Remake has intense peril, lots of violence and death.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Planet of the Apes is the 2001 Tim Burton'-directed remake of the 1968 sci-fi classic. There is intense and prolonged peril, a great deal of violence, and many deaths. Human characters are beaten, branded, and verbally and physically abused. They are also shown getting branded with a branding iron; an ape sympathetic to the plight of humans is later branded. There's a brief mild sexual situation in which a female ape is bouncing on top of a male ape in bed. The appearance and overall violent behavior of most of the apes could be scary to younger and more sensitive viewers.
