Movie review: 'Chimpanzee'

“Chimpanzee” engages both hearts and minds
Oklahoman Published: April 20, 2012

The youth-friendly plotline involves Oscar's primal need to find his own place in the hierarchy, while the group battles villainous antagonist Scar and his pack. Purists may object to covering animal tales with cheesy sentimentality, but there's nothing wrong with capturing your viewers' hearts en route to their heads.

At one touching turn, I heard a small voice in the row behind me stoutly declare, “I am not crying.” Job well done.

— Colin Covert, Star Tribune (Minneapolis)
