"Three stars" (Roger Ebert). The "Planet of the Apes" franchise continues with this action-packed tale filled with cutting-edge visual effects.

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.
