A person is NOT an idiot if they don't like a movie you like. Do you idiots like ALL "Fresh" movies? Cause if you do, then it means you don't understand movies, you just follow public opinion.

"there is no reason for this movie to exist" I think thats what an idiot would say for they don't know what a move means.

@RussM. Before you call someone else an idiot, look who spells you're as your.

You're is a contraction, as in, you are an idiot. Hey, I'll even use it in a sentence for you.

As an Apes fan myself, "you're" making myself and other fans look like idiots. GTFO.

I strongly disagree, but I don't think he's an idiot. I'm sure he has some valid reasons not to like it. He should, he does enough reviews. I haven't seen too many movies on RT without a review from Cole. Besides, it makes the rating system more fair. The movie doesn't deserve a 100% rating so some critics need to not like it. I thought Transformers 3 was the biggest piece of crap I've seen in years and I know there's a lot of people who would call me an idiot for thinking that way, but it doesn't make me an idiot, it doesn't make me right or wrong either. It's called a personal opinion... you idiot lol.

There is even less reason for movie critics to exist, yet they do. I'll take "Apes" over critics any day.

George C, this is not a critique, and the man is not a critic, just someone looking to look rebellious and failing. There is nothing to dislike the film for. Taken for what it is, a film for for all ages, great excitement, and brilliant special effects, this film is just simply brill!

Wow. How egocentric is this guy anyway? On his website he claims he's the worlds smartest film critic, and he's selling an opportunity to have beer with him on eBay for $250. This guy feels way too highly of himself.

Is he really? That's hilarious! I wouldn't mind having a few beers with him and talking films. We may very much disagree on many things, but on this film I find his review spot on.

Dreadful, if you saw the original 'nuff said. hackneyed plot, terrible acting what the hell is James Franco doing, do you believe for one minute that he is a brilliant scientist? If you have a basic knowledge of science you know it's pure crap.

Letting an ape out of cage and then trying to throw a lasso around it's neck, com' on. Everyone knows apes are super strong and unpredictable.

Using Heston's classic lines as throw-aways, so amazingly unimaginative.

Stay home, don't get spanked by these monkeys that made this insulting bad film.

I agree that the recycling of the originals lines was hokey, but come on! Dreadful? If that was dreadful I hate to think of how you'd describe a Paris Hilton movie. And James Franco was fine. He's no George Clooney who would not be out of place playing a scientist, but he fit the role well enough and allowed the movie to do its thing.

I think you need to go back and watch the movie again so maybe this time you will understand what it's about. if not go and watch it again.the original movie end with a piece of the statue of liberty in the beach sand, wich means that i was less that 500 years since apes took over the earth, cuz the statue would have disintegrated over time. having so short period of time, the best way of getting smart is trough drugs. since evolution would take millions of years to give apes the brain. they apes wont speak cuz because they got smart 20 minutes ago. the average person takes about 1 year to learn the basics of a language, besides they never spoke a single word in the lives. ceasar was living with humans since birth. what he said at the end was more than enough to give the movie an great end. if you don't like it. go and make a fucking movie.

wow, i'm no movie critic, and don't know Fred P... but bang on guys. This movie sucked. It was so utterly unbelievable in so many ways that I had a stomach ache from holding back my laughter in the theatre. The couple in front of me were doing the same thing. Completely ridiculous film. Better title: Rambo meets Chimp. And apparently, Rambo Chimp likes wine country... hee hee - right, Ridiculous. Next....

Right. Because everyone knows sci-fi films are supposed to be "believable."

After reading a few of his other so called critiques this would be a sad world indeed if he were the smartest film critic. Did he actually watch the movie or just a trailer?

If you give a film 0 out of five when the average is 7 out of 10, how can you be considered a top critic? Personally, I thought the film was entertaining and a 7 out of 10 is what I would have given it if asked. We should entertain an opinion of 5 or of 9, but not 0!! How can this guy be a top critic? Its like being a football analyst and saying the Pats are the worst team in the NFL. They might not be the best, but no one would entertain the idea that they're the worst or take that opinion seriously.
Rotten tomatoes needs to take out some of these critics who say Thor is a 10 or this movie is a zero. Who agrees?
