Monkey Poo
19 July 2017 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I've walked out of movies before, but never have I walked deeper and deeper into total disdain for over 2 excruciating hours. Completely convoluted and nearly nonsensical plot, wrapped in a farcical attempt to be profound, while being utterly transparent in its attempt to copy some iconic movies and characters (Ape-ocalypse, really?!). This total monkey poo is actually what will wipe out our species by making us all stupider with every passing minute we watch it. Life is too short, go do something more worthwhile, like watching paint dry. That said, had some moments of real emotion coupled with top-notch CGI. And, it totally succeeds in making critics look like total morons.
