What I think makes the film work really well is the fact that instead of being about the humans, this film is more about the apes, Caesar in particular.
The Rodent
Its actually that good you find yourself on the side of the Apes rather than the humans and gives the viewer a completely different depth and outlook to the Apes' Franchise Legacy.
Other ape characters are also given enough development to distance them from the fairly one-dimensional human characters - enough so that I definitely want to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes just to see what they're up to next.
