RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES

SHOW­TIME PRE­MIERE, 8.30PM

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TELEVISION -

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.
