Of the two recent updates on the Apes' franchise Rise hits the notes much better than Burton's misguided effort. In fact, it's even a little better than the original. Sorry, purists.
I liked both of the new ones, but Rise was better.
The orginal just didn't inspire the awe that Rise forces out of me through out. Both are good, but Rise is far superior.
Watched planet of the apes last night. Even though I enjoyed, it just doesn't stand up to rise of the apes. Serkis as Caesar is great.
Rise is an entirely different movie than the original For someone who was brought up on Twilight Zone, the original struck all the right chords. I have to say that Rise is good, but pales when compared with acting talent, story, humor, twist and the opening hunting scene bulldozes over that mediocre bridge fight in rise.
Rise is good,but it just doesn't have the beat the OG.
Rise wins. Quite frankly...I think it's the better movie.
These are easily the two best films of the Planet of the Apes franchise. It's hard for me to choose which of the two is better, but I have to lean towards Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I found its story more emotionally engaging.
Rise is good stuff, obviously, but the original is slightly more shocking in the depiction of the whole reverse "animal cruelty" metaphor. Some scenes remind you of the horrors of the colonial era. It's that effective. I'll take the first Apes flick although Rise is a massive improvement from the Wahlberg version.

The original, without a doubt. Rise was a great film, but after finally watching the original, it does reference the original quite a lot, doesn't it? Oh well, I still love it, but I like the original more. The acting is better, it's smarter (or at least feels like it), and I found its story more interesting. Again, RotPotA is a fantastic reboot, but I like the original a tiny bit more. And oh, Linda Harrison. Nuff said.
