Mark Wahlberg fights a chimp in ‘Planet of the Apes’
Astronaut Mark Wahlberg (right, being strangled) mixes it up with chimp warrior General Thade (played by Tim Roth) in the 2001 sci-fi film Planet of the Apes. The film, directed by Tim Burton, was a boxoffice success. But honestly, what's the point when it's impossible to improve on the original Planet of the Apes from 1968, starring Charlton Heston? Moral: Better ape costumes do not a better ape movie make.
