The darkness that was in the original Chuck Heston Planet of the Apes (1968) has been considerably explanded for this reboot of the series. Intelligent script and expensive special effects (primarily Andy Serkis in another of his trademark CGI roles) make this movie a version of primates becoming humanly-intelligent a story that works on multiple levels.
