17 Sept. 2013
I am shocked that anyone could give this movie less than 5 stars. It is hands-down the BEST movie of the decade, possibly 5 decades; and this coming from someone who has hated every one of these Planet of the Apes movies thus far, just never got into them at all. All of it comes together beautifully, and the main character is magnificent (understatement of the century) - his coming of age from innocent and vulnerable primate to the disillusioned, bitter, but nevertheless compassionate ape is exceptionally portrayed. the contrast between the vicious, insensitive humans and the restrained apes makes it very easy to cheer the latter. the musical score, the videography, the cast, the acting, the story - all the elements fit together so well to make a perfect package - ive seen it now at least 4 times and it never gets tiring or boring. the only downside to this is Franco's weak acting: when someone you think of as your child refuses to come home with you, i think you'd do more than look shocked and then walk away, dont you? and when he sees for himself that his 'child' can talk, his reaction is so bland. no goodbyes, no 'stay safe', just a miserable 'go'....but even this negative is not enough to take away from the brilliance of this movie. I cant wait for the next installment, I just hope its directed and produced by the same folks, they obviously know what they're doing.

This is a great film for fans of the original. A different twist that shows one possible outcome to how it all began. Well worth buying
