The original centered itself around some weighty ideas involving race, politics, and social class. Those same ideas may exist here, but director Wyatt doesn't really care.
First of all, "Christianity Today"? As a Christian, all I can say is WTF???
Secondly, this is not a direct remake of Planet of the Apes, so its not supposed to have the same qualities as the original. Its a complete re-imagining of the franchise, so it will contain different elements. You'd have to be an idiot if you couldn't tell that from the trailer.

Christianity Today saw the word 'evolution' on the one sheet and their heads exploded!

I could say the same about how Christians today interpret and practice the teachings of the Bible.

Why does "Christianity Today" even bother to write reviews on science fiction movies. Could there ever be one that it approves of??? Of course not. To actually like a sci-fi movie....well....just wouldn't be Christian. God would never allow an ape to speak and defend itself against cruelty. And anyone who makes a movie depicting such an anti-Christian act should receive a big green tomato spatter!
"The Cross and the Switchblade" on the other hand, is most likely to be on David Roark's "must see" list. No unrealistic fiction there.

I think alot of these are simply opinion and badly formed ones at that. Of course he makes us feel we're in the action, in a film such as this, it is important to feel involved. I thought the performances were brilliant and it was filmed well. No character development? How much longer do you want the lead-up to be? I'm pretty sure a connection to Caesar was well achieved. I think you have made an incredibly bad judgement of a brilliant, well thought-out film.
