Rise of the Planet of the Apes Blu-Ray / DVD Combo Review

Synopsis: 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.

Review: The Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a tear away from the vintage classics that made the Planet of the Apes popular.   This film features a chimp named Caesar who is raised in an experiment as hyper-intelligent. Portrayed expressively by the great Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings), Caesar really comes to life!  He cannot speak, but his expressions say it all.  The film focuses on his progression and eventual uprising and leading of the chimps to revolution.  This film is VERY sci-fi, but its cool and modern enough to be accessible by a mass audience, so everyone should be able to enjoy.
