This has been the first time I've been compelled to write an IMDb review. This movie should have about 6 stars and hopefully will before all is done.
There is very little war with the Humans, the actual fight scenes are full of glaring plot holes. Apparently our army cannot locate and fight a bunch of tribal apes despite having access to all the technology you would expect. I really wanted to see a more evolved Ape civilization, but they are almost taken backwards to create sympathy. This leaves the movie being a more political movie.
I should have watched Spiderman this weekend.
