The movie was entertaining, but the worst part was that almost none of the other people in the packed theatre had seen the original. It was sad that both quotes from the original Planet of the Apes quotes were only recognized by my friend and myself, who started busting up. Come on! Charlton Heston quoting himself? How great is that? I just wish the people there had studied up before "dumbening" the average of the audience.
Everyone: go rent the original movie (ignore beneath and return to) before watching the recreation.
and just a warning; there are a few gaping plot holes that hopefully anyone who watches will notice...but it was entertaining.
