Ten years after a worldwide series of ape revolutions and a brutal nuclear war among humans, Caesar must protect survivors of both species from an insidious human cult and a militant ape faction alike.
J. Lee Thompson
The world is shocked by the appearance of three talking chimpanzees, who arrived mysteriously in a U.S. spacecraft. They become the toast of society, but one man believes them to be a threat to the human race.
In a futuristic world that has embraced ape slavery, Caesar, the son of the late simians Cornelius and Zira, surfaces after almost twenty years of hiding out from the authorities, and prepares for a slave revolt against humanity.
J. Lee Thompson
It is the year 2029: Astronaut Leo Davidson boards a pod cruiser on a Space Station for a "routine" reconnaissance mission. But an abrupt detour through a space time wormhole lands him on a strange planet where talking apes rule over the human race. With the help of a sympathetic chimpanzee activist named Ari and a small band of human rebels, Leo leads the effort to evade the advancing Gorilla Army led by General Thade and his most trusted warrior Attar. Now the race is on to reach a sacred temple within the planet's Forbidden Zone to discover the shocking secrets of mankind's past - and the key to its future.Written by
Upon looking at photos of the cast to get an idea for their makeup, Rick Baker said Tim Roth's makeup was going to be challenging because of his facial structure versus Paul Giamatti, whom Baker really loved for his expressive face. See more »
(at around 45 mins) As Leo and co. escape the city through the tunnels, they break through some boards covering the tunnel exit. One of the boards has been clearly sawn through and is broken at that point. See more »
Having never seen the original, I watched this movie many years later and the plot on its own is very entertaining.
The story flows well, and everything seems to make sense as the story keeps on going. I'm not good at judging effects, but I found everything quite believable. On top of it, I loved the atmospheres created (mostly because it is a Tim Burton movie but with less of his usual style).
The actors were incredible and sincerely, it was an awesome movie. I liked the plot, the actors, the directing and I think this movie is way underrated since it's being compared to the original which I heard is not even close to this plot. All in all, definitely worth watching!
