Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: The action scenes (particularly a battle between humans and apes on the Golden Gate Bridge) are inventively spectacular, and the story at the movie's core is evocative and engaging.
- Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Monday, August 22, 2011
Fresh: Conjured through the ever-expanding magic of performance-capture technology, the apes are easily the most compelling elements of Apes.
- Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News, Thursday, August 4, 2011
Rotten: H]alf good and half bad, and the primary dividing line is by genus.
- Christopher Orr, The Atlantic, Friday, August 5, 2011
VERDICT: TOTALLY WATCHABLE - Where did this come from? Rise of the Planet of the Apes is the biggest surprise of 2011. The effects are great, but what really connects with you is Andy Serkis' performance as the ape Caesar. You feel as emotionally attached to Caesar as any of the human characters, and I believe that's exactly how the filmmakers wanted you to feel. This is a film that concentrates heavily on its story. Boasting remarkable acting, and truly mesmerizing moments (some only involving CGI apes communicating in sign language), make sure you seek this film out by any means necessary!
