Rise of the Planet of the Apes(2011)

Extremely well done prequel to a film franchise we all assumed to be dead. Superbly choreographed action, a surprisingly moving storyline, and great visual splendor highlight what could possibly be the best action film of the year. For a film to succeed in making its audience feel empathy and emotion towards a character that is completely computer generated is a stunning achievement, and one that puts this movie on the map as one of the best of the year.
