Movie Reviewlette: Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Special effects evolve another step further

Product Reviews

Rise of Planet of the Apes was pretty good. Two main points

  1. It was not a string of loud action scenes. There was some pacing, character development and story. Reminded me of the flow of “Batman Begins” vs the other Batman movies. Or Spiderman 2.
  2. The apes were AMAZINGLY well crafted CG from the LOR, King Kong and Avatar folks. We can now enable people play animal parts very well. They used arm extensions and actually brought actors suited up in motion capture suites onto exterior action sets. One more step closer to being able to do people, if we so choose and if it entertains. We’ll see soon.
