Things get very hairy for mankind in this cleverly conceived prequel to the classic future-shock series, revealing how the world became the domain of super-intelligent, non-human primates. James Franco is the well-meaning scientist whose Alzheimer's research leads to the birth of a simian genius. But corporate greed and human cruelty stir the ultra-smart chimp (a motion-captured Andy Serkis) into masterminding a furious shake-up at the top of the evolutionary tree. Lovers of breakneck action, cutting-edge effects and cautionary science fiction should be desperate to get their stinking paws on it.
