This movie has one of the best opening sequences I have ever seen, it was epic. Dawn of The Planet of The Apes is the sequel to “Rise of The Planet of The Apes”, I just got tired writing “of the” again and again. This movie stars Andy Serkis as Caesar, an intelligent leader of slightly less intelligent Apes. Jason Clarke and Gary Oldman as leaders of the surviving humans. Oldman’s character was just disposable for me in this movie.
This movie takes place 10 years after the last one, Millions of Human are dead if not a few billion. Apes
are flourishing and humans are languishing. Cesar is the Leader of Apes and an effective leader, who has earned respect. Caesar has a son in the movie and like any other leader, he is having trouble leading his own son. Andy Serkis did an amazing job as he always does, CGI
of this movie is perfect, it looks better than the last.
Dawn of The Planet of The Apes
is the least bit predictable, it never fails to surprise. They acknowledge the events of the previous film in a way which I just didn’t see coming. This movie has well-realized characters which are its strength as you care for them, you will care more of Caesar than any other human in the movie, that’s for sure. Caesar is at the center of the movie as he should be, it’s called Planet of The Apes for a reason.
I just didn’t care much about most of the Humans. Jason Clarke did an amazing job, he seemed to fit in the world of this movie very well. This movie has some amazing action sequences as well, which was just beautifully shot. This movie certain times got me confused if Apes are animals or not, on certain occasions it felt like they are just Caveman, which just hit me when Humans and Apes were standing face to face.
IT IS CERTAINLY ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES I HAVE SEEN THIS YEAR. IT’S WORTH WATCHING, IT WILL KEEP YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT FROM START TO FINISH.
