Today I saw Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in the cinema and o my goodness was it good. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the sequel to Rise of the Planet of the Apes which this time follows Caesar around 10 years after the events in the first film and he has built a peaceful community of apes in the forest, which is disturbed when desperate humans (who have been almost wiped out by the Simian Flu) searching for electrical power stumble across them.
There are loads of positives to this film, which include: great and easy to follow story, great story development, fantastic twists and turns, brilliant acting, superb CGI in the motion capture and really good action. To expand, the story is really good and develops well also at the start you think that the movie is predictable however some things happen in the film that are unexpected and are just great twists; the acting from all of the cast is great I particularly like Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Toby Kebbell and of course Andy Serkis. The technology in this film is outstanding the apes look really realistic and the motion capture helps capture the emotion in the characters. There is also one small negative which is that I wasn't personally emotionally attached to the characters fully, which is a minor negative.
Overall I thought this film was very good and was much better than the first, which I still really enjoyed; so taking everything into consideration I rate this film:
