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
