I believe the original 1968 version of "The Planet of the Apes" was the first time I realized that a film might actually be something more than an escapist entertainment. In fact, it might have something important and relevant to say to its audience. Indeed, that first film seemed to have something to say on a wide variety of topics: race relations, bigotry, vivisection, free thinking within an oppressive society as well as humanity's place in the universe. It made these points by using ironic twists, gentle humor and downright scathing satire; all wrapped within the context of an exciting sci-fi adventure story. The result was a classic piece of film making. An almost instant icon of 20th century pop culture that eventually spawned four sequels and even a short lived TV series.
So, when I heard that 20th Century Fox wanted to do a "re-imagining" of POTA my first thought was "Why?". Hadn't the first film gotten everything right the first time around? Why monkey (no pun intended) with something that was pretty much perfect already? Then I heard that Tim Burton had been assingned to direct and I thought that here was an ideal choice if you were going to re-imagine something as iconic as POTA. After all, he had done a marvelous job of revamping the image of Batman from that of the ridiculously campy to that of the more respectible avenging Dark Knight (only to have Joel Schumaker undermine all of that with "Batman and Robin"). While a re-imaging of POTA wasn't needed, I thought, it still might be interesting to see the results of such an undertaking from the capable hands of a director like Burton. Unfortunately the final product failed to meet my expectations.
The biggest dissapointment here is the script, no real plot and flat, one dimensional characters ...

I really enjoyed The Planet of The Apes, if for nothing more than the dark and brilliant world created by Tim Burton. Every frame is packed with so much detail and so much action you won't want to blink. What Burton paints with images, Danny Elfman matches with sound with yet another excellent score. But it's clear from the get-go that the real stars here are the apes who look and move so wonderfully realistically, you'll forget that they're not.
The makeup is so good in The Planet of The Apes it's hard to see the actor behind the mask. But this seems more an asset than a liability for the ape actors who all put in very strong performances. Unfortunately the 'human' actors are another story: Mark Wahlberg is clearly out of his league and depth here and really struggles to carry the lead. There's a scene where Wahlberg tries to rally the troops and he was so bad, it's funny. Estella Warren looks great but does very little in a role that is really not much more than window dressing.
As with many visually stunning films, more care and attention was paid to the look of The Planet of The Apes than the script, so we're asked to make some pretty big leaps of faith. The Planet of The Apes it's definitely NOT a movie to think a lot about when you leave the theater, as many plot points don't hold up well on re-examination. That said, I recommend The Planet of The Apes; it's a very enjoyable movie with a look you won't soon forget!...

I am aware that this film received a lot of criticism but I enjoyed the remake myself. Completely unimportant for me to provide my opinions on the acting or plot or to tell a summary of the movie. I only focus my reviews upon the quality of the transfer of the film to Blu Ray. I do have the Standard Def version and watched the new Blu Ray last night but this will not be a side by side comparison.

VIDEO...
Despite a lower than usual Mbps rate which appeared to average in the upper teens and lower twenties, the video transfer was clean throughout the film. I saw no artifacting in any area of the film and, especially during past paced scenes where stair stepping and aliasing might show up, there was none of that either. Film grain, which I usually notice went unnoticed for the entire film. Even in the darker areas, scenes were unblemished by video noise or grain. Color grading was fairly warm even in the shadow scenes and actually pretty natural.

AUDIO...
Any film that utilizes a lossless codec will always be superior to one that has a lossy codec. In 'Planet of the Apes' we get a DTS MA HD 5.1 audio which provided a very transparent stage for dialogue. I do watch on a 7.1 audio system that is fairly high end and the surrounds are nicely utilized in an encompassing manner. There is some discreet directionality for the surrounds and plenty for your LFE channel to do. However, the surrounds are used often but not necessarily in a discreet directional manner. For example, the sound of horses might be coming from both the rear channels but it sounded as if the same audio was used for both and not one horse on the right and another coming in on the left.

EXTRAs...Other than a commentary, which I did not listen to, there are no extras on the blu ray.

A poor adaptation of Pierre Boule's original book and of the original film starring Charlton Heston: there's no comparison and I don't mean that as a compliment. Another typical Burton caricature production which seems more like something prepared as advertisement for a McDonald's Happy Meal promotional toy collection.

The story now takes place on some distant planet instead of Earth where Mark Wahlberg lands by accident while conducting a chimp-pilot experiment. Trapped on what becomes a hostile ape planet, he gets help from good apes to fight the bad ones. Predictable plot, no character depth, and no real story worth pondering over; only a poorly directed bubble-gum film prepared for mass-consumption and aimed at your pubescent audience. I give it two stars only because the special effects were very well done. All of the satirical elements present in Rod Serling's original script have been removed to leave nothing of worth except stupid anachnronisms, placid human faces, and a simply atrocious screenplay. Whereas the original movie had a profound message about social evolution and ignorance, this movie is but a noble experiment in computer animation and nothing more.

It's fun renting it to watch one time; the second time you see that Burton is just monkeying you around. If you're counting on seeing an improved rendition of the original film, you'll be sorely disappointed.
