I have been waiting to finally see a film about the Planet of the Apes, and finally one came out. I was very excited to see it, as were I’m sure thousands of people. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed, there was not as much interaction with the Apes as I had liked, but I had to keep reminding myself that this was how it all began, from the moment the ape was born, so even so, I was still excited, and happy to see it. I have made it part of my DVD collection! If you don’t know what this film is about, here is the quick storyline.
At the story’s heart is Caesar (Andy Serkis), a chimpanzee who gains human-like intelligence and emotions from an experimental drug. Raised like a child by the drug’s creator, Will Rodman (James Franco) and a primatologist Caroline Aranha (Freida Pinto), Caesar ultimately finds himself taken from the humans he loves and imprisoned in an ape sanctuary in San Bruno. Seeking justice for his fellow inmates, Caesar gives the fellow apes the same drug that he inherited. He then assembles a simian army and escapes the sanctuary – putting man and ape on a collision course that could change the planet forever.
I am so looking forward any sequels that may come out! I hope you enjoyed this edition of A to Z Challenge, have a great weekend!
