Excerpt: La secuela de la fenomenal película de 2011 parece confirmar que la reactivada saga de los simios va camino de convertirse en un pilar fundamental de la ciencia-ficción moderna. Argumentalmente es menos interesante, pero no deja de ser una fantástica propuesta.
Excerpt: The new ‘Apes’ films manage to accomplish what few reboots have: to tell an origin story that honors the original work and pleases the superfans, while working as involving, compelling cinema, on their own terms and free of all other associations.
Excerpt: With digital effects that blur the lines of reality as much as this film does, I’m further excited to see what they do with the next sequel. After all, there’ll be no existing film to draw from this time, so I’m curious to see where the overall story goes.
Excerpt: Set 10 years after the simians escaped captivity, ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ is an epic account of how a fragile peace between the apes and humans is revoked due to the fear and defiance of a few.
Excerpt: A rising society of primates struggles against not only the last remnants of mankind, but also disorder within their own ranks in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, a continuation and expansion of the franchise mythos that ranks among the series’ best films.
Excerpt: Andy Serkis gets top billing in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and not without good reason. It’s possible that without his performance the movie might have been just another forgettable, big-budget Hollywood special effects prequel, but he makes the movie come alive in a way that from now on, he should no longer be dismissed as just “that CG guy.”
