Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Wait, why does Dawn come after Rise? Don’t you rise after the dawn? Whatever. Settle in for the thinking man’s summer blockbuster chock full of complicated characters, political maneuvering, family dynamics, and a monkey dual-wielding machine guns on horseback fighting a tank. OK that was kinda dumb, but who cares? It’s still awesome, right? Thrill as apes engage in guerrilla warfare against a society of way less interesting humans, like the pragmatic leader who spends most of his screen time talking into a bullhorn, "We are survivors!" "We've been through hell together!" this generic good guy, this assh*le, “I’m the assh*le." this... woman... and this... kid who... draws things. Yeah, let's get back to the apes. See Andy Serkis deliver an Oscar-worthy performance by capturing the graceful movements and emotions of Caesar and doing his best Christian Bale Batman impression "One day!" "Where's the trigger?!" "Move him!" while the cast and crew deliver an even MORE Oscar-worthy performance by not laughing at a tiny British man in a unitard pretending to be a monkey. Wow, when you take away the CGI, this looks f*cking ridiculous. So immerse yourself in a movie full of stunning visuals and great acting, that will have audiences everywhere ignoring its forgettable plot about fixing a dam "The city used to run off nuclear power, but that ran out years ago so we've been using diesel generators and gasifiers. But if we could just get this dam working…" Blah blah blah blah. And the super cliche death of the main villain, because once again: apes with guns on horseback equals AWESOME. Starring... MVP: Most Valuable Primate Little Caesar’s Abu Mojo JoJo Not Hairy Oldman Discount Charlton Heston Ape-ril O’neil and Damn Dirty Apes! Actually, they’re pretty clean, and civilized. And Damn Civilized Apes! Rise of the Dawn of the Start of the Planet of the Apes Origins The Beginning So, uh, how can I put this... where are all the monkey dicks?
