Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes – A Review

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes – A Review

“Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes”, with its lengthy title, soars at the box office, and in our imagination.

The latest reboot to the long running franchise delivers in surprising ways.

Intelligence goes beyond the smart apes, with realistic dialogue and agreeable directions to the plot.

Characters may not always make wise decisions, but the consequences are believable.

Directed by Matt Reeves, the story takes place about ten years after the events of the previous film. The surviving humans. amidst an apocalypse, struggle to regain control of their world. The apes from the first film, along with their children, stand in humanity’s way.

Contrary to the marketing, war is furthest from wise ape leader Caesar’s mind. He is not warm to humans, but he wants no bloodshed among his family.

Andy Serkis portrays the ape leader convincingly. His costars playing humans do a superb job displaying a wide range of emotions when necessary.

Special effects range from good to excellent. On the big screen, it it sometimes clear that the apes are computer animated. But it never detracts, nor pulls the viewer out of the story.

The film opened in American theaters July 11th, and is rated PG-13.

Have you seen the movie? Any of the others in the franchise perhaps?
