Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a film with a fun and captivating story that is projected insanely with impressive information. I was surprised because I had a doubt in advance but this was answered in a positive way.

Will Rodman [James Franco] has not yet achieved the hoped-for result after 5½ years of experimental gene therapy in captive great apes. When one of the great apes breaks out and causes havoc, Steven Jacobs [David Oyelowo] orders them to stop the investigation and kill the great apes. Here we have to assume that no one noticed that one of the great apes gave birth, that Will is taking the baby home and that he has been able to hide it at home for 8 years. Anyone who can get over this great incredibility awaits a technically not yet entirely convincing, but also exciting, intriguing and intelligent update of Planet thanks to the sublime motion-capture game by specialist Andy Serkis and Karin Konoval, Terry Notary and Christopher Gordon. of the Apes (1968), with of course the necessary explicit references to that source of inspiration. Next: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Re-watched but now on a beautiful 4K transfer. It's actually a triptych starting with this version. It is also the first boot to display the monkeys differently. No monkey suits, but people who are transformed by monkeys by means of CGI and that has worked out very well. So I had already seen the film once and thought it was quite good even then. And I still think it's very well put together. And at times even terrifying. Wonderfully entertained again.
