"Three stars" (Roger Ebert). The "Planet of the Apes" franchise continues with this action-packed tale filled with cutting-edge visual effects. While working on a cure for Alzheimer's disease, scientist Will Rodman (James Franco) tests an experimental drug on chimpanzees, giving them human-like intelligence, but also making them wild. Will takes a baby chimp named Caesar home and raises him like a child, but when Caesar is taken away and imprisoned, he assembles a simian army and leads a ferocious revolution against mankind.
Co-starring Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton and Andy Serkis. Directed by Rupert Wyatt; written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
