Rise of the Planet of the Apes / by Rollie Agado

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for the “Planet of the Apes”  movie series…

 Over the years, I got around to seeing all the original ones from the late 60’s and early 70’s.

The first installment had always been my favorite because of its social-climate message.

"Battle For the Planet of the Apes" had always been my least favorite…   and I had completely given up hope in any reboot efforts after seeing the Tim Burton "Planet of the Apes".

"The Rise of the Planet of the Apes" has sorta revived my interest in the series.  I just finished watching it along with my friend Chivo and we both agreed that it was surprisingly good.

My favorite part was hearing Cesar say “No!” when handing down a cattle-prod-beatdown onto the Chimp handler.

Looking forward to the next one and I may have to go out of my way to see it with Jaime in Detroit.  He’s possibly the biggest fan of the series that I know.
