Many years in the waiting, finally the Planet of the Apes remake made it on the screen after years and years of lingering, it ended up with a Burton directed, Wahlberg staring ...meh...film. In this remake, an ape constantly referred to as a monkey that is being trained to fly space ships ? is lost and Mark Wahlberg's character Leo goes after him only to find himself in the future. Like the original he is chased by the apes and rounded up with a group of primitive humans. We see Burton's vision of Ape Planet, and the film makers decided to go with make up and prosthetics instead of CGI, it was a good call as the CGI would not have been up to par in 2001, the new Planet of the Apes showed it was possible to make great CGI apes, but that is now, and this was then. This film again suffers from a watered down and confusing social and philosophical commentary, the caste system is gone, gone is the conflict of race, nuclear war and religion. Instead there are call backs to some of the other Ape films, with humans as pets etc. The humans however primitive do not act that way so again there is some confusion, and the twist at the end is funnier than it is original, the movie lends itself to some silliness that has a B movie quality to it, so it is watchable, but is very much more inferior product.
