Having a partner who is obsessed (and making me obsessed) with Sci-Fi, I have been schooled in the Planet of the Apes (PotA) franchise. And for the connoseiurs, this includes the ill-fated PotA TV series.
What has been a very popular book is turning out to be a shocker of a movie. I’ve been trying to put my finger on what it is. The story has merit. It’s interesting, dramatic, adventurous. The cinematography is more than adequate, with colour and camera angles used to convey themes of the scene.
