The biggest fault here is the premise itself. While not a direct remake, Rise covers similar ground to 1972's Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.
Nothing wrong with remaking a half assed movie like Conquest, Rise looks like a pretty major improvement.

What year is now William? Who the heck is going to like that movie now(Conquest)? Only sci-fi geeks like you and me? Rise looks like a major improvement!
Wake up from 1972!

Well, fine. If any movie deserved a remake, it's that one. The original was mediocre. If this one's better, I say bring it on.

You see, this is why you aren't a very appreciated critic. It's a remake so it isn't going to have a major different storyline, is it? Grow a pair, man!

If its not a direct remake, then why are you comparing it? Realize that this movie is genius! The story was great making the racist filled original look like what it was..... RACIST!
