This is an exciting and fresh start to the lost franchise. At least It not as complicated as it's predecessors. It is very important for a movie to able to make the audience understand what and why exactly are the things happening on screen rather than leaving with unanswered questions which is very important for a origins story. Rise of the planet of the apes is successfully is setting it's first step towards a very bright and successful franchise. Kudos to the director and writers to make origin's story to tell us what and why things took place as it did in the previous movie. This was more like the origin story of Caesar which well portrayed by Andy Serkis who I hope will get the recognition and awards for the effort he has put in the movie. The rest of the characters did play their respected roles at their best but could have done better because as you leave the theater you only have Caesar in mind and the rest have been forgotten which shows their was no major impact and director could not make use these to his best interest. And the motion capture CGI technology was the best part of the movie. Altogether the movie was very engaging!!!!!
The change-up follows up with the rest of the body switch movies and yet continues to another failure at this subject How many times can hollywood put out a body/mind swap movie? Why should we go to the cinema when I could watch the same jokes in any of these;- A Walk in My Shoes All Of Me, 13 Going on 30, 17 Again, 18 Again! Like Father Like Son, Vice Versa, A Saintly Switch, Alison's Birthday, Body Switch, Freaky Friday - Mother and daughter. Disney has produced several versions: 1976, 1995, and 2003. Dame Tu Cuerpo, Day Watch, Dating the Enemy, It's a Boy Girl Thing, Switch, Sister Switch, etc Well we did get a couple of laughs but It was very much predictable from start till the end!!!
