Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 
"Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" by Yojimbo
3/4 stars

The last vestiges of the human race form an uneasy truce with Caesar and his community until fear and suspicion on both sides results in all out interspecies war. Although Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes had some extremely impressive special effects that breathed life into the simian characters, it was the strong themes and human relationships at its core that made the film something special. Once again thanks to some superb CGI work and Andy Serkis' specialist talents, Caesar makes a very strong protagonist and the relationships between the characters work quite well, but this sequel is more a straight post apocalyptic action thriller than the more thought provoking previous film. It's all very impressively done, with visually pleasing action sequences set within a beautifully realised post-technological landscape like an ape-based version of Mad Max or The Walking Dead, but I was personally hoping for a more cerebral story in a similar vein to the original. As it stands though, Dawn is a good, solid action sci-fi and there's certainly nothing wrong with that.
