  Too much monkey business? No. Director Tim Burton's reinvention of the sci-fi novel by Pierre Boulle is at its satirical and technical best when concentrating on the depiction of a simian society and on a wealth of exceptional, vanity-free actors done up as apes. Too bad that the undertaking is hindered by the script's faulty internal logic and a gratuitous coda that defies what's gone before. In a plot paralleling the 1968 film based on the book, a lost astronaut (Mark Wahlberg) crash-lands on a world dominated by intelligent chimps, gorillas, etc. He falls in with a primitive underclass of humans, startles the apes with his smarts, is championed by a humanist chimp (a sympathetic turn by Helena Bonham Carter) and runs afoul of a cruel ape general (the astounding Tim Roth) who wants to keep humanity in its place. The ape make-up, the art direction and the mimicry of primate behavior are cool, but it's your basic "bargain matinee" in the end. Decor note: Sexy model Estella Warren plays a pouty human babe in a loincloth.
