Planet of The Apes,
This review is from: Rise of the Planet of the Apes [DVD]  (DVD)
Planet of the Apes is a great film to see. Introducing Caesar a rescued chimp brought up in a scientists home after the drug company ordered them to be destroyed after what appeared to be a botched experiment. Caesar shows high levels of intelligence (after scientific experiments on his mother) and is a fast learner, add to that he carries a gene that can delay and improve alzeimers, hes kinda valuable.
However, he does not know exactly what he is. After an argument with a neighbour, Caesar is released into rescue place, where they look after Chimps and Gorillas, only to find mankind are not all that nice. He then sets about recruiting and developing his own little army of Monkeys/Gorillas/Orangs to escape to freedom, a place across the Golden Gate Bridge. The film is 2 hours and a few mins long, but worth the time. Action packed in parts, the scene across the Golden Gate Bridge is spectacular! You develop sympathy for Caesars predicament and start cheering the little guys on half way through the film, well I did anyhow! Great prelude to the Original Planet of the Apes, worth 5 stars ;) TY enjoyed it !!
