Tim Burton's 'reimagining' of Pierre Boulle's classic sci-fi novel stars Mark Wahlberg as Leo, an astronaut who crash lands on a world where people have fallen behind on the evolutionary scale. Enslaved by fearsome chimpanzee general (Tim Roth), Leo joins the human rebellion and finds an ally in sympathetic simian doctor Ari (Helena Bonham Carter). Effectively saying "Damn you all to hell" to the naysayers, Burton delivers a triumph of make-up and effects and provides a different shock ending to the 1968 version.
