    Drawing inspiration from Battle For the Planet of the Apes, Dawn returns to the series' core exploration of sociopolitical issues. Picking up over 10 years after the apes escaped from San Francisco in the post-apocalyptical aftermath of the Simian Flue pandemic, Caesar's new ape society clashes with human survivors when they come looking to re-open a hydroelectrically power station. The CGI is incredible, as the apes look remarkably lifelike (more so than the last film), and the action scenes are extremely intense and exciting. The score by Michael Giacchino is also especially good, and helps to set the right tone. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes stays true to the spirit of the original series while delivering a compelling and bold new vision.moreless
