There are errors, and there are major big time catastrophes.

I made a major catastrophe by waiting this long to see this movie. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, is not a movie to overlook at any point in time.
This new set of movie series are meant to be a prelude to the original movie series and this itself is the eight theatrical film in the franchise and so far, it is the best.

The movie received critical acclaim upon its release and was also a box office hit, but the thrill in the movie is the story.

The Apes from the first part Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011), have gathered to form a colony and have grown in numbers. Training their children in the sign language and words they learned from their human captors. Caeser still stands as their leader, but the movie is set 10 years after the first, so Caeser now has a family with two sons.

Living undisturbed in the woods because in the human world the panic caused by the deadly ALZ-113 virus has caused many of the human race to self-destruct. Many of them now live in colonies formed across the world, some unaware of the existence of others.

This depth in the story will make you sit and wonder what the movie will bring and the movie intro scenes features the Apes living together as a colony, hunting and conversing. You will think such will make you doze off, but think again and be expectant of the surprise that beckons.

The acting in the area of the apes and the visual effects were in a class of their own. Then the humans in the movie were all acting at top form. Their story started when they ventured into the woods, met with Caeser’s family and were given passage to go work on a dam to give them electricity.

This action among others caused distrust in Caeser’s leadership and led to a battle between the Apes and the human colony. The cause of which resulted in deaths on both side and is pregnant with an upcoming outbreak of war, which I believe the third film will explore.

There were cast changes made in the movie as the movie is set 10 years ahead and showcases a world of pandemonium it was easy to write off, the old cast.

This is a movie where you buy the DVDs/Blu Rays for keeps for future reviews. Don’t be like me waiting eternity to see a classic, go see it now.
