Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

The Planet of the Apes origins continues with the new movie set just moments where Rise of the Planet of the Apes left off and this new sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, continues the secret origins of one of Hollywood's cinematic masterpiece, very long long before the first Planet of the Apes movie. Since this is just the continuation of its origins, fans of the Apes franchise can dig deeper more on the simian uprising portrayed at the eyes of the ape named Caesar.

A decade has passed after Rise of Apes, when the human civilization has been heavily enslaved by highly-intellectual apes. Caesar (played by Andy Serkis) and his ape army are living quietly at the San Francisco woods until a ragtag group of human survivors, led by Malcolm (played by Jason Clarke), trying to restore the hydroelectric plant. With an unlikely encounter, the human Malcolm and the ape Caesar agreed to help each other but it remains complicated as the war between men and apes sparks fury.

This movie is nothing more of a shocking vision of what if apes became the alpha of the chain and while the movie continues to develop, viewers tend to hang in there until some of the questions are answered but mostly just for the heck of it. Despite having flaws, the movie is still one of the most ideal summer blockbusters to watch...if you really want to make it out alive when the film ends.

Even though you won't be able to make it out alive even after the movie ends because of so much stuff that can traumatize you in your whole life, Dawn of Apes still answers the questions that left untold from the entire Planet of the Apes franchise. It continues to tell its origins on even greater heights and overall, you would really guess what happens next after this.

My rating: 3.7 out of 5
