Saw this today and enjoyed it much more than the prequel, Rise of the Planet of the Apes. It’s a tale of how fear, mistrust, hatred and, above all, stupidity lead to misunderstanding and inevitable conflict.
The story gets moving pretty quick, so you don’t feel like you’re waiting for a couple of hours for the movie to get to the interesting part (unlike Rise). Decent story, decent acting, the story makes sense (for the most part) and a nice big battle towards the end. They also set it up nicely for the sequel, which I’m guessing will be Battle for the Planet of the Apes (you’ll see what I mean if you go see it).
I was close to chucking this one into the Netflix queue but I’m glad I went to see it. At the very least it’s worth the price of a matinee ticket. Cheers.
