Marky Mark and the Monkey Bunch

Despite its derivative plot and frustrating ending, the new Planet of the Apes is deliriously charming fun

Speaking of which, Burton's version also comes with its own "shocker" finale -- its own Statue of Liberty -- but it has all the impact of a grain of sand falling to earth. It feels only like a tossed-off, tacked-on ending, and it nearly betrays all of the goodwill the first 115 minutes engenders. It makes no sense within the continuity of the movie and smacks of a franchise finale; it's a conclusion in search of a sequel, and it escorts the audience out of the theater with a shrug instead of a shock. It's enough to drive anyone apeshit.
