Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Review

Seems like theres nothing but sequels and continuations of films out recently. 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' is a sequel to the 2011 film 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes.' If you loved the first film you will love this one too.

The film shows the collapse of human civilisation due to a deadly virus and in order for the humans to regain their power source they must gain access and rebuild a hydroelectric dam in the forest which is home to the apes. The apes threaten the humans if they trespass again, there will be a war. The humans manage to convince the ape leader, Caesar from the previous film to give them a few days to rebuild the dam and they promise to leave them alone after. But tensions remain between humans and apes and it becomes a battle to keep the peace.

I honestly enjoyed this film. I did begin to wonder at the start that it wasn't going to be any good but it was definitely worth a watch. It is very emotional and actually cried a lot. Watching it you won't know what side you're routing for, each side is just looking after and protecting their families. It really shows the meaning of a home and really makes you appreciate your family and home. Graphic wise it's done amazingly but that's what you'd expect these days anyway. The apes felt so real, alive and full of emotion, almost even better than the actors. The plot, characters and emotions in the film all were great and there's nothing bad for me to say about the film at all. The ending leaves the franchise with a lot they can do with it and I can't wait to see what else they do with it.

Did anyone else enjoy this film?
