Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is an incredible thriller like no other. It's much smaller in scale than its predecessor, but that only allows for it to tell a more intimate story.

I was thrilled to watch Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the latest chapter of a true rarity -- a big-budget summer franchise imbued not only with cutting-edge visual effects, but with a tremendous amount of soul and thought.
