The visual effects on the CGI apes look good from its short preview. You get a chill down your spine when first see one of th apes taking on human-like qualities. Given that its from the same company behind Avatar and Lord of the Rings, its no surprise the Oscar-winning visual effects team delivers in the tease.
A single act of both compassion and arrogance leads to a war unlike any other -- and to the RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. An origin story in the true sense of the word, RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES is set in present day San Francisco. The film is a reality-based cautionary tale -- a science fiction/science-fact blend where mankind's hubris leads to the development of intelligence in apes and the onset of a war between human and beast.
