Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Having grown up during the Planet of the apes era in the early 70's and having endured Mark Wallberg in the modern version, this film was more than a pleasant surprise.
The special effects were exceptional, the casting and script were pretty much dead on and the film even gives a knod to the late Charleton Heston's performance from the very first film of 40yrs ago.
More than worth the popcorn and the parking and yes, the folks who don't realize they're not at home.
