We first see Captain Leo Davidson (Mark Wahlberg) training a chimpanzee in astronautics. Its inconceivable that an officer with such responsibility would be unaware of the taxonomic and cladistic difference between apes (including chimpanzees and humans) and monkeys (the New World and Old World monkeys). Yet he twice refers to his student as a "monkey". See more »

Don't expect high drama or Shakespearean quality dialog. There's lots of good action sequences, great special effects, and some nifty science fiction geek concepts (even if the pseudo science is a bit inconsistent).
The story isn't bad, has a couple of interesting twists on the original.
Any movie that features humans + animals tugs the heart strings a little too.
My only problem is that it really calls out for a sequel.
My advice: don't take it too seriously and you might quite enjoy it.
