Okay I am sorry. I know they are apes. I admit I did not think the first reboot of the series “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” in 2011 would be any good. But I was gladly mistaken. I was surprised how much I liked the movie. So far the buzz from friends and reviewers is that the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” released this weekend is a smash success! We are hearing statements like “Best Movie of the Year”.
I just got back from the seeing the film and let me tell you the buzz is all true. This film is amazing. All the acting performances are incredible, especially the motion capture performance by Andy Serkis as Caesar. The story was deep and meaningful; there is a special symmetry between the nature of the Apes and the Humans. My recommendation is to go see this film this weekend.
