Rise of the Planet of the Apes - Film Review

Home > Everywhere > Film Reviews
Published August 26th 2014
Suppose a child has been brought up in a society that was not intended for him. What if that child was an outcast? Undoubtedly he will seek the very reason for his existence. Imagine the remorse he feels when he discovers his mother was killed by those who he had come to trust. With ambiguity amidst animal instinct, self preservation emerges.

Between Caesar and Will (James Franco), there will cease to be an attachment as father and son. A matured beast seeking his rightful place to call home in his own kingdom. With this desire, Caeser begins uniting the apes, relinquishing him from memories full of abandonment, disgust and mockery.

One may ask was it possible for the human beings to regain control? Not in this situation where the serum was not only ineffective on humans, but further infected otherwise healthy subjects, creating the decisive disadvantage. Not only is Will helpless to protect Caeser from past humiliation, he is powerless in preventing Caesers revolt.

Caesar's lovely facial expressions were moulded from movie scenes of various characters. As well as sporting the best computer graphics of the year that contributes heavily to the success of this movie, the most tear-stimulating parts lie in the aftermath experiences of being raised-up, loved, and finally separated with previous family members who have now become enemies. Mankind never knew how many thoughts and potential the apes were embedded with. The humans only way out was to recognise the problem immediately and react by perhaps destroying the forest and all its primate inhabitants or by perhaps creating a world of harmony between both species. Eliminate or assimilate?

Based on concepts from the renowned novel written by Pierre Boulle and the very organic directing by Rupert Wyatt, this movie is a great recommendation for families.
