RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES - Blu-ray review
28 February 2012
Summary: The real meat of the movie is Caeser’s facial expressions. Whether it’s a slow blink as he’s turning his attention to someone or his eye’s quickly going from confusion to anger to confidence, you feel what he feels.
Excerpt: When I first saw the ads for “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” I had to think if it was the “new” series or if somehow Fox was making yet another installment in the original series. This wasn’t the smartest assessment as the original “…Apes” films are nearly forty years old now.
Summary: When I was young I used to love to eat oranges, but it wasn’t only the taste or the benefits of some good old fashioned vitamin C I was necessarily after. I would cut the fruit in half and then carefully peel the rind, attempting to keep the halves in one piece.
Summary: Fox redeems itself for the lackluster Burton ‘reimagining’ of Planet Of The Apes with this prequel, a film both stylish and smart and never lacking for entertainment value. Some strong acting compliments the effects and the storytelling and the presentation of the Blu-ray itself is pretty much...
Conclusion: Defying expectations, Rise of the Planet of the Apes is one of 2011's best films. Without being the most distinctive or ambitious production, this is unconventional and inventive enough to stand out and stir as few big summer movies ever have.
Conclusion: Really? What’s not to like/love here? With a 5-point movie (on my scale…the only one that matters in this review because it’s mine), luscious video, engaging audio and a Special Features department that will keep fans busy for several hours (with the commentary tracks), I ask you again.
Excerpt: The Movie Motivated young scientist Will Rodman (James Franco) has developed an experimental drug that enables the brain to repair itself through the creation of new cells, potentially a cure for Alzheimer's Disease and more.
Conclusion: 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' was terrific on the big screen, and continues to thrill on Blu-ray. I found the scripting, direction, action, CGI imagery to be grounded, effective, entertaining, smart, and exciting.
Excerpt: Ìóâè 43 ñìîòðåòü îíëàéí áåñïëàòíî There must come a time when the Academy recognizes Andy Serkis, not simply those creating the computerized imagery around him. Rise of the Planet of the Apes contains a single word that solidifies performance, a resounding, defiant “No” that will signal the end of...
Conclusion: A reboot of the Planet of the Apes series was honestly the last thing I wanted from 20th Century Fox—after the disaster that was Tim Burton's 2001 remake—but lo and behold, Rise of the Planet of the Apes is actually okay.
