More Info:
  • Joe Morgenstern

    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.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is awe-inspiring.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Yet for all of the technological genius at work here, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes maintains a remarkably human core, even under digital makeup.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes manages to do at least three things exceptionally well that are hard enough to pull off individually: Maintain a simmering level of tension without let-up for two hours, seriously improve on a very good first entry in a franchise and produce a powerful humanistic statement using a significantly simian cast of characters.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    "Dawn" is not just a good genre movie or a good summer movie. It's a great science-fiction film, full-stop, and one of the year's very best movies so far.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Guy Lodge

    An altogether smashing sequel to 2011′s better-than-expected “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” this vivid, violent extension of humanoid ape Caesar’s troubled quest for independence bests its predecessor in nearly every technical and conceptual department.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Director Matt Reeves, working from a script by Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Mark Bomback, elevates the apes to primary importance in this intelligent thriller.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    In truth, the deeply absorbing and thematically rich ‘Apes’ sequel is more akin to a drama than an action film, but it's one that still satisfies the desires and demands of big, blockbuster filmmaking.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    “Dawn” is more than a bunch of occasionally thrilling action sequences, emotional gut punches and throwaway jokes arranged in predictable sequence. It is technically impressive and viscerally exciting, for sure, but it also gives you a lot to think, and even to care, about.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Serkis’ Caesar gets more than his fair share of rip-snortin’ badass moments. He’s arguably the finest leader of men we’ve seen on screen since “Lincoln.” Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    Loud, smart and ferociously committed to its premise, and it leaves an intriguingly bitter aftertaste. Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This installment inches events closer to a merge point with 1968's "Planet of the Apes" while maintaining its own unique identity. It is in every way superior to "Rise of the Planet of the Apes."

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Dave McGinn

    Good news – it’s incredible. It sets the standard for blockbuster action movies, and manages to be even better than its predecessor.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    This is an “Apes” for the ages.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    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.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    For two hours of breathless drama, you forget you’re watching actors grunting like chimps and hope two rival civilizations can work together.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    What’s striking about this new film is that it lays out the message-mongering in such a way that you can enjoy the movie equally well on a purely action level.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    It speaks to the masses with some treats for the discerning types in the back.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    A sequel that easily tops its 2011 predecessor.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Daniel Green

    A satisfying balance of family drama, political intrigue and all-out action (an ape cavalry charge has to be seen to be believed) do, in truth, only constitute half of the story, as Reeves' sci-fi sequel is as much a technical triumph as a narrative one.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Ian Nathan

    A superbly mounted, powerfully performed, if slightly underfed Apes sequel. That Reeves is set to direct Untitled Of The Planet Of The Apes next is cause for much celebration. This guy’s fur real. No pun intended.

    Empire Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Even given the spate of post-apocalyptic and dystopian films that rule the multiplexes, this is the bleakest “franchise” in human history, and I’m curious if there will be any balm whatsoever in the next close encounter of the furred kind.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Makes for riveting viewing. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is among the more brisk 2 hours and 10 minutes I've spent in a theater in some time -- and it's easily the most rewarding of this year's summer tentpole films.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Yet for all the heady ideas at play, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes remains a visceral film, one of movement, action, unexpected developments, and disarming poignance.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Eschewing a tidy wrap-up, Reeves doesn't leave us feeling manipulated, as so often happens in films like this. Instead, we want to know where the story goes from here, and that's no small accomplishment.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a much better and far less silly movie than its predecessor.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Richard Jordan

    Not quite the intimate parable of the first movie nor a balls-to-the-wall battlefield extravaganza, Dawn is pitched somewhere in the middle, with much of its two hour-plus running time powered by the simmering, expertly sustained tension both between and within the two species.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Steve Rose

    Just as 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes surpassed expectations, so this sequel delivers on its promise and leaves us wanting more – which we'll almost certainly get.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    It may lack its predecessor’s lofty ambitions, but once the bullets, spears and hairy fists start flying you’ll be too wrapped up to care.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    There's evident patience and intelligence to the filmmaking all over, as well as an engagement with genuine ideas about diplomacy, deterrence, law and leadership. However often it risks monkey-mad silliness, it's impressively un-stupid.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The narrative and its attendant lessons about how one rotten ape and/or human can spoil the bunch are engaging, although I found myself drifting during the battle sequences.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jeff Baker

    The apes and the special effects team are the real stars of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Visually, this movie is big, bold, often awe-inspiring.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    In one of the most wickedly funny scenes in sci-fi history, Koba uses monkeyshines to bamboozle some gun-toting yahoos and scuttle the peace treaty.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Whatever audiences think of it, I'd say the latest "Apes" picture is just that: a solid success, sharing many of its predecessor's swift, exciting storytelling and motion-capture technology virtues.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes works both as allegory and action-adventure film. The internecine conflict between apes mirrors the troubled history of our own race.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

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

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    An action-packed epic, a moving sci-fi allegory rendered in broad, lush strokes by the latest state of the computer animator’s art.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Steve Macfarlane

    This is a summer blockbuster contingent on grand bargains, tactical retreats, and a ferocious, inevitable shock-and-awe campaign.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    What is missing from the film is wit—the deep wit that comes from playing off species and environments against each other.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    When it gets going, it’s a pretty fine movie.

    Time Full Review
  • Kenneth Turan

    "Dawn's" vision of masses of intelligent apes swarming the screen as masters of all they survey is even more impressive than it was the last time around and reason enough to see the film all by itself.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Yet for all the heart and soul the actor pours into his role, watching Dawn still feels a bit like seeing massive, expensive wheels spin in place.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    At a certain point in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, you expect Caesar to say, "Et tu, Koba?" Maybe a bit obvious, but it would have shown some wit.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    For its few visual and many script flaws, however, director Matt Reeves (“Cloverfield,” “Let Me In”) balances the splashy set pieces with quieter moments (sullen teen Kodi Smit-McPhee gives a copy of Charles Burns’ “Black Hole” to a wise orangutan named after Maurice Evans!) in such a way that “Dawn” never feels dull or draggy.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    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.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Watching an army of apes riding horses heading into battle is undeniably cool, but that’s the only thing the movie gives you: Neat eye candy. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is written at a level so low, even 8- year-olds will find it lacking.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Any film that begins with one of those fake-news montages, where snippets of genuine CNN footage are stitched together to concoct a feeling of semi-urgency around its hackneyed apocalypse, already sucks even before it gets started. Full Review
