Fresh: The summer blockbuster we've been waiting for.

Rotten: Offers proof of Hollywood's simian instincts: Monkey see old hit, monkey do remake.

I can't believe that this one's is a Burton's, because this movie is totally disgusting... Making a movie about apes taking the control of the earth and make humans their slaves, it just totally unreasonable... The only thing I like about this movie is the plot of the story which is bending the time and make us to think while watching this movie... But the apes behavior thing, the terrible act from the cast, not mentioning that Burton had a great cast in here (Mark Wahlberg, Helena Bonham Carter, Tim Roth, Michael Clarke Duncan, & Paul Giamatti), but it just sucks... I can't even tell the difference from an ape to another apes except the main character played by Helena Bonham Carter... And the ending of this movie, maybe it sounds a little interesting, but how can that happened?? I mean it's totally nonsense for you to go to a planet who similar to earth like the oxygen thing why human can breath and live in this planet, or how can the earth in the future is ruled by the apes?? It's totally, totally nonsense I thought... And without any doubt, I think this is the worst Tim Burton's movie so far, since I haven't watch all of his movies...
