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.

The biggest positive of the film is the special effects on display, particularly those used for the films main character, the ape Caesar who is magnificently crafted as a result of a motion capture performance from the ever brilliant Andy Serkis and the work of the CGI team.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes 8/18/11
A complete and utter success. One of the most pleasantly surprising films I've seen in quite a while. For me personally it's the film of the summer, and one of the films of the year so far.
