Beneath the Conquest of the Fall of the Rise of the Planet of Apes

I had high hopes for this film, but unfortunately it makes less sense than the original 1970s version (the one with time travel and atomic bomb worshipping mutants). The CGI work on the main character Caesar, as played by Andy Serkis of Gollum fame, is fantastic in close up but it all seems to go to pot when the apes start bouncing around the trees like Spiderman for no readily apparent reason. The acting and plotting is rubbish too - the villainous English (naturally) CEO of the evil genetic research lab is particularly bad, dammit!
