The “Rise” of Social Construction in the Rise of the Planet of the Apes (A good flick)


Of recent memory “Rise of The Planet of The Apes” is a terrific film worthy of conversation. This film is a reminder for me of why I love cinema; One truly can learn a great deal of the history of the world through this film.

Change always shows its face in history after revolution or right before it. The implications of working together for change when living conditions are unfair and not tolerable are strongly pushed. ALL HUMANS need to see this film, it is intelligent, raises questions about awareness and brilliantly demonstrates the pros and cons of the humans quest for perfection.  Keep in mind a majority of the characters in this film, who are primates, do not speak, however their actions are louder than words. Symbolism from some of the greatest revolutions in the history of the world are found in this film. It is a commercial film worth every penny. If you don’t know the story of Moses or the great campaign for change lead by Malcolm X and Martin Luther King or are not familiar with other great historical movements that brought great change, you still can learn an awful lot from “Rise of The Planet of The Apes”.
