Rise of the Planet of the Apes, 2011 - ★★★★

Three years later and the "special" has already faded from the effects. Not that it matters because all of the apes are filled with character and feel real even if they do look out of place (especially the younger Caesar) in the real world. The story is told economically which means everything flows along quickly so it remains enjoyable without questioning the flaws (are there really that many apes in the San Francisco area?).

The trailer for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is great and this prequel (not to mention Filmspotting describing Dawn as a Shakesperian action film) has only got me more excited for the new film.
