Critic Review - San Francisco Chronicle

It is not what could be fairly called a bad movie, but neither is it fine enough to be a good one, with its lineup of dull characters and a limp story that functions like a conveyor belt.

Were you hoping for a popcorn flick? You should be happy we actually got a summer movie with a great storyline, Got watch Sucker Punch if you want a limp story that functions like a conveyor belt

Exactly. Sucker punch was "bleh, high hopes and epic fail. This movie had an awesome origins story.

The point of a conveyor belt is to take a product from start to finish. We already know how this "conveyor belt" ends. This movie is about how it begins and it begins wonderfully. If you want twists and turns go else where, if on the other hand you want a movie that fits in perfectly with the mythology of the Apes movies, there is nearly nothing to complain about with this film.

Yes, a smart stataement...its wonderful to see how they used this re-launch/reboot to make an original "origin" adaptation, and not only that they used reference from the classic, and the sequels to create a NEW FOUNDATION. A beautiful possible trilogy to be....and I will and hopefully be watching this again.

You are wrong this time mr. LaSalle. This is a very entertaining movie full of humanity.
