Dawn is dynamite entertainment, especially in the rousing first hour. show more
The film forges ahead, in vivid 3-D, with such energy, expertise and thunderous conviction that you readily accept its basic premise — the pell-mell emergence of great intelligence, plus moral awareness, in primitive bodies — and find yourself exactly where the filmmakers want you to be, swinging giddily between sympathy for the apes and the humans in what threatens to become all-out war. show more

This is a great movie. better than the first!
great movie! great action, never boring. This has been by far the best one made. enjoyed every moment!!!
My husband and I loved this film, not one MOMENT of boringness in it (I think some of the other reviewers were in the wrong movie). The special effects were very good, and I was especially impressed by the realistic expressions on the apes' faces!
