Rise of the Planet of the Apes

TV & Satellite Week - - Films - 2011, 12, 105MIN

A decade af­ter Tim Bur­ton’s dis­ap­point­ing ‘re-imag­in­ing’ of the 1968 clas­sic, Hol­ly­wood re­vis­its the Planet of the Apes mythol­ogy in a pre­quel to the 1968 orig­i­nal. Ex­plor­ing how the apes got their su­per-in­tel­li­gence, the film is both an ex­cit­ing sci-fi ad­ven­ture and a pow­er­ful cau­tion­ary tale about hu­man ar­ro­gance and folly. Thanks to an as­ton­ish­ing turn from Andy Serkis as the ape Cae­sar, the film puts across its story so con­vinc­ingly that you will be swept along with it.
