Am I the only person in this world that realizes that this movie was crap? Just wondering... becasue I think people have just somehow convinced themselves that this movie was inovating and charming when really it looks like it was made by highschool students.
What may only seem to be a modern day gangster movie, turns out to be an emotional bomb that explodes during the final stages of a downward spiral to destruction. Justin Timberlake IS an acter and should be praised.
This is what every film finatic should want from a prequel! I was enchanted by every emotional turn in the movie, feeling that the choices Ceaser makes are somehow my own, and when the apes start rioting, I want to jump out of my seat and join them. What really sold the film was great acting from the entire cast, (John Lithgow is as strong as ever) and almost life like CG monkeys whose facial expressions talked to you greater than any words or actions could. Also when the film is over don't leave your seat right away because theres a short epiloge after a few credits, and it brings alot more light into how the apes took over.
Rewatched this movie with a few friends and just then realized how intense and bloody this movie is. What was unexpected the second time I watched it was, that I was having fun cheering with my friends while the French brutaly beat zombies with their bare hands or anything else they could find a.k.a. refrigerators!
