Rise of the planet of the Apes has been, in my opinion, the best movie of the summer. If you are a really big animal lover, you might not want to see this because the humans treat the apes badly throughout the movie. The humans shoot at, spray with hoses and, try to shock the apes. In return, the apes spray the humans, throw spears at them, and throw them off bridges. James Franco and Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire,) both do an incredible acting job in this movie. There is some language, (the famous line from the first movie,) and when it comes to role models, the apes are better role models than the humans. But there are some positive messages in this movie, and language is mild for a PG-13, but there are some violent scenes. All and all, anyone 12 and older should be able to handle it.
