Just watched it tonight with Mrs Atlantia.
Very sad, very well done, great story, great way to set the scene for the revamping of this Sci-Fi classic.
Comnpletely recommend it! 9/10 and i wont give marks like that often!
I was pleasantly surprised by it.
All the little homages to the original were great. Bright eyes, the news reports of the shuttle being lost, Caesar playing with the statue of liberty toy, and of course an ape riding a horse, to name a few.
"A cat has nine lives. For three he plays, for three he strays, and for the last three he stays."
I enjoyed it to, just the CGI kind of annoyed me, looked a little bit too facky, but maybe that's how it was meant to be like?
I don't think that they had any choice with this one. I generally prefer make-up or animatronics (like when it comes to Cylons!) but for the part of the story where the Apes are still essentially 'apes' and not walking upright etc, they would have looked unbelieveable if not CGi.
I wonder how they'll do the next one?
'Animals' winning against people with guns was never going to play too well in Texas
We have enough apes in San Antonio, lol. But I thought the movie could have used a little more violent scenes, but it's PG13rating wouldn't allow that. I mean full grown orangatans (excuse spelling please) eat the faces, hands and feet off people. Remember the case of Bruno and the African guy who was attacked?
