This prequel to the classic 1968 sci-fi stars James Franco as a genetic scientist whose Alzheimer’s drug gives primates dangerous brain power. The script is wooden and the human actors look exhausted as they go through the motions, but the CGI simians are well worth watching. Lord of the Rings alum Andy Serkis—who gave Gollum his chilling realism—easily makes Caesar, the alpha-ape, the best actor in the movie.
