Player Affinity writes: Who would have thought the worst titled movie of the summer would also be the best? But Rise of the Planet of Apes has it all. It's a magnificent film with breathtaking special effects, exceptional pacing, and a ton of heart. Andy Serkis deserves an Oscar for his incredibly realistic, motion-capture portrayal of Caesar, the ape who leads his kind out of the zoos and cages and into a place of power. The film is almost like Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith in that you know how the story ends. The pleasure, of course, is getting there.
