Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes ( Film )

I cannot rate this film high enough.
If you have liked any of the previous Planet of The Apes films you are going to just love this one.
The film follows the life of Caesar a young ape who is illegally adopted by a scientist after his mother is killed during an experiment that is hoped to cure Alzheimer’s disease.

The mind altering drugs administered however have filtered through to the young ape and he very quickly starts to show amazing learning abilities.

Through a series of let downs and misunderstandings Caesar ends up in a primate zoo with a sadistic handler and decides to take things into his own hands.
The acting is superb all the way through and the apes are so life like but with just the right amount of human awareness to make them different and at times menacing.
After the treatment of the apes in the film you quickly find yourself on their side and can’t help thinking “yessss” when they achieve something.
However the most poignant bit of the film is the 30 second clip after the titles go up.
And the scariest thing of all is ..............

Technically this actually could happen...........
