Movie Reviews

  • though markedly better than 2001's Tim Burton reboot, this apocalyptic entry has a trickier road ahead, relying on positive buzz and sheer spectacle to win over skeptical auds
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • this reboot is worth watching
    3 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • these apes may be smart, but with the exception of Caesar, they're really just effects. They never make you wonder who the maniacs are
    Review rate : B- by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • there's no momentum to the film, no sense of a build-up to an all-out war. Rise of the Planet of the Apes throws out references to previous Apes films to amuse hardcore fans
    2 of 4 by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald ]
  • the movie rises and, at times, even soars
    3 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • strong action, special effects and by far the most credible ape "performances" yet seen will spell box office to inspire chest-thumping in all markets
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • it's so brilliantly executed as to render the original version of this sequel-prequel in the apes epic
    3.5 of 4 by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel ]
  • it's smart dumb fun, if that makes any sense (and admittedly, it might not)
    3.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • a shamelessly fun B-movie with A-movie effects
    3 of 4 by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
