DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
Remakes, Re-Boots, A Lack of Imagination--But The Money Keeps Rolling In!...Mother/Daughter Memoirs...The Last Words of Elaine Stritch---Exactly What You'd Expect!
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. The political and family drama is intensely engaging and the action-packed climax is the most fun half hour you'll spend at the movies this summer.

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. But unfortunately, there were so many missed opportunities in Dawn that I left feeling disappointed.
