Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

As Caesar and his army of super apes set up their forested encampment, both exterior threats from the surviving human populace and dissension within his own ranks threaten to destroy their civilization. I went into this Apes with the same low expectations as I went into its predecessor, and while they were far exceeded by that first reboot, here I feel I at least got my money's worth with the considerable visuals and engaging motion captured primates outweighing the silly human story, outlandish plot developments, and over the top acting.
