If you are a fan of this Franchise you will really like this movie so don’t read any more of this review!
If you are new to the Planet of the Apes films plan on it being slow to develop which gives you plenty of time to think. The questions that came to my mind while waiting to be entertained are: Without God, who are the good guys anyway? Without God does it matter? How does a movie with this much bloody killing and beating of Apes and people get a PG-13 Rating? Don’t take your child to see this flick if you ever plan on taking him to the zoo again. When will Woody Harrelson show his acting chops again? How could it take 140 minutes for this script? Did they not have an Editor? How much of the mood and “coloring” can one Film “borrow” from The Apocalypse Now and not give Marlon Brando credit?
The best thing about this movie is the Poster with Caesar – the lead ape not the Roman Emperor – riding right towards you in the snow with a little girl on the back of his horse. For me I wish I would have just looked at the poster for a few minutes and skipped the movie. Marty on the other gave it a B-.
