Rise of the Planet of the Apes was basically two movies — one good one about Andy Serkis’ loveable Caesar and one lousy one about James Franco being a really, really terrible scientist. I’ll never understand why movies about scientists refuse to do their research. A guy plays a garbage man and he’ll spend six months actually hauling trash to get into character, but when it comes to scientists Hollywood is all, “eh, lab coats, Star Trek-ish setting annnd we’re done thinking about it.”
Anywho, here’s everything wrong with Rise of the Planet of the Apes…
If James Franco pops up as a surprise character in Dawn, I walk out of the theater.
Cue the “Baw, I like Honest Trailers better!” comments!
