The original 1968 Planet of the Apes is a classic, and always will be. It was new for the time, and was an extremely fresh and exciting look at the future world. Is this a good film? No. Not at all. This isn't even hilariously bad, it's just a flat-out terrible film. The script is the worst. 30 years ago, this film would've been great, but this is supposed to be a serious film, and the way it is presented doesn't allow it to be taken seriously. This looks like a film that should've been made in the 80's, thanks to its terrible acting and cheesy ending, as well as the horrible jokes that are meant to deliver but fail to send. The action is dull and boring, colorless and uninventive. It's nothing that hasn't been seen before, and Burton has proven on numerous occasions that he can do far better. A bunch of monkeys jumping around like frogs and hitting each other isn't appealing anymore, and while it may have worked three decades ago, it certainly doesn't now. The characters are also insanely bland, acting as clichés for the story. None of them have any major development and are simply used as plot devices to move the story forward instead of characters you can actually care for. Don't bother watching this garbage. It's not worth your time.
