Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a revolution; an action-packed epic featuring stunning visual effects and creatures unlike anything ever seen before. At the story's heart is Caesar (Andy Serkis), a chimpanzee who gains human-like intelligence and emotions from an experimental drug. Raised like a child by the drug's creator (James Franco), Caesar ultimately finds himself taken from the humans he loves and imprisoned. Seeking justice, Caesar assembles a simian army and escapes -- putting man and primate on a collision course that could change the planet forever.

Rise of The Planet of The Apes never conveys any real subtlety and takes a more in-your-face approach to its painfully blunt message which rings in after a rather tepid ending that undoubtedly leads us to expect a sequel. It’s a film which delivers the goods for a popcorn filled action sci-fi flick but doesn’t really provide a truly engaging experience for anyone else.
