“Thank you Hollywood. Yet another movie classic utterly ruined by a cheap, shallow, effect-heavy and redundant remake. The original u0026quot;Planet of the Apesu0026quot; was an intelligent and thought-provoking movie with a very clear message. It was a movie that focused almost entirely on dialogue, which sounds very dull but was in fact very interesting. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis movie, on the other hand, seems to have done away with pretty much ALL the dialogues. Instead of a great movie we get an incredibly stupid two hour chase movie. Dialogue has been reduced to a mere minimum, character interaction and development are non-existent and most of the time itu0026#39;s extremely hard to figure out whatu0026#39;s going on. Instead, we get a bunch of pointless action scenes, some marginally funny one-liners and some very hollow quasi-intelligent conversations. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe only thing worth mentioning about this movie is that it looks absolutely fantastic. The make-up of the apes is magnificent, and the sets and backgrounds are beautiful too. However, this does not distract from the fact that u0026quot;Planet of the Apes (2001)u0026quot; is a very shallow and simplistic movie, filled with paper-thin characters, stupid dialogue and a nearly non-existent plot. Please Hollywood, stop ruining great movies by turning them into senseless blockbusters.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOh yeah, the ending did not make ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003en* out of **** stars, mainly for the visuals”
