Are you interested in seeing RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES?

Big-time! Looks like tons of fun!
I will definitely see in theaters, but I'm not sure what to expect
I'm 50/50 on this one. Will wait to hear the "word on the street"
Meh, doesn't interest me much. Maybe on home video!
I'll download this illegally and see what's up
No friggin' way. Looks pretty putrid!

Good surprise

I saw the movie today and it's a pretty good surprise, with references to the original classic ("Take your hands of me you dirty apes", the Icarus mission...) that means we're in real prequel territory here. SFX are incredible, the casting is good, the story works and the emotions are here too... Ho, and MOST of the questions you're asking yourself in the previous posts are answered, people, don't worry, and in a very logical and plausible way.

Like I said, a good surprise (and a obvious upcoming nomination for best SFX... Still, with TRON LEGACY forgotten last year, WHO KNOWS ?!).

I like the older "Apes" films because even though they're big Hollywood action/scifi movies they try to add in some deeper themes and social commentaries. If this follows the tradition then it should be a great alternative summer release.

Ive seen it

Ive seen it already...wait no I havnt I just feel like I have after watching the trailer that shows practically every major scene in the film, the trailers infuriated me so much because of how much it shows, I find it insulting

apparently the trailers only show events that happen in the first HALF of the film

Well the trailers show, indeed, quite a lot from the movie, but far from the whole story...
Sad but true, nowadays, it seems like the "average" people want to know most of the film via the trailers, BEFORE actually seeing the movie, proof beeing, most of the good movies with cryptic trailers bomb at the Box Office !

have no interest in the movie whatsoever & this entire franchise never really has, i find them to be an excuse for political propaganda we don't need in movies of this kind.

Since we all know how it ends, what really is the point??? Ape gets serum from Harry Osborn. Gets smart. Rallies more apes, humans lose. The end. Do I really need to see how good new CG apes can look on the big screen?

I'll rent it at some point.. maybe.

The only thing I'm remotely curious about is how they're going to attempt to "logically" explain the apes taking over. Like why the seven billion of us don't just shoot and kill the few dozen of them, for example.

not gonna happen

I'm all for flights of fancy and imagination gone wild concepts but am I the only one that this whole concept just rubs the wrong way? It would take some type of natural disaster wiping out 90% human population for me to believe that even genius apes would take over the world. There's just too many of us and too few of them.

I went with choice #2, but I wanted "Dying to see it, but won't be able to in a theater." This looks way fun. Only negative from me is the PG-13 rating. The outcome of that gorilla jumping into that helicopter should be R-Rated all the way. Nature's revenge on humanity = Me watching. Ugggh, just remembered that M.Night flick . . .

It's not R, but it's "hard PG 13" nonetheless ! And the story don't need more violence or blood to be good, here.
Just my opinion of course!
