Rise of the Planet of the Apes
4.0Overall Score

Great summer movie, taking pretty much full speed from the first minute and keeping you entertained until the very end. Nice mixture of great special effects, decent acting by James Franco, John Lightow and the star “Cesar” and a solidly written storyline. If you want to be entertained with a good Hollywood blockbuster, this is the movie to see this box office weekend.

The Good

  • Low expectation but great outcome
  • Incredibly realistic CGI with the apes
  • Scene of Golden Gate bridge is probably the best I have seen in a long time

The Bad

  • Human characters (especially sidekicks) are pretty one-dimensional
  • The actual conclusion of the movie is a little weak
  • Unrealistic portray of animal research (but who cares)


  • Running time: 105 min
  • Genre: Thriller, Drama
  • Year: 2011
