Andrew's Review of Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Turned out to be a very good film. Got much better near the ending, probably because it ended in the best way possible. At the beginning, I thought that it would be good, but not great, because not too much was going on at the time. But around the middle, the film gets much better, packing more and more momentum, as well as more entertainment. The climatic moment ("Planet of the Apes") is amazing for its action and special effects. So if you don't like this film in the beginning, give it more of a chance. You'll probably be wowed eventually. That's how I felt.
