A look into the Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is an amazing movie. It’s a classic. It is absolutely insane, the storyline, the scenery, the emotion, the acting, all of it. I think one of the reasons why it is such a great movie is because of the emotion in it. It gets you wrapped up in it and for some reason it makes you feel so much for the different characters. It keeps you hooked. 

   The movie The Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes is directed by Rupert Wyatt and it was written by Rick Jaffra, Amanda Silver, and Freido Pinto. It was released in 2011 and there have been two other movies in this trilogy that have been released. Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes; 2014. War Of The Planet Of The Apes; 2017. 

   The movie is about a Chimpanzee named Caesar who becomes super intelligent due to a drug given to him that was designed to cure Alzheimer’s. Caesar is raised by Dr. Will Rodman, a scientist who is played by James Franco. He is raised as a science experiment and evolves into a leader of the apes which rebel against humanity. 

   After multiple inhuman and aggressive behavior Dr. Will is left with no other option but to take Caesar to an animal shelter. In the animal shelter he is abused by a zookeeper who finds joy in seeing these apes and chimpanzees suffer. In result they all get sick of it and find a way to outsmart the zookeeper and escape. Caesar then slowly starts to despise Dr. Will because he thought betrayed Caesar, when really Dr. Will had no option. 

   Caesar breaks into his old house and steals the rest of Alzhiemers drug and secretly distributes it among the other apes in his sanctuary. This drug enhances all of their intelligence, leading to the gradual empowerment and awakening of the ape community. The apes rebel against captivity and eventually establish their own society. The movie explores themes of animal rights in scientific experimentation, and the consequences of human arrogance and exploitation of nature. 

   There are a couple of reasons why this movie is so incredible. Compelling Storytelling; the film offers a narrative that explores themes like identity, morality, and the consequences of scientific experimentation. Character Development; people who watch this movie have no other option but to be drawn to the evolution of Caesar, as he transitions from a captive creature to a free leader. The growth of the character adds intense richness. The most influencing factor is the emotional depth in this movie. 

   The film evokes empathy and emotional investment from the audience, mainly in depiction of the struggles and hardships that Caesar and his fellow apes are put through. And the last reason is the relevance of the movie. The movie addresses issues such as animal rights, ethics in scientific research, and the relationship between human and nature, which makes it relevant. 

   “The Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” stands out. Directed by Rupert Wyatt and written by Rick Jaffra, Amanda Silver, and Freida Pinto, it provides a powerful cinematic experience. The film keeps viewers engaged from start to finish.
