Rise of the Planet of the Apes 2011

I'm here for another movie review!

Image taken from here

Starring: James Franco, Freida Pinto, David Oyelowo, John Lithgow



I did not planned to watch this, but after reading a few positive comments from friends, I decided to join the gang in the cinema. Turns out, not bad!



I love how they did the apes thingy! I learn from here that all the apes were created digitally by Weta Digital using motion capture. And the main apes, Caesar, he's really smart and looks like human being in certain ways. Is it true that human evolved from monkey?

Anyway, not much love stuff in this movie but quite alot of actions in the end. Overall, I'd give a personal rating of 4/5.

  3. they keep on coming up with remake of old movies, of course with improvement. the old ape was real actor. so this time they improve with modern technology.

  4. I saw the ad on TV and I really want to watch it. But too bad, Indon stop importing foreign movies especially box office movies from US. Guess we have to buy DVD already lor.

  5. The late Charles darwin "might be happy" with this movie as if someone is endorsing his theory but if you looked at some human monkey behaviors which can rivalled or more mischievous than our "cousin", i guess if we truly found out we're of monkey roots & not of god's creation, we'll be damned & not happy!!!
