Mini Review - Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (out Jul 10) held me right through to the action finale. It's a strong, thought-provoking action release (i.e. the opposite of the latest Transformers). You’d be hard pressed to find another film so far in 2014 that asks more of the special effects artists. Director Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) deserves a big wrap. Grade: A-.
