FILM REVIEW: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes goes forward time 10 years since the outbreak of a deadly virus wiped out most of the human race. A few survivors are left and war breaks out again between man and ape.

Rating M

Imagine a nearly decimated world 10 years after the outbreak of a deadly virus, where apes live peacefully and human survivors are hard to find. All is tranquil until a war between the apes  and humans ensues. This classic story will move you to tears, as you watch Brit Andy Serkis play the first non-human hero of a blockbuster film. The incredible acting is backed up by likeable Jason Clarke and Keri Russell,  as well as Toby Kebbell who plays scheming ape Koba.

Stars: 4/5
