Well I saw “Rise of the Planets of the Apes” last night and I have to say it was pretty good! It really made me want to go back and see the original all over again. I definitely think they are planning to do their own sequels to this movie as there were a lot of questions left unanswered.
Well the movie was great in the beginning and the middle but sort of slowed down towards the end. I really liked the development of Caesar’s character and that was definitely my favorite part of the movie. Seeing him grow up in James Franco’s house and exploring the redwood forest was a very cool aspect of the plot. I do have a hard time understanding how the disease wasn’t quarantined after Franklin showed that he was sneezing blood in the lab. You would think professional scientists might understand that could be a warning sign. I also didn’t quite get how the apes escaped all the humans on the bridge at the end of the movie, you would think the would account for under and above the bridge…in any case, I thought the vast majority of the movie was very well done!
