Oh man........ Everything about this movie was perfect. The action acting special effects story everything was there. Everyone says that the human across weren't that Good but I thought they were very good. But they were overshadowed by the awesomeness of Andy serkis and Caesar. Caesar is so awesome in this movie it's not even funny. Then there's koba.... Dude this guy is a rely bad dude but u can see his emotion and why he does what did an u start to feel for the dude. That being dad said u can't feel for him too much since he is a really bad dude. The special effects were completely amazing. I mean there's one shot of a close up of an apes face and I was like "holy crap that's a real apes face". Then there's the story. They did a very good job of keeping u hooked for the whole movie while ur on the edge of ur seat. I mean it starts out and ur like ok we've seen this before it's gonna be like this this and this. Then the movies Luke NOPE and his a completely different direction. Then ur like OK.... Is gonna be this this and this now. NOPE the movie games another sharp turn. It's like that the whole movie. I could probably tell about this movie forever but sadly I can't.

I always wondered why they keep on remaking these "Planet of the Apes" movies. There's been so many sequels and remakes that it's hard to take any of them seriously. But now I see why, it's because someone saw how good this film could potentially be. We have had to sit through countless remakes that failed to reach their potential, but we've finally made it. This film is the one that all of the fans have waited so long for. The "Planet of the Apes " has finally reached it's potential.

I thought the first one was lacking slightly but this one missed the mark completely. A night of drinking all but scrubbed the details from my head the next day (thank God) but this is what I do remember: I did not enjoy the movie at all. I love my pointless action movies as much as the next guy but this one reminded me of that during the movie. For example, yes Indiana Jones could have stayed home for the entire movie and the Nazis still would have died. Did you realize that watching it the first time, no.
