Review Rick Baker's makeup is superlative, improving upon the original without obliterating its memory. No one will for a moment think of the actors as people in monkey suits, even though that's what the apes are. Mark Wahlberg gets the easy job, and he has no trouble acting equal parts stoic and heroic. Likewise, Estella Warren wears less, not more, and does an adequate job appearing beautiful and wild...Perhaps the film's finest moment occurs early in the proceedings, right after Leo has been captured by the apes. In a wink-and-a-nod reference to the original, as he grasps an ape by the leg, he is kicked away with the following rebuke: "Get your stinking hands off me, you damn dirty human!" If the entire movie had remained on the lofty level occupied by its first act, and avoided the out-of-control spiral characterizing its climax and conclusion, this version of Planet of the Apes could have bettered its predecessor. As it is, however, Burton's film is one more disappointment in a summer of lackluster "event pictures."

Review Tim Burton's "Planet of the Apes" wants to be all things to all men, and all apes. It's an action picture and a satire of an action picture. It's a comedy and then it gets serious. It's a social satire and then backs away from pushing that angle too far. It even has a weird intra-species romantic triangle in it. And it has a surprise ending that I loved...The movie could have been more. It could have been a parable of men and animals, as daring as "Animal Farm." It could have dealt in social commentary with a sting, and satire that hurt. It could have supported, or attacked, the animal rights movement...It could have, but it doesn't. It's a cautious movie, earning every letter and numeral of its PG-13 rating. Intellectually, it's science fiction for junior high school boys...The movie is great-looking. Rick Baker's makeup is convincing even in the extreme closeups, and his apes sparkle with personality and presence. The sets and locations give us a proper sense of alien awe, and there's one neat long shot of the ape city-mountain that looks, when you squint a little, like Xanadu from "Citizen Kane."

Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle Under Tim Burton's hand, this sci-fi warhorse has evolved into something splendid!
Desson Howe, The Washington Post ...a spectacle, a chest-thumping Batman that uses Danny Elfman music, Burtonesque decor and great makeup effects...
Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper Not just worthy of comparison to the's better.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times has a surprise ending that I loved.
