The book that Alexander (Kodi Smit-McPhee) shares with Maurice is Black Hole by Charles Burns. The story is about a sexually transmitted disease among American teenagers that turns them into outcasts. The book had a number of similarities to the Apes narrative, namely the theme of outcasts living in the woods, segregated from everyone else. See more »
How did Malcolm know to call Caesar by name? Nowhere in the run up to the scene where Malcolm first speaks Caesar's name (at the confrontation by the dam) was Caesar's name spoken in the presence of the humans. See more »

This film is not just the best film of the summer, it's probably so far the best movie of the year!
These are the exact reasons why this film is great:
1.Amazing visual effects
3.Awesome action (Apes on horses, apes with shotguns)
5.Andy Serkis is probably the best motion capture actor ever.
Overall the movie was just spectacular. My advice: don't expect anything when you go into this film. It is without a doubt the best entry in the planet of the apes franchise. Another thing about the special effects in the film, in Rise of the Planet of The Apes although that film had great special effects, there were some parts that you could tell were CGI while in Dawn, you couldn't tell if it was motion capture or CGI puppets. You literally feel like you are looking at apes. Anyways, the story is great, it had some awesome action, this film didn't disappoint me at all.
So I will say that Dawn of The Planet of the Apes gets: 10/10 stars
