Hartlaub says:

“The most enduring performance of the year was Andy Serkis in “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”: I’m going to take a (possibly deserved) beating for this, but I think Serkis’ work in “Apes” (he was also Gollum in “Lord of the Rings” and King Kong in Peter Jackson’s “King Kong”) will be looked at in 50 years not unlike we look at Charlie Chaplin now. His motion capture work is pioneering, and “Apes” was his best performance to date.”
