by at . Comments

A triumph. A marvel. A feast for the eyes on so many levels.

So gushes our sister site, Movie Fanatic, regarding Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a film that hits theaters today and whose use of technology is simply breathtaking.

Forget James Franco or Freida Pinto, the true star is Andy Serkis, who truly makes viewers feel something for Caesar, a chimpanzee come to life via scientific experiments and nuanced facial expressions.

While it may offer one too many nods to the 1968 movie on which it's based, this reboot stands on its own, delivering pure summer pleasure for all who buy a ticket. Read Movie Fanatic's detailed Rise of the Planet of the Apes review now!
