Planet of the Apes (2001)

(Release Date: July 27, 2001)

My take on POTA

J.C. Mašek III
The World's Greatest Critic!
I think that the best possible review for the latest Tim Burton movie comes directly from the source material, Pierre Boulle's 1963 novel "Planet of the Apes."

"I soon succeeded in convincing myself that well-trained animals might well... become expert in in all the human arts, including the art of cinematography." -Pierre Boulle

Tim Burton was so wrapped up in the idea that this was about the apes, that he apparently was humanitarian enough to let a real live ape write the script.

The film was 15% Planet of the Apes, 15% Tim Burton, and 70% Hollywood Bull Crap.

The plot is thin, the dialogue ridiculous, and the ending a completely predictable insult to viewer intelligence. Fortunately the special effects (by Rick Baker) are perfect... so what you end up with is a lump of coal wrapped in pretty wrapping paper.

Two Stars for Planet of the Apes! A waste of potential!
