This film proves that we cannot rely on animal experiments to save our lives. Apes and humans are alike in many ways, but not where it counts, according to this film.

I loved it! It was shocking, loving, angering, comical, and all around entertaining.

One thing that was cheesy is the fact that the following words were uttered, “Get your hands off of me, you damn dirty ape!”.

I guess each filmmaker that takes on this film feels obligated to pay homage to the original with this line, but really, we could have done without it. We know it’s a remake.

The end of the film not only gives you the idea that their may be a sequel, but it also illustrates how viruses and disease so easily spread throughout the world. If you love sci-fi and hated Tim Burton‘s version you absolutely must see this film!

It’s in a class by itself.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
