Loosely based on the manmade experiments to send chimpanzees to
space, Space Chimps is the latest computer animated film from
Roadshow which is directed by De Micco and is about a group of
"chimps" who are once again sent into deep space.
The story behind Space Chimps involves an alien orb that was sent by
man into a wormhole and ends up on the other side of the galaxy
where a tyrant named voiced by Jeff Daniels gets his clutches on
this strange device and wishes to investigate its origin.
Assembling a simian team that include Patrick Warburton as the
commander of the team, scientist Luna (Cheryl Hines) and a loose
canon named Ham III (Andy Samberg) whose father was a circus chimp,
however his grandfather was part of the space program.
All three are thrown into the unknown in this entertaining movie
which contains action, drama, adventure, romance and of course
comedy. The best part of Space Chimps is the witty script by Kirk De
Micco and Robert Moreland who really put quite an effort into the
story and the great one-liners which target a variety of ages.
course, besides the entertaining story, the star of the movie are
the CGI which simply look phenomenal with exceptional video and
audio quality. It's definitely a great cinematic experience and
unfortunately Space Chimps wasn't the box office success that the
creators were counting on. Needless to say, this is one movie that
kids of just about all ages will thoroughly enjoy!
