  •  Times of India -Renuka Vyavahare Rating-8
The decade after humans were decimated due to a pandemic, the genetically evolved ape population continues to thrive. Led by the righteous Caesar (Andy Serkis), an ape raised by James Franco in the previous film, the talking species live peacefully in the forest.

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-7
A machine-gun wielding angry ape, charging on horseback, spraying bullets at his human adversaries...it's one of those images that'll likely stay with you long after you've watched 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes', the terrific sequel to 2011's James Franco-starring 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'.

“TELL me,” whispers one human to another in the film, “doesn’t the ape make your stomach crawl?” That question, my friend, is directed at you. Does it not? When the camera pans deep into the folds of Caesar’s skin to his eyes, when the film shows the apes swarming and milling,

  •  DNA -Andre Borges Rating-7
The first film in the new reboot, 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' set the bar pretty high, giving the new series a fresh look and an engaging back story. The next installment was supposed to build off of the high, and explore what happens next. And it does exactly that, and more.
