It's probably my least favourite of any apes film. It has some great qualities, (mostly) excellent make up and yeah, Tim Roth is giving it his all but it's derided by a dumb story, a forgettable lead and Burton's contempt oozes all over this in the form of camp.

I don't view it as an abomination or anything, a lot of cool stuff came from it in the form of merch and DVDs, so in a way I'm kind of grateful?
