If only Burton cared as much about having real characters as he did about having real actors.
| Original Score: C
Had enough of a fun story and great visuals to make it worth my five bucks.
| Original Score: 3/5
Neither superior nor inferior to the original, but it does serve as a nice companion piece.
| Original Score: 3/4
Splendidly envisioned and boldly executed.
| Original Score: 4/5
... not a "remake" so much as a "revisal," a new take on old material. The problem is, no one connected with the film seems to have any idea just what that "take" is.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
The movie creates little excitement, builds virtually no suspense, and altogether shuns any semblance of characterization.
| Original Score: 5/10
Easily the most extensively racist Hollywood movie produced in recent memory.
| Original Score: short
In a film at least tangentially about evolution it strikes me as poignant that in 31 years, this Planet of the Apes is actually a good deal dumber than the original.
| Original Score: 1/4
despite some wonderful moments, this Planet of the Apes isn't going to make anyone forget Charlton Heston sinking to his knees in the surf.
| Original Score: C+
You damn dirty apes! You remade it! Didn't you?!?
| Original Score: 5/10
Neither a thought provoking metaphor for racism, nor a jaw-dropping blockbuster loaded to the max with action.
| Original Score: 3.5/10
...will forever be remembered as one of the most unforgivable remakes I've ever seen.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
The technical wizardry redeems a largely uninspired script that resorts to a forced, nonsensical twist to fuel post-movie discussion.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Planet of the Apes rocked my world.
| Original Score: 5/5
This latest incarnation of the robust franchise is more entertaining and intelligent than several of the summer's other tentpoles.
Burton es mucho mejor cineasta de lo que El Planeta de los Simios deja ver
Call it a letdown, worsened by the forces of shoddy screenwriting.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
The fruits of Burton's imagination are almost always worth seeing on the big screen, but don't go expecting anything intelligent.
Stunning, amazing, Oscar-caliber makeup by Rick Baker; astoundingly flexible and natural, allows for great lip movement and facial expressions of the actors underneath.
| Original Score: 4
Its dialogue, action, and effects are as mired in formulas, clichés, and stereotypes as the simian world our hero finds himself imprisoned on.
| Original Score: 2/4
