Movie Reviews

Digital Spy - 10/10 by Ben Rawson-Jones This latest installment in the franchise is a near-perfect blockbuster that provides a myriad of visual and cerebral treats to devour.
Toronto Star - 10/10 by Peter Howell Wyatt's version, scripted by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (who previously teamed for The Relic), pays tribute to the original series without being bound by it.
NewsBlaze - 10/10 by Kam Williams A feel-good flick which proves that primates are people, too!
Ultra Culture - 10/10 by Charlie Lyne It moves in such a doggedly straight line towards its inevitable conclusion that they might as well have a clock in the corner of the screen counting down to the Big Rise.
Birmingham Mail - 10/10 by Graham Young This is, by some distance, the most exciting action adventure of the year. At just 105 minutes, Rise... shows how you can also make a rounded, full-blooded blockbuster in double quick time to leave audiences wanting more.
Time - 10/10 by Richard Corliss As both a simian simile and a wonder of technology, Rise of the Planet of the Apes deserves to be in the company of the great original "Kong." This year's sixth "origins" story of a fantasy franchise (after The Green Hornet, Thor, X-Men: First Class, Green Lantern and Captain America: The First Avenger) is also the year's finest action movie.
Horror.com - 9/10 by Staci Layne Wilson Serkis shows his chimp-chops here (having cut his teeth, so to speak, as King Kong), conveying everything from fear to forcefulness through his singularly expressive eyes (hm... are CG eyes Windows XP to the soul?).
TheWrap - 9/10 by Alonso Duralde Everything Burton's movie wasn't -- smart, exciting and thought-provoking, while operating in the realm of the movies' great misunderstood monsters.
San Diego Union-Tribune - 9/10 by Alison Gang Gives contemporary audiences the chance to embrace this cultural phenomenon on their own terms with (near) total seriousness and superior special effects.
CultureCatch - 9/10 by Brandon Judell In what is easily one of the better films of the year, director Rupert Wyatt, with a first-rate screenplay, melds thrills with wit and state-of-the-art special effects to create a flick you're ready to watch again as soon as it ends.
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN) - 9/10 by John Beifuss The familiar contagion plotline prevents the film from achieving the allegorical charm or cautionary impact of the 1968 original.
Contra Costa Times - 9/10 by Randy Myers Like Caesar, this entertaining picture rises to the occasion and resoundingly exceeds expectations.
