Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the sequel to the 2011 movie Rise of the Planet of the Apes. This is on a much bigger scale. A production of focused storytelling and the most realistic motion capture effects i've seen. From start to finish, its so compelling to watch. The tone throughout the movie is to preserve life and keep peace. Its made clear as the movie progressed that the humans and apes are prepared to go any lengths to protect their own. Another great example of fearing what you don't know.
Awesome action scenes (Apes riding Horses with guns) and great acting are just a few things to awe at. The ape characters outshine the humans just as you would expect, they just compliment the story rather than to fit around it. The relationship between the two show more similarity if you take away looks. The message is that there is good and bad in every society. The arrogance of humans is transmitted in to the personalities of these apes since they are just as smart.
An outstanding piece of film-making.
