Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

The story starts a decade later from the first part, where most of the human population has been wiped out by the virus and the intelligent apes have survived and multiplied.

The treatment of the film is slow, with lingering scenes of drama. It has some moments that are charged with resonating sound and action. The basic plot is of winning trust, where both sides have members with differing motives. The result? A ‘part 2’ of the series that may not have carried its audience to look forward to part 3.

Brilliant sound and visuals, but not deeply engaging.
