    Burton Goes Ape

    A rather unimpressive adaptation of Pierre Boulle's original political satire and of the original 1968 film adaptation. This version is less than inspiring in all aspects except for its special effects. Although this version could have further explored the satirical elements of the original novel and film on the question of civilization and social evolution, these important elements are relegated to jingoistic one-liners and sound-bytes that are further eroded by over-the-top CGI graphics. There's simply no comparison between this script and Rod Serling's brilliant script for the original film. The make up of the 1968 version seemed more realistic than the glittering computer-enhanced costumes in this version. The logical inconsistencies are also overwhelming in this film. For example, Why would the apes need to ride horses if they can run faster and longer than the horses themselves? A big disappointment altogether.

    the best of the best

    Now i know what you're thinking. Planet of the Apes? This looks stupid. It's not. I was surpurised at how good it was. It came out of nowhere and made my favorite movie of all time #1. Besting the previous one (Darkman) by so many good things. Great style really funny one-liners and a great villian. I don't know how the hell Tim Roth did so well as a bad guy. I highly recomend buying this. The DVD is great, the special features are tight. And it's the #1 dvd sale at Tower Records. GO BUY IT!!!!!

    TWENTY FIRST CENTURY APES

    BRAVO TO TIM BURK FOR RECREATING SUCH AN EXTRORDINARY FILM MARK WALBERG WITH HIS BOYISH GOOD LOOKS AND SERIOUSMINDED LOOK ALL THROUGH THE FILM WAS EXCEPTIONAL!!! HE REVIVED THE WHOLE MOVIE BROUGHT IT BACK FROM THE MOVIE ARCHIVES . THE FAST PACE OF THE MOVING LEFT NO TIME FOR BOREDOM IF YOU TURNED AWAY FOR A MOMENT YOU WOULD CERTAINLY MISS A CERTAIN LOOK FROM CHRIS CHRISTOFERSON OR A CERTAIN LOOK UNDERNEATH THE MAKEUP FROM CHARLESTON HESTON. OR BETTER YET THE DYEAR ON THE ODAMETER OF THE SPACESHIP THAT WOULD TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED WHEN MARK WALBERG LANDED ON THE STEPS OF THE LINCOLN MONUMENT IN WASHINTON D.C. BRAVO TO EVERYONE INVOLVED THIS IS DEFINETLY A KEEPER FOR YOUR LIBRARY!!!

    a kick ass flick

    this is my favorite movie of all time. I saw it twice just to understand what happened in the end. I think Tim Burton gave all the elements in it: Comedy, Drama, Action, Suspense. Buy it for gods sake.

    Monkey Love

    It may have a couple of problems here or there, but this film is great entertainment. Kudos to Tim Burton for creatively retelling the story in a whole new way, not some hackneyed re-make. Lookling at the DVD specs here, I'll pre-order this one, too. Maybe it'll get me straight on who was playing who :). Tim Roth and Helen Bonham Carter were tops, they are great actors and their portrayals shine easily through the best monkey-makeup yet. It has plenty of action and humor, but it was also thought provoking. It was the most entertaining sci-fi I've seen in a long while.

    My favorite movie

    This is my favorite movie that I saw this summer. I am really looking forward to the DVD because I read that it has a lot of stuff about how they made the people move like apes. They looked so real, and the evil ape was my favorite character. The ending was really cool too.
