There aren’t that many films that I watch and think “Wow that was good!!”, this was one of those movies.
To be honest when I first heard that they were filming another Planet of the apes movie I was really expecting it to be awful. I didn’t like the Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2001) at all, and just felt like they should leave the original films alone.
The only thing that really made we watch this version was the fact that Andy Serkis and James Franco were staring in it and Weta Digital were doing the effects.
Long story short…THIS IS A FANTASTIC MOVIE!
What I loved about it was how much it paid tribute to the original moves, the part were Cesar yells “No!”……goosebumps!
They some how managed to write a story which could be a completely new start to the series, while still paying tribute to the original moves.
The acting was fantastic, Serkis was phenomenal as usual, and while we’re on the topic of the acting…the film did kind of make me wonder what Tom Felton would be like acting as a good guy.
Seeing him with a tan was weird enough, but I kept half expecting him to pull out a wand and start dueling with Cesar…hehe…it’s only a matter of time till someone dose a spoof of that now on You Tube.
