Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, 2014

YYYEEEESSSSSS!!!

Honestly, that’s all I really need to write to review the second installment in the Planet of the Apes prequels.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was the perfect summer blockbuster and C and I loved it! It was beautifully shot, acted, and animated. I was stunned that in an action packed movie, I walked away being absolutely in love with the characters. There is a scene where Malcom’s son, Alexander, is reading to Maurice (the orangutan, and my favorite). Touching and beautiful.

How is it that a movie about the dawn of dystopia, and really, apes taking over the planet, be something that moves me so deeply?

Although a little violent (not graphically, just incessantly during a couple of scenes), this was an outstanding summer movie. Highly recommended.

K and C’s rating of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: 9/10 mangoes
