Aro Favourite Dawn of the Planet of the Apes


USA 2014, 130 minutes
Dir. Matt Reeves
Rating: [M] Violence & offensive language
Genres: Science Fiction / Animal Amok


“This vivid, violent extension of humanoid ape Caesar's troubled quest for independence bests its predecessor in nearly every technical and conceptual department.”~Variety

Aroview: This exciting sequel to the prequel in the PLANET OF THE APES franchise concerns the conflict between a growing nation of genetically evolved apes and a dwindling race of human survivors.

Potent and efficient in depicting the complex permutations of tribal conflict, this film comes closest to the 1968 original in character and dramatic tension, and perhaps exceeds it in its allegorical reflection of the time it was made.
