Man learns a harsh lesson about meddling with Mother Nature in Rupert Wyatt's splendid new chapter in the Planet Of The Apes saga, based loosely on the novel by Pierre Boulle. Drawing elements from different films in the original series made famous by Roddy McDowall, Kim Hunter and Charlton Heston, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes takes advantage of the latest technological wizardry to deliver a thrilling action adventure that doesn't skimp on heartbreaking emotion. It's all a far cry from Tim Burton's abortive 2001 remake of the original film - a creatively ambitious but structurally muddled folly doomed to failure the moment Mark Wahlberg was cast in the lead role.
