4.5 out of 10 Enjoyed it as much as the original ...
Aileen from Dublin, 16 May 2013
Having seen and enjoyed the original Planet of the Apes films some years ago we enjoyed this film very much. We didn't get to see it when it was released in the cinema but read good reviews. The story was plausible and the characters sympathetic and believeable. We really enjoyed it. The acting was very good and the story gripping and moved at a good pace, never boring. There is obviously a 'what happens next' element to the ending as this is only the start of of the history and a big gap to the story of the original 'Planet of the Apes'

4.5 out of 10 Brilliant
Seamus from Monaghan, 07 Feb 2012
I was a bit worried about this as I was never a fan of Planet of the Apes. This is not Planet of the Apes. The story is convincing and well told and the acting is brilliant. The story will hold your attention and there's enough action if that's what you want. Take time to watch the 'making of' bit on the dvd. Well worth a few minutes.

4 out of 10 Engaging
Paul from Dublin, 17 Feb 2012
Much better than I expected. Thought it would be predictable but the pace is just right and you feel for the chimp. CGI doesn't get in the way because the direction is so good. You just accept computer chimps and apes as part of the story even though sometimes the movements a re a little jerky.

4.5 out of 10 Simply Awesome
Mark from Dublin, 16 Jan 2012
One of the best films made in the past 5 years. Human characters are irrelevant so Pinto, Lithgow and Cox can be ignored. Serkis is the man. You know where the story is going, its all about how it gets there. Great credit to the franchise

3.5 out of 10 Monkey business
Philip from Dublin, 15 Jan 2012
This is a much better film than it might have been - an intelligent script and very good special effects (even if a bit over-reliant on CGI), makes this an entertaining and intelligent blockbuster.

What's it about....
Set in present day San Francisco, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man's own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.
