Rise of the Planet of the Apes - the start of it all

RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film 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.

The movie stars James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo and Andy Serkis.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes, yes we know what will happen after this movie, but do you what did happen before the apes took over Earth.  A prequel to blow your senses.  The CGI played its role and it was indeed flawless.  I believe the characters especially the people who portrayed the apes were trained well and indeed they would fool you as real apes.  The movement of the apes were very near real apes.  Even though we know that apes in real life are really not that aggressive, but the movie shows that through aggression, animals could lead to further violence.  

The storyline was based primarily on Planet of the Apes, on how Earth came to be at that state, the original one and the remake which starred Mark Whalberg presented the future aspect of what was to become of the human race and Earth.  In the end, it all comes to us that even though how advanced or intelligent we may be, instincts will always come first.  And that is proven here in the Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Now showing in your favorite cinemas.  Directed by Rupert Wyatt.  Brought to us by 20th Century Fox.
