Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Review | Geekenstein

"This entire Planet of the Apes reboot should be a blueprint in the future for studios looking to take advantage of their own franchises, especially when compared to Tim Burton’s insanity from the decade prior. Both of these films add to and play off of the canon without either throwing all of it away (Star Trek), shoving it into an alternate history (Star Wars), or just recreating the first film over and over instead of expanding. This is the kind of blockbuster that isn’t made anymore, one with action, high drama, a great sense of humor, and enough trust in its audience to appreciate its themes without constant reminders. Dawn is a film that can mystify children and adults alike, and one that builds to and earns its upcoming sequel while still remaining entertaining in its own right." - Alex Santa Maria of Geekenstein
