Rise of the Planet of the Apes

This was pretty great. When the movie came out in 2011 I thought it would be a weird badly made ape riot. I was wrong…

After a substance that creates high intelligence is injected into a chimpanzee the apes starts a riot.

Everything about this sounds weird, the plot the title and the fact that they have a bazillion apes in the movie. The thing was that it was not weird at all when you were watching it. I did think that this would be some sort of b-movie but I was impressed with pretty much everything.

The movie had good acting, it had its funny moments, the sad ones too and the plot was nowhere near as bad as I thought it would be. It did get a bit excessive at some points like the talking ape parts but overall this was a really good movie. I would not consider it a perfect movie but it is really good if you bring some popcorn to the couch while watching it. Without the right mood set to watch the movie I would probably give it a 7, but if you start the movie on an optimistic day and watch it to have fun this movie will actually be an 8 / 10.
