    My wife and I saw the movie (which was packed) last night and we both loved it. In my opinion, it is the best movie this year, and that's saying something because I really like Transformers 3.

    I'm going against the mainstream, I give it a C or a very low B. It was way too predictable and devoid of humor or originality to be exciting. The ape graphics were very good, but the antics were too exaggerated to be believable.

    What a bummer that the strong story and effective telling in the first 1/3 -- in which we're told that apes are superior to humans -- turns into a CGI-fest with WOWEE destruction and aggression from the apes. A for the first 1/3, D after.

    A start fresh prequel to the iconic last scene of Charlton Heston's mind-shattering revelation in the original 'POTA'. The good: special effects, plausible story ,ape performances, Bad: ridiculous timelines,leaden Franco acting.

    Basing this on story alone, "Rise" presents a much more plausible and less cheesy origin story than the original series. Franco wasn't too bad, either. Fans of the originals will enjoy the many references.

    Sorry Matt, the original wasnt cheesy. Why can't nuclear bombs would cause the end of humanity in a movie made during the Cold War? Rise stayed true to the spirit of POTA 4 and included many key elements to the original origin story. Go see

    @Debbie: The cheesiness I was referring to was the original "rise" being born out of man turning to chimps as pets after a disease wipes out all cats and dogs.

    This movie will work for you depending on how convincing you think the chimps are. If you sufficiently suspend your disbelief enough,you can find it moderately enjoyable. It's too noisy, and too predictable, but I would recommend it.

    This might not be like the other views but I thought it wasn't good at all. The idea wasn't like I expected and everything changed so quickly. Not my recommendation!

    not as good as the one with mark walhberg but close enough to match it.
