Critics reviews

This is where Tim Burton’s misguided 2001 take on Planet Of The Apes comes in—more specifically, its opening credits sequence. Designed by Robert Dawson and set to one of Elfman’s more aggressive and sinister themes, the sequence is an object lesson in pre-show hype, playing up the film’s admittedly overqualified cast and the involvement of such big-name behind-the-scenes talents as effects designer Rick Baker and costume designer Colleen Atwood.
