Rise of the Planet of the Apes turned out to be as good as everyone says. Another must-watch if you’re a fan of good character-driven movies. Sci-fi just serves as the backdrop for a stunning piece of CGI in the form of Caesar the chimpanzee.
The best part about Rise of the Planet of the Apes is the fact that the makers have crafted a story where the audience connects with the animals; in this case the titular apes. The plot is well-written and takes viewers on a journey with Caesar as he discovers more about himself & the world around him.
I give Rise of the Planet of the Apes a monkey-wrenching 5 out of 5.
