Nod. It's kinda like John Wayne. That's just how acting was supposed to be back then.
I hated the original one. It was terribly boring and just...blah.
I haven't watched another one since that one and I can't see why I'd start with this one.
You can blame a lot of that on James Franco, dude is terrible in anything but comedies.
Was he talking Franco or Charlton Heston?
I liked both...MHO
Ah, you're right. Misread.
Caught Dawn this past weekend with my son and I have to say that it was worth the price of admission. Very entertaining.
Saw it last night. Liked it a lot.
My only real gripes was it felt a little too long, and Gary Oldman was completely wasted. Why do you get an actor of that caliber for an insignificant role? It was just weird. He would have been much better as the Human lead.
He's been slumming it lately. Had a similar worthless role in Robocop.
Oldman is like De Niro, & Sam Jack...
he works... on many levels... Show him the money...
Yes He was wasted.....
Watched it again. Really like this movie one of the best I've seen in a while tbh.
Good step up in quality from Rise. Hopefully the next one will be at least as good.
Watched this past Wed (matinee... 2 tickets, large popcorn & coke... $20. Brought my own candy. Didn't want to pay $4.25 a box!)
Very good flick. The only parts I really disliked were with the ape attack on the human stronghold. The ape/2 automatic weapons/on horse was just too over the top.
Also there were times when the cgi was just too cgi.
But I enjoyed the story and was never bored even though it was a 2+ hour film.
yeah a cavalry attack on someone behind cover with automatic weapons. You are so obviously going to miss the huge targets that are horses.
My criteria for seeing a movie is simple.
Did Hollywood produce it?
Then I dont see it.
Sounds like everyone is looking foolish now.
Really good movie... And far and away better than the latest transformers
See I actually thought the action scene was fairly well done. The apes were getting wrecked in that fight, as they should have been. They were definitely losing the gun battle, and overpowered by brute force. I liked how the apes had horrible aim to boot.
The single camera shot from the tank that circled around the whole scene was awesome.
Only like 1 horse made it to be fair. All the other riders kinda got taken out fairly quick =p
I kept wondering all through that sequence, and the prior with the apes at the armory... "Why no sentry's at the bridge?"
I mean the humans knew the apes were out there and could be dangerous yet no one watching the bridge or at key points throughout the city.
And it's not like there weren't enough humans there to do the job.
I thought that was a big hole in the plot.
