Hmmm. What Can I Say?
This is a remake of a 1960s movie I watched when I was in high school. to be brief: The explanation of what happened to cause the problem is much better in the new movie. But in the old movie it is better because there is always a "huh" factor. the acting is very good in either movie. The 60s version deals mostly with the problem of the apes. the new one seems to try to invoke some emotional attachment to the apes to make one feel sorry for them. Once again, to be brief, I prefer the older version to the newer one.

Poignant and realistic action film.
Excellent film. Raises some interesting ethical questions. Should scientists try to cure disease or are some things [death and Alzheimer's] simply inevitable? The main character, a scientist, wants to help people with Alzheimer's but winds up making things worse. Cesar, the genetically-enhanced intelligent chimp, rebels against the brutal way humans treat apes; he leads an uprising, but by "playing God" with the apes, is Cesar repeating the mistakes of his human "father"? Both have good intentions, but the result is still death and destruction. Since the original films, special effects have improved to where these apes look real, not like people wearing costumes. The result is more serious and less satirical, though there are moments of humor, including a line borrowed from the original: "Get your stinking paw off me, you damn dirty ape!"
Fun, enjoyable, great special effects, nice remake.
I nice well made take on The Planet of the Apes saga. This story is a bit of a combination of Escape From the Planet of the Apes and Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. I enjoyed this movie better than the recent Planet of the Apes remake. If you like special effects and are a 'Apes' fan, you should enjoy this version. Of course, nothing beats the original with Charlton Heston.
Do not mess with the ape!
A perfect prequel for one of the most ideallic science fiction movies. It tries to send some messages through out the movie, just like the original. Caesar, the ape with the increased intellingence, gave me some spooks a couple of times. The leading actor gave a adequate performance, to my surprise. Recommended to all the fans of the franchise and to sci.fi. lovers!
If you have been a Planet of the Apes fan, since the beginning, you must see this one. Great action, great cast.
