While I did enjoy the story as a whole and the special effects were pretty good, I felt the lead up was far too long. There was too much build-up to the eventual take-over. I wouldn't even call it a take-over either. More like, a bunch of smart apes escaped. A lot of that could have been done in the first 30mins, it didn't have to take over an hour.
It's not a bad movie, it's just not great. Beats the Marky Mark planet of the apes film but doesn't really make me love this reboot.
Contagion. The theatre I went to messed up the movie with their equipment failures which made the movie less enjoyable. But overall I'll say it was worth my admissions ticket to watch it. 8/10. As I would've liked to see some more things in the movie.
In all honesty, it was a lot of fun. I remember seeing Cars when it came out in 2006 and marveled at how a children's film could be so entertaining to a bunch of 15-year-olds (which I was at the time, seeing it with a few friends). And now, five years later, it's sequel was more or less every bit as entertaining to me. Cars 2 has been given a lot of mixed reviews, with most of them erring on the negative side. While I agree that, in some cases, the car chases and action scenes stole away from the story and the characters, the film was incredibly fun and still managed to deliver a solid message throughout. And isn't that sort of the point of children's films?
Kurt Russel full beared is priceless :O
Well b4 the cinemastart of the remake I had to watch it. I must admit I really like such movies: limited space, thrill and aliens. Humans turn into evilish selfish and getting suspicious about everything and everyone. So in the end its an 80's horror movie with typical 80 overtuned music. Its a nice timefiller if you like those kind of movies.
And now I cant wait for the remake to hit the cinemas.
The risk with threads like this is that you get caught up on other peoples rating of movies you love.

OT: Saw Horrible Bosses, Green Lantern and Transformers: Dark side of the Moon this weekend.
Horrible Bosses: 7/10
I personally love "arrested development" and "its always sunny in philadelphia" so that might be
whats making me give the movie a 7/10. It has its moments but its not an AMAZING comedy.
Green Lantern: 3/10
I have a really hard time taking ryan reynolds seriously so he pretty much destroys the movie
for me. Other than that i thought it was a really un-interesting story they delivered and i caught
myself thinking about logging into wow and playing some arenas instead. Transformers: Dark side of the Moon:5/10
This movie delivers what its supposed to. Action, action and more action.
filled with special effects that makes you puke like a little kid on too much sugar
it gives you exactly what you expect. Nothing more.
Didn't really care for this too much at all. It was really middle of the rode. It tried to be shocking at many points but really just fell flat. Fortunately it's not overly long so you don't have to sit through it too long. There were a few good scenes but it wasn't anything special. The first one was better in my opinion.
