  • The movie rises and, at times, even soars. This is all - and I do mean all - thanks to what human actors in league with computer technology can now achieve to bring the apes to life. No more guys squeezed into monkey suits and talking in posh accents. Performance-capture makes all the difference. show more

  • Judged, though, as the action extravaganza it means to be, Rise of the Planet of the Apes wins high marks for originality, and takes top honors for spectacle. show more

  • A shamelessly fun B-movie with A-movie effects. show more

    This movie defiantly had my attention from the get go. It was worth watching but I was hoping for a bit more action. There was only about 10 min of solid action in the movie. I was really hoping for a battle but, I guess I still have part 2. Otherwise, great Friday night movie!

    I\'m not a big fan of films that , purely based on the subject matter, must rely on so much CGI. At no time was I unaware of the fact that I was looking at computer generated images. That aside, the story line was fairly weak, though the real actors\' acting was pretty good. The best I can say for this movie is, it wasn\'t terrible.
