Amazing FX! Those apes look like humans, but not completely human. It's amazing what they can do today when it comes to facial expressions!
James Franco is as lovely as ever, of course. But Freida Pinto is completely useless.
A touching story on top of that... even though I can't really tell whether it's a good story relatively to the Planet of the Apes sequels because I haven't see either the one from 1968 or that from 2001.
Still, I call this a success.
