This smart and grip­ping pre­quel to Franklin J Schaffner’s 1968 sci-fi clas­sic tells the story of the cre­ation of a su­per­in­tel­li­gent chim­panzee, via an ex­per­i­men­tal Alzheimer’s cure. He’s called Cae­sar, but Spar­ta­cus would be more ac­cu­rate, as he leads an up­ris­ing against (mainly bru­tal) hu­man­ity. Ex­cel­lent spe­cial ef­fects, and heart­felt per­for­mances from James Franco, Freida Pinto and John Lith­gow.
