    This movie is bad, but I really love the makeup. It's unlikely we'll ever see another movie that looks like this due to the advent of more sophisticated CGI. They should have just done a word for word remake of the original. If you haven't seen the original yet give this one a pass until you have. 10 years 10 months ago

    The only thing in it that is better than in the original is the make-up. Uneven writing and acting brings down the good visuals and an intimidating villain. Entertains but has much wasted potential. 10 years 9 months ago

    I saw it back in the day and it made me swear off Burton's movies forever more. Forcing myself to watch Apes 2001 reminded me why. It's perhaps unfair to evaluate it as a science fiction parable, because it doesn't have a clear message. As SF adventure, it fails as well, because it's so full of plot (and premise) holes, sure, but mostly because many of the leads are so dull. Wahlberg is nowhere near the screen star Heston is, and his character is an emotionless cipher and not the moral center of the film he should be. Tim Roth is way over the top as the villain and quite irritating. Some of the other apes (Bonham-Carter, Clarke Duncan, Giamatti) are much better, but their talents are wasted in a muddled effort whose best quality is perhaps that at least it didn't try to remake the original's story. Then again, maybe it should have. It would have been redundant then, but at least it wouldn't have been terrible and boring. 8 years 11 months ago
