Great prequel to the original Apes movie! Love the story of Caesar and his "Rise" to the top of the chain!

please be careful with this disk. my machine could not read the disk. i did notice that of the five disks that i have currently have this was the only disk that did not play. I also notice this disk did not have the white label of the Chicago public library. So I have to get another one.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes has some life to it as an action film, but every time anyone opens their mouth, man or beast, you'll feel like someone figured out a way to sneak in groundbreaking CGI into your middle schooler's class play. James Franco can't act either.

The Rise of the Planet of the Apes is one of the best of the Planet of the Apes movies. It was thought provoking in how it makes us look at our moral codes and attitudes towards animal testing. What I liked the most was the development of characters, in particular Ceasar. All his emotions are captured on his facial expressions from happiness, guilt, sadness, anger, to compassion. Andy Serkis is such a brillant actor. I've seen Rise of the Planet of the Apes at the theatre when it first came out. It was definitely worth seeing it again on DVD.

Wow! This is a fantastic science-fiction adventure movie and a new beginning for the Planet of the Apes franchise. Cool, well-written story that engages the audience completely. The acting is fine, particularly the apes. The effects are incredible but bringing in the subtleties of the motion-capture actors (as apes) is truly stunning.

I hate most movies & expected to hate this, but was surprised. Some of the writing was unusually original & thought-provoking. Some was cliche, & some parts were stupid...Such as the bus that blocks bullets. But overall I enjoyed it.

Gets a little silly on the end on the Golden Gate Bridge, but great characters that you actually care about.

Every time I watch a faithful reboot of an older classic, I tend to ask "why?" Are they too chicken to try something new?
This series debut is not bad, but why not go all out and do something wild and crazy, a surprise shocker that'll blow an audience out of their seats? Instead of a safe, mildly-tweaked script?

Surprisingly well-written. The story progresses nicely and enough insight is given as to why the Apes act as they do. They aren't a random species hell-bent on world domination 'just because' for example. Good acting and a good plot.

Will Rodman: Caesar. I'm sorry. This my fault. This has to stop. This isn't the way, you know what they're capable of. Please come home. If you come home, I'll protect you.

Caesar: [looks at the apes and to Will] Caesar is home.

Robert Franklin: Mr. Jacobs, please! I am begging you, don't do this!

Steven Jacobs: It would cost a small fortune to run lab test on all those chimps that would tell me what I already know! That they are contaminated!

Robert Franklin: Please, Mr. Jacobs! Lives are at stake! These are animals with personalities, with attachments!

Steven Jacobs: Attachments?

Robert Franklin: Yes.

Steven Jacobs: I run a business, not a petting zoo. Find the most cost-effective way to put those apes down!
