Joe Williams in his review terms the film as faint. The name of the article review was “Unlike previous versions, latest ‘Planet of the Apes’ has heart”. Joe Williams says the discussion of the “Planet of Apes” brings about racism. He further suggested that the “ Rise of the Planet of the Apes” made those who were an inferior revolt against their masters

Mick views the film negative, and he even thinks that it will not last for many years. Mick believes that the movie is too predictable and that the viewer can always tell what will happen next. The thoughts of mike are nearly those of Joe Williams. According to the analysis of his thoughts, I think that LaSalle was utterly displeased with the movie and that could be the reasons why he had very negative comments regarding it.

Colin’s also thinks that the film takes the form of a prison since Caesar struggles to adjust of apes which were antagonistic (Covert). It is true that the selling point of this film is when the apes were rioting. It rings about all humor and all entertainment lies in this section. True to say all the action points in the movie were all planned for. The description in the review could have earned a five star since it well organized and it was completely in line with my thoughts regarding the
