Clearly underrated is this film from Tim Burton. This is a majestic thriller. The climax was really a shocker. This was the first Planet of apes film that I have seen.
None really understood the climax- a lot of my friends complained that the film's climax was too sense less. They mostly did not like the idea of apes behaving as modern day humans. It means that Wahlberg traveled through dimensions in the space ship and reached the future of the planet of apes where the apes developed that much intelligence that they live almost like our modern day man. The critics always have a habit of criticizing anything they didn't fully understand, that is what happened with Cloud Atlas. Blade Runner was a film made by Ridley Scott. Upon release the film received lots of flak from critics because they couldn't understand it. Now Blade Runner is one of the most cult followed and critically acclaimed classics. I do not expect this Planet of apes version to have such a grand fan base in the future, but people may understand that it is not entirely stupid.
The only problem that i felt here was that the film has some idiotic humour sense as in the case with the most senseless Burton made 'Mars Attacks' (1998). You could actually experience the helplessness of Mark Wahlberg's character. The special effects are good too.
