Saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes the other day. I made my parents come with me. For some reason, in my hearts of hearts, I knew we were gonna love this film. My dad was staring longingly at the Cowboys vs Aliens sign.


 But I was right! We liked it! It was a solid delivery of a solid plot. The best way to describe it is Braveheart meets Monkey Trouble.


Caesar is a lovable, identifable protagonist. Humans are overall portrayed as good, if maybe not so understanding. There are real villians there, but just as many good guys. A good way to spend an afternoon out of the heat and  some time contemplating the ultimate fate of mankind.
