Our Dawn of the Planet of the Apes review lauded the Matt Reeves-directed action film because it had so much heart. Much of that power came from the dialogue that told a story that isn't so black and white.
Audiences adored the film as well, making it the top movie at the nation’s box offices with $73 million in ticket sales.
The story picked up 10 years after Rise of the Planet of the Apes and found a world where few humans had survived the so-called Simian Flu.
Those that did survive found themselves in a conclave in San Francisco, led by Gary Oldman -- no fan of those, to use an original Planet of the Apes quote, “damn dirty apes.”
Watch Rise of the Planet of the Apes online to see how this whole thing got started, and then be sure to check out our Dawn of the Planet of the Apes quotes to see where we’re at and if you haven’t seen the Oldman-starring sequel, run, don’t walk to the local theater and check out one of the year’s best films.
