Will Rodman (James Franco) creates a drug that helps with Alzheimer. He put the drug in an ape that it flourished in. Lots of drama happens with the ape and Will's father...then mistakes are made over and over again until the film climaxes with so much damage it can't be undone. The Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
9 Good Things About this Film
1. The CGI work seemed flawless. I tried to find a flaw in how these apes looked, and couldn't.
2. Entertaining WAY more than I thought, even though I had a good idea of the goodness from Rotten Tomatoes.
3. The actors did well. An idea that reeked of moldy cheese on script paper, played out well on the big screen. No need to use the script as potty training paper for baby monkeys. Aww.
4. The moviegoer watched and the moviegoer said it was good.
5. Loved the NOOOO.
6. It's just a good film with good acting and a great story.
7. California would allow this kind of monkey business. If apes went ape in Texas, the citizens would shoot them dead and then shoot PeTA protesters. /end of story.
8. Loved the signing. I'm very interested in ASL.
9. I had fun watching The Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
1 Bad Thing About this Film
1. PeTA praising this film for because they didn't use “real” apes, but CGI ones. As they said on Red Eye, PeTA supports unemployment for actor apes.
The Rise of the Planet of the Apes rocked my evolution to the core. If you like films that have talking apes (not talkig about James Franco – har har) and a lot of signing jokes, this film is for you and your awesome heart for movies. <3
