RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
SHOWTIME PREMIERE, 8.30PM
Despite some, well lots of plot cliches, director Rupert Wyatt’s movie delivers beyond expectations. It is anchored by another amazing performance by Andy Serkis, who plays Caesar ( above), an ape raised basically as a child and whose intelligence is spiked by an experimental drug. The special effects alone make the movie worth watching and revive what looked like a dead franchise.
