Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011)
My Rating : 5/5 STAR
MovieStudio Quote >> “Mind blowing animation, unbelievable MoCap Expressions. Andy Serkis is the hero here!”
Will Rodman (James Franco), a scientist working in GenSys, a state-of-the-art laboratory, is desperate to find a cure for Alzheimers, since his father ( John Lithgow) is fast succumbing to it. He develops a wonder drug, ALZ 112 and tries it on chimpanzees. Everything seems to be going right until one of the chimps goes wild and needs to be put to rest. But before she dies, she gives birth to a baby which is smuggled home by Rodman for temporary care.
Rodman soon discovers that Caesar (Andy Serkis), the little chimp, has all the super intellligence of its mother and soon becomes an important member of the family, even as Rodman experiments with the wonder drug on his father and sees a miraculous improvement in him. Things however go terribly wrong when he tries a superior version of the drug which sends Caesar to a prison-like institution where he leads a rebellion against the humans who betrayed his love and trust.
“Rise of the Apes” is a completely new take on one of 20th Century Fox’s most beloved and successful franchises. Oscar®-winning visual effects house Weta Digital – employing certain of the groundbreaking technologies developed for “Avatar” – will render, for the first time ever in the film series, photo-realistic apes rather than costumed actors.
“Rise of the Apes” is an origin story in the truest sense of the term. Set in present day San Francisco, the film is a reality-based cautionary tale, a science fiction/science fact blend, where man’s own experiments with genetic engineering lead to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war for supremacy.
