Most of you must have seen this movie but I didn't feel like watching it when it was released as I had seen Planet of the Apes(2001) and was not very impressed.So I thought it would be something similar and didn't even bother to read any reviews about it.But I just saw this film and I am happy to say that I was previously wrong. It's a really great movie, brilliantly executed and a very nice storyline.The animated character Caeser is really awesome and brings all the onscreen emotions to life.It's facial expressions are very well created and depict every emotion from happiness,anger to sadness. I felt real sad and almost cried when they left him in the primate shelter and he pleads them to take him home.And I would have been sad all day long if I hadn't heard the words 'Caesar is home' from his own mouth at the end of the movie. It's one of the best movies I've seen and those of you who haven't seen it must see it as it tells much about the human nature and how we have started to believe that we are the sole owners of this planet and treat other creatures as if their life is worthless.

I have not seen this yet.. although it was quite famous when it was released, it also had a lot of bad reviews. is i a sequel or a prequel.. i did not really enjoy Planet of the Apes that much, which is why i also did not bother watching this.. But maybe now i will. thank you.

It is neither a sequel nor a prequel.It's a reboot of the Planet of the Apes series which will have it's own sequels.Just like the new Spiderman(2012).

Greyfalcon- RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES..is infact a prequel" to PLANET OF THE APES..it reveals how the heck the apes became smarter than human..so in RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.. they showed the audience what actually happened and the virus that killed all mankind ..not the apes..later the man who went to Mars will be back to earth..same like the original 70s Planet of the apes..starring Charlston Heston..(the 2001 version was a remake fo the original Charlston heston movie)

Oh, now it;s all clear.. thanks for the explanation rafiholmes. Did you watch the prequel? Was it good enough for you? I have always wanted to see a sequel.. I saw the remake (2001 version) when i was really young so i got confused with the ending. But wouldn't it be nice to know what happened then, after he found out earth was now filled with apes?

I've watched all of the Planet of the Ape movies and like the older ones better than the newer ones. They do make you think don't they?

Yup! they really do! I have not seen the old Planet of Apes(1968) which had 4 sequels but I will try to find them now. The Planet of Apes which I saw was a remake released in 2001.

Watch the original. It really stood up to the test of time. On the other hand, remake is just terrible. Can't believe Tim Burton made such a piece of crap.
