Movie synopsis
THE ESCAPIST director Rupert Wyatt takes the helm for this PLANET OF THE APES prequel centering on genetically engineered chimp Caesar (Andy Serkis), who was created in a San Francisco lab by an ambitious scientist (James Franco), and who uses his powerful intellect to lead an ape uprising against all of humankind., This two-disc set contains Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a sci-fi movie by 20th Century Fox. It is an addition to the existing Planet of the Apes sci-fi series. The movie revolves around a chimpanzee (Andy Serkis) with superhuman intelligence and a scientist (James Franco). At the beginning of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the scientist finds a cure for Alzheimer’s disease that works for chimps. As a side effect, however, the baby chimp of the tested chimp turns out to have superhuman intelligence. The scientist raises this baby as if it were his own, but soon after reaching maturity, the chimp is forcibly removed to an ape sanctuary. In order to seek justice, the chimp creates an army of intelligent chimpanzees with the help of the same drug, and tries to battle the humans to gain back his rightful place. The battle decides the fate of the entire planet. The two-disc set, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is 105 minutes long and is subtitled in English and Spanish for viewer convenience.

Review For: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (Blu-ray/DVD, 2011, 2-Disc Set, Includes Digital Copy)

I have to be perfectly honest and upfront before I review this movie. I know that I am going to be slammed about this, but I am not a fan of the original movies. I loved the concept, but even as a kid I could see the faults in the way the movies were originally presented.

With the advances in technology since the originals were released, we are finally at a time and place where the true potential of great stories like The Planet of the Apes can be unleashed.

A good friend of mine has Alzheimer's and seeing the way in which the apes evolved was both uplifting and awe-inspiring.

The most amusing thing I noticed (and this may be purely co-incidental) was the fact that Congress passed a law restricting the practice of testing drugs on chimpanzees around the time this movie was released. Makes you wonder if they know something we don't or if they are all so incredibly stupid that they all saw the movie and think it is real.

This is a great movie that takes place in my city! There is many action scenes that have you in the edge of your seat as well as moments of sadness that make you want to help the apes.
