Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Today’s film was Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

I really enjoyed the first film and this is a continuation of that story, set 10 years later.

The pacing on this film was pretty similar to the last one. If you are one of the people that found that too slow, you will have a similar experience this time. If, like me, you would prefer to watch the apes doing ape-stuff, rather than than seeing them going ape-shit, then this will work for you. There are action scenes, but a lot of it is movie time is them just ionteracting with each other and humans. It feels very “real” to me…

PS. My mom recently saw the previous film on TV and asked how many chimps they used for the main character when they were filming… She figured it was like Lassie, where they used about 12 dogs, each trained for different scenes in the film… I had to explain it was CGI, which goes to show the quality of this stuff…
