    At first I thought this was another self-promotion.

    Just saw it last night. What a great film! This is more than just an FX movie. The film is a very thoughtful film, and you really feel for the apes in the movie. This is a much better film than the Tim Burton remake, and it plays well as a prequel to the original series.

    The reviews do match the numbers. I saw it last night and it was so good. It inspired me to rewatch the original Plane of the Apes movies. Andy Serkis was the star of this movie, his performance was amazing!

    Re: Demode – I agree completely. I'm no fan of heavy CGI films, but it hit me halfway through this movie that not only was the lead character CGI, but it was a CGI ape that I was fascinated by and felt sympathy for. I wasn't sure what to expect going in, but they did a hell of a job with this one.
