Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Customer Reviews

Much better movie than I was expecting.
Spike
The apes are very real characters, every bit as much as the humans.

Great movie, wonderful special effects and very good performances.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the follow-up to 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes and truly Dawn of the Planet of the Apesputs the mesmerizingly talented Andy Serkis in the spotlight that he truly deserves. Serkis reprises his motion-capture role as Caesar, leader of the now highly evolved population of apes. Ten years have passed since the battle of San Francisco. The H5N1 virus, nicknamed the Simian Flu, has killed off most of humanity except for a miniscule group of people immune to the virus. The apes have migrated to the forests and have evolved to such a degree that they have built a civilization that has allowed them to develop an entire culture. Oddly the fantastic score by Michael Giacchino during an early scene where the apes demonstrate a highly advanced hunting technique is reminiscent of the score from 2001 A Space Odyssey that accompanies that film’s apes making an important evolutionary step.

It is this kind of subtext that makes the film so impressive. As the surviving humans realize they are running out of fuel, they conclude that their only hope is repairing a power-generating dam that is smack in the middle of the apes’ new civilization. Fear and paranoia mount on both sides as a stage is set worthy of Shakespeare, Serkis’s character being named Caesar clearly being intentional. Caesar’s memory of compassionate humans causes him to hesitantly permit a group of humans lead by Ellie (Keri Russel) and Malcolm (Jason Clarke) to repair the dam.

This is one of 2014's best movies so far. The story is original and creative, bringing more potential to characters from the first film. Every ape in the movie looks astoundingly real, with no flaws. Acting is solid, but some characters seem to be a bit flat. The music is not used throughout the movie as much as others, but brings great aid to some very emotional scenes. I enjoyed the movie thoroughly from start to end, and there weren't any painfully slow or dull moments. As for the rating, this movie is very violent, and contains one f bomb. If you liked the first film, you'll probably enjoy this one even more. One of my new favorites.

Let me just say that this movie is over 2 hours long and I saw it on a 90-degree day where the air conditioner in the movie theater broke. I was sweating, other people were sweating, the theater was starting to smell like a locker room, yet I still stayed for the entire movie. Why? Because it was awesome.

This movie picks up about 10 years after the events of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. If you're like me, for the first few minutes you'll wonder if you've mistakenly wandered into the bargain movie theater and you're watching Contagion because the movie starts with all of these news clips reporting details about a massive quarantine and all these deaths due to something like the swine flu. Don't worry - it's the right movie. Basically, the human population is getting wiped out from disease that was spread by the apes that were getting tested on in the first movie. The movie finally starts about 10 years later and Caesar is wondering if there are any humans left, because they haven't seen any sign of them in 2 years. Proving Caesar has incredible timing, his question is answered when his son and another ape run into a group of hikers in the wood.. Long story short - they're trying to get to some giant dam or something to set up a power source for this group of humans that have survived. They need the power for survival, and also to communicate with the rest of the world to see who else has survived the epidemic. The problem: the apes don't trust humans and humans don't trust the apes.

The rest of the movie is pretty much apes and humans tiptoeing around each other because they don't trust the other after the events of the first movie, both parties getting along to the point of not wanting to start a huge war, until Koba goes and starts trouble.

Format: DVD
Picking up "six winters" after RISE, DAWN offers us a post-apocalyptic world where only pockets of humans survive - and, of course, other lifeforms, including talking, hyperintelligent apes with a serious bone to pick with humanity. With DAWN, there's a new director, a new star, and plenty of new ideas. It's a very different movie than RISE, but that's not a bad thing; overall, the movie largely makes up for its lack of the fun, humor, and satirical cleverness that helped make RISE so enjoyable by offering a more intelligent, nuanced and explorative film.

Right off the bat, we understand we're dealing with a darker world. It's not exactly clear what happened to humanity, although we know that "Simian Flu" played at least some part in the near-apocalypse. With only pockets of surviving humans, and an expanding, bitter ape population, the tone of the movie is set: this is a darker APES, and the stakes are higher. Whereas RISE dealt with the perils and promises of science in advancing human dominance (and ultimately, perhaps, in stopping it), DAWN takes on heavier, harsher themes of war, territorial aggression, paranoia, oppression, torture, and revolution. Naturally, it's not as fun of a ride as RISE, but for good reason.

This movie handles its more earnest tone quite respectably. To the extent that we treat Caesar and his apes as humans or commentaries on humanity, we find parallels with their struggle in the plight of the American Indian, the slave, the tortured detainee, and, basically, any oppressed, subjugated, or otherwise disrespected group. Intriguingly, we also see the apes becoming exactly what they had escaped from and fought against in the first place. It's an old story, but it's done well here.

Are there no longer Blu-Ray/DVD combo packs?
There are still combo packs. It just depends on the studio. I recently learned that some studios are now releasing the blu ray and dvd movies separately. I don't know all of the studios that are doing this.

Talking Apes...
From what I recall: Koba, Caesar's treacherous second in command is the only other ape that speaks.

where can i redeem the digital copy that comes with the Blu-Ray?
The site that's listed on the voucher you get with the movie will usually let you redeem it on Vudu. I usually just go on Vudu and enter my codes there, no problem.

Blu-ray + DVD? + Digital HD
Fox is one of several studios that have been phasing out Blu-Ray/DVD combo packs. Granted, this release has not yet been formally announced by the studio, so anything's possible, but I imagine the listing is accurate.
