A brutal, primal place where apes are in charge and humans scavenge for subsistence, hunted and enslaved by the tyrannical primates. The sudden appearance of one man, alien to the present order and unaffected by its oppression, serves as a challenge to the status quo and a catalyst for revolutionary social change.
Sci-Fi Action Adventure - A sci-fi classic reborn. The level of action and special effects
should appeal to all fans of this genre. Anyone who enjoyed the
original "Planet of the Apes" films will almost certainly enjoy this
action packed remake.
PROFANITY: Only a few very mild profanities. SEX/NUDITY: None VIOLENCE: Quite a bit of brutal killings by the apes, nothing too graphic or bloody. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: One three second scene of apes smoking pot. ACTION: LOTS of action throughout. COMEDY: Only a few mildly humorous remarks.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
As could be expected, the guys enjoyed this movie the most, giving it very high marks. Another expected was the very low opinions of a few moviegoers. This type of sci-fi movie (far fetched, i.e. talking apes) always has some people who give low opinions. I suspect most of these are from those who aren't big sci-fi fans who attended this movie with a sci-fi fan.
As for the ladies, only around half truly enjoyed the apes. Luckily only a few rated it very low.
The only recurring negative comment was that they didn't like the ending, but there were actually almost as many positive comments about the ending.
If you have any interest in "Planet of the Apes," then I recommend it. I believe most will enjoy it very much.
