Great work from Rick Baker (I think it was the original Planet of the Apes that first got him interested in special make-up fx), but the overall production design is just depressing. Nothing really catches the eye in this grey studio jungle.
Remake with great production values, make-up and Helena Bonham Carter looking good as a monkey, but it lacks any form of originality or edge with a twist so obvious that it is impossible that the writers thought it was smart. Mark Wahlberg is also a boring lead and the cowardly ape is annoying. Tim Burton's worst? Possibly.
Domenica pomeriggio sul divano, palpebre pesanti in agguato, cosa ti vedi? Questo. Diochemerda! Ma Burton l'ha subappaltato e nel frattempo era in ritiro in Nepal? Cast da farti simpatizzare per i bracconieri di scimmie (e anche di uomini, un po')
