God this movie was good. I can’t stop thinking about the themes of power, devotion, morality, and misunderstanding. They really made the audience connect with the characters, especially Ceasar the ape.
His character arc really played out well from the death of his mother, growing up, wondering about his origin, feeling a sense of inequity, and finally ending with questioning his status as a “pet”.
James Franco’s character was the “good” human who understood Ceasar like no one else did and treated him like his own son. He played this role really well, you can really see the devotion in his eyes. God Franco is awesome. Yes I am a little bit biased because I am a huge fan.
I am going to say it… this is my favorite summer 2011 movie so far =0
