I felt this film was weaker because it descended into the rather clichéd dad trying to connect with his son, 2nd in command wants to take over, they have a big bust up at the end. If the main protagonists were humans and not superbly rendered apes, I think some more might think the story a little predictable, almost like the Lion King.I love Christopher Nolan, He has simply changed the way superhuman,extraordinary thrillers are made. Now everyone is just following him. Most of the Directors are trying to show the dark and more realistic environment in the movies and MATT REEVES succeeded in it.Just watched this movie yesterday and expected a lot more. I honestly can’t understand why people rate it so high.Welcome to “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”, this summers so-called blockbuster. Every year there is at least one movie that undeservedly “takes off” like this. From the current IMDb rating you might believe this is a sure thing, the “must-see” film of the summer. Not so fast.
