Personal Opinion: Rise of the Apes

Rise of the Apes

I recently got to see the new Planet of the Apes movie: Rise of the Apes!  I think I am better at reviewing things that I don’t like because I don’t really have much to say other than go see it!!  It did not disappoint.  The only gripe I may have, which I have with almost all movies I go to… there wasn’t quite enough action.  When the credits start rolling all you want to do is see more!

With that said, I think the directors weren’t necessarily trying to shock and awe the audience with awesome action, it was more geared towards telling the story of how the Apes developed into such smart animals and how they would eventually become stronger than the humans.  The story progressed at a decent pace and never really got boring or stale.  I spent most of the movie anticipating at what point the Apes would really start to wreak some havoc while at the same time I was equally enjoying just watching the plot develop into exactly that.  I don’t know what else to say without spoiling any specific parts of the movie.  But there are a couple scenes alone in the movie that are worth the money to see it – and the rest of the movie won’t disappoint either.
