Even up against the superlative visual effects, what is arguably the most impressive aspect of Dawn is just how much depth they are able to give the character of the apes and how distinctive they are able to make them from each other; after a while you forget that you are watching apes as opposed to humans, never mind that you're watching computer generated apes.

When a small group of Men appear on the borders of the Apes home and kill one of the Apes, Caesar and the others are shocked and confused even more so though, the Humans are taken aback by how intelligent and organised the Apes are, and the fact they can also tal.

After Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a film that despite its flaws focussed steadily on the interactions between humans and apes, and slowly built up to an action set piece finale, I feared that the follow up may have sacrificed certain elements that made it work and opt for a two hour action filled war epic between apes and humans.
