De­spite the cliches, di­rec­tor Ru­pert Wy­att’s movie de­liv­ers be­yond ex­pec­ta­tions. It is an­chored by an amaz­ing per­for­mance by Andy Serkis, who plays the ape Cae­sar, raised as a child, whose in­tel­li­gence is spiked by an ex­per­i­men­tal drug. It’s all happy fam­i­lies as sci­en­tist Will Rod­man (James Franco) and vet­eri­nar­ian Caro­line Aranha (Freida Pinto of Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire fame) do some mon­key­ing around of their own, but of course things go wrong.
