Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes is a revolution; an action-packed epic featuring stunning visual effects and creatures unlike anything ever seen before. At the story’s heart is Caesar (Andy Serkis), a chimpanzee who gains human-like intelligence and emotions from an experimental drug. Raised like a child by the drug’s creator (James Franco), Caesar ultimately finds himself taken from the humans he loves and imprisoned. Seeking justice, Caesar assembles a simian army and escapes — putting man and primate on a collision course that could change the planet forever.
Mythology Of The Apes
The Genius Of Andy Serkis
Yes, there is violence in this movies but the focus is more on the relationship between humans and animals and learning how to co-exist together once the intelligence barrier is gone.
Not much to speak of.
Way too much.
Will Rodman (James Franco) thinks he has found the cure for brain related illness, such as Alzheimer's Disease. His early experiments on primates look very promising... until he discovers the treatment has given his subjects extra intelligence. Now the apes are smart enough to rebel and desire to reign over their human oppressors.
Pros & Cons
Lots of violence, more of a drama so the focus isn't on the violence but it's definitely there.
