Dawn of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) Review!!

Dawn-of-the-Planet-of-the-Apes1Synopsis – 10 Years after a disease that spread around the globe, Apes who have survived the disease go head-to-head with a group of human survivors and a traitor who is hell bent on destroying humans and apes, triggering the unbalanced war for peace.

My Take – Loosely inspired by Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973), Dawn of the Planet of The Apes manages to be even better than Rise of the Planet of The Apes (2011) in lots of ways thanks to the great script with highly engaging and intense proceedings with great characters. The only negative factor which may work against for many people (not me!) is the slow development in the 1st hour leading up to epic 2nd hour.

Andy Serkis delivers one of his most satisfying performances to date. His dedication and his understanding of every thread and fiber of Caesars being are in every frame of this film. & of course the all-out, aggressive performance from Toby Kebbell as Koba. He breaks the barrier of something quite terrifying and strong. Unlike its prequel, the human characters except for Jason Clarke don’t have much to do, especially its a shame to see Gary Oldman being wasted.

Not only does it deliver that rare sequel explores its world and characters further, but it’s also richly told, beautifully and hauntingly portrayed and truly exciting and terrifying in equal measures making it one of the best film of 2014 so far.
