Rise of the Planet of the Apes by Rupert Wyatt, 2011 (PG-13)

with James Franco (127 Hours, Milk, Eat Pray Love), Tom Felton, Brian Cox, Andy Serkis, Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire), John Lithgow, Tyler Labine, David Hewlett, David Oyelowo (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Lincoln)

This reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise is a prequel set in modern-day San Francisco, where scientists are conducting genetic research on apes. The evolved primates develop advanced intelligence and revolt against being used as lab rats.

Better than what I expected after having see the Tim Burton version of the "Planet of The Apes". It was interesting to see that they actually remained close to reality, with analyzed behaviors of Apes among humans experiments, only inserting a little bit of surrealism in the idea that a medication could alter their behaviors, in that case making them closer to human intelligence. The special effects are really convincing, you actually relates to the apes, orangutan and gorillas in a way you would with humans. The relationships are well built and despite of course the limited vocabulary of the animals, you get their dialogues and mimics in a natural way. Not bad after all.
