Rise of the Planet of the Apes

This movie had a lot to enjoy, including a compelling father/chimp-son story, a nicely paced-out chimp prison story, and a crazy extended set piece of apes running rampant and kicking ass over San Francisco. James Franco is in it, looking weirdly both beefy and ragged. Another cool part is where the chimp-son is so hell bent on defending an Alzheimers John Lithgow that he causes serious personal injury to another person.

If you're like me, you'll certainly enjoy seeing Andy Serkis continue along his quick trajectory towards becoming the Daniel Day-Lewis of mo-cap.

  1. I always confuse Andy Serkis and Andy Kindler.
