RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

v
Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a straight-forward summer blockbuster with butt-kicking action.

What I really liked is that you can follow with very little thinking required and a plot that makes perfect sense.

The vast improvement in CGI technology really makes the apes, chimps, and assorted primates look real and believable.

So don't let this one slip by.

It's good excitement at its best.

Yes, it's time once again to dust off old ideas and bring them back anew.

There has been six Planet of the Apes movies, one TV series, and a Saturday morning cartoon show -- and this may be the best of the lot -- explaining the rise in ape intelligence and the beginning of the end for mankind.

Deftly directed with several humorous nods to its predecessors -- it's the summer movie you've been looking for-- all summer.

In the new science fiction movie, the star plays a scientist whose genetically enhanced chimpanzee subject, named Caesar, becomes tired of his shabby treatment and transforms into a very smart revolutionary who inspires the world's apes to overthrow their human oppressors.

Caesar's uprising starts off in a small way as he directs his captive primates to flee the research facility.

The picture in many ways becomes an escape film.

I was impressed with the special effects; they have distinct looks and qualities to them.

It's like an A-team of chimps that you don't want to mess with.
