Movie Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Movie/TV reviews, Reviews

After “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”, people had very mixed opinions. Some felt that it was a nice, fresh take on a classic franchise, others thought it was dull and had too much of a focus on the human characters.

Although I enjoyed the movie, I admit that it has flaws. The film had too much of a focus on the human characters, and should have focused more on the ape characters. The film also tried way too hard to reference the originals. With that being said, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is undoubtedly the magnum opus of the “Planet of the Apes” series. Not only is this one of the best sci-fi movies in recent years, but this is also a film worthy of a Best Picture nomination at the Academy Awards.
