THE PLOT:

When a test subject is lost in a space anomoly, Captain Leo Davidson follows him to discover that it was a hole in time and the station over the alien world has crashed and the apes test subjects have evolved and rule over human kind. Leo discovers a mad chimp named General Thade is on a holy crusade to wipe out the last of humankind unless Leo and a rag tag rebel force can stop him.

THE OPINION:

Allthough the make up effects were incredible, I feel that the writing and the storyline strayed way off the original, too much in fact. Plus, Tim Burton made this movie too dark. My biggest gripe is with General Thade, he's a chimp and in the original movies, chimps are pacifist, they don't fight. Let alone approve of genecide. Over all this remake is a exciting and sloppy mess.
I GIVE IT (6 STARS)

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS)

+ MAKE UP EFFECTS (The first make up was good, but this is a fast improvement)
+ OTHER EFFECTS (The model effects is also cool)
+ EXCITING (It isn't dull but any stretch of the imangination)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSESS)

- STRAYED TO FAR FROM CONCEPT (It strayed way to far from the concept of the original movies)
- SLOPPY (The plot was all over the place, it wasn't focused)
- ORIGNAL CHARACTERS (I kinda missed the orignal characters like Zira and Cornilius)

And Finally:

- GENERAL THADE (What's up with this maniac chimp? Changes like this makes me wonder if the writer and the Director even say the orignal movie)
