    Dawn is dynamite entertainment, especially in the rousing first hour. show more

    If you see the movie, notice how the ending is no ending, and the fact that it even feels like one is entirely a function of Michael Giacchino's musical score. show more

    It's a provocative sci-fi action film with dynamite special effects, a powerful humanistic theme with echoes of real-life social conflicts, and a truly wondrous performance by Serkis. show more

    Compared the duds that have come out lately it wasn't bad, and it wasn't that good either. Just remember, guns don't kill apes, apes kill apes.

    No good. Long movie that barely goes anywhere. A waste of time and money.

    Blah blah blah movie. Cut me a break a bunch of Monkeys in dramatic roles. Long movie with some redeeming qualities, but I forget what they are. I did not like this movie. Wait for DVD to come out so you will only be complaining that you wasted a dollar on this thing along with having a chance to fast forward or just turn it off once you realize it is going nowhere.
