Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is an exciting action thriller directed by Matt Reeves and written by Mark Bomback.
Andy Serkis is, once again, excellent as the alpha-ape Caesar and Jason Clarke makes a fine hero as the man who tries to make peace between the humans and the apes.
The Hawks versus Doves scenario echos much of what is going on in our Country, not to mention the World.
What is most remarkable about this film is the ape characters created by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver and the production team that has realized them. One never doubts their reality.
If you’re looking for intelligent excitement, this is a film for you.
I give Dawn of the Planet of the Apes a 4 out of 5.
