And so we get to the part of the series that inspired the recent reboot films.
It’s not as good as the first and third films but it’s still a decent origin story. It’s also going to be interesting when I get to Rise of the Planet of the apes to compare the two films.
The strength of the film is Roddy McDowall’s performance as Caesar. The performance is very different from his role as Cornelius in the previous films and it’s nice to have at least one actor from the first film sticking around.
I don’t have much to say about this film right now but I expect that will change when I have something to compare it to. One more film from the original series left now.
