It is funny how often you can be suckered into watching a film in which you know is going to give you the most amazing premise but somehow has less chance of delivering upon the promise of good times and stomach aching laughter than a President being so well adored that the American voters would allow them any indiscretion going. They wouldn’t even clamour for their impeachment if they were caught in bed playing an out of tune flute whilst whispering sweet nothings to the Russian Ambassador as they talked of handing back Sarah Palin and the state of Alaska back to Moscow.

There is perhaps no place more remote in the U.K. than the Shetland Isles, the bleakness of the landscape betraying the cold that sits just below the surface of an island race who are closer perhaps in spirit to their old Nordic heritage than that of Scotland who has been their de facto Government since the 16th Century.

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes. Film Review.

Originally published by L.S. Media. September 1st 2011.

Cast: James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Andy Serkis, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo,

 Rise of the Planet of the Planet of the Apes will surely go down as one of the finest films from the summer of 2011. It was certainly up against some good opposition from the Marvel comic- franchise with their surprisingly good Captain America and the last in the series of films involving everybody’s favourite teenage wizard, however with a story line that had fans of the original Charlton Heston movie salivating over their popcorn there can be only be only one true winner.
