Seen this a few times before of course before it was remade. Enjoyed this one tremendously a variation on the original story with great special effects.

One word: WOW! Oh My, words cannot describe how amazing these movies are! The Planet of the Apes Rebooted Trilogy stands as one of the greatest movie trilogies of all time. All 3 movies are perfect. I can't speak for the box set as its not released yet but as for the films:

RISE of the Planet of the Apes - A brilliant, clever re-invention of the Apes franchise, the plot is amazing, the characters are all well done and it doesn't stray from focusing on Caesar, and the end is EPIC!

DAWN of the Planet of the Apes - An even more impressive continuation after RISE. The plot revolving the human characters is basic, but you have great drama and conflict, when the finale hits its enthralling. There are some brilliant emotional moments also.

WAR For the Planet of the Apes - A Fantastic conclusion to Caesar's story. In the words of Woody Harrelson's Colonel, "So emotional!" Haha. In all seriousness its a superb movie with so many emotional moments. its not as action packed as the title would suggest but don't let that throw you cause there is some action. Its a great character piece. I love the callbacks to the original film of 1968. Its dark, brutal and emotionally satisfying and it has a masterful music score.

All 3 films are visually stunning and some of the most dramatic movies of the 21st century, other filmmakers should take note from Rupert Wyatt and Matt Reeves, these are masterpieces. Highly recommended not to be missed and these 3 films top the other 6 Apes movies, yes even the original 1968 movie. All 3 I would score a 10/10 not to be missed! If you haven't seen these films you are missing out!

This film seems to be one of those films that leave people divided. When you remake any classic, you will always have a section of the fan base 100% adverse to it, regardless of quality, so it is no surprise that this suffers from the same problem. But even if you take out those blinkered fans, it still has probably an equal amount of love and hate.
One of the main problems this film suffered was studio interference. They set out a release date before the film had even started production and refused to budge, meaning these constraints lead to the film being somewhat rushed. The budget was also hampered somewhat (the ending scene would have involved apes playing baseball in a stadium on Earth).
There are ups and downs, for sure as some of the acting of the ape actors leaves a lot to be desired. But the actual make up and effects are fantastic.
One of the things I do not get though is why so many people are confused about the ending. The minute they find the wreck of the Oberon we are told that Wahlbergs character was thrown forward in time by thousands of years due to the magnetic storm (and of course the chimp arriving after Wahlberg is more proof of this), so when he returns to Earth you pretty much know it is going to be in the future, and if apes evolved on one planet, why can they not evolve on another? The ape planet showed all the same traits as Earth as far as human dominance and technology, so being subjugated by the evolution of apes is obviously something that could happen on any parallel planet. Especially when you consider the apes originated from Earth anyway.
