CGM Reviews: Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Tim Burton’s atrocious remake of Planet Of The Apes should have killed off interest in the franchise of apocalyptic monkeying around over a decade ago. But then came Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, a rather brilliant franchise relaunch (and loose remake of the deeply underrated Conquest For The Planet Of The Apes)that dialed back to the origin of the ape evolution and a told a clever allegory about human nature and scientific animal abuse hinged on a wonderful motion capture performance by Andy Serkis. Now we have Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, a much bigger follow up as a result of the last movie’s unexpected global success, but thankfully not a dumber cash crab. This time the director is Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In) who loosely remakes the troubled Battle For The Planet Of The Apes into a tragic epic that is easily one of the wisest, most technically accomplished, and exciting movies to emerge this summer.
