DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES
8.30PM, TDT ★★★★
Ten years have passed since the Simian Flu reduced mankind to a one-in-500 shadow of its former self. Meanwhile, courtesy of leader Caesar (Andy Serkis), the apes are evolving from strength to strength. The scripting is sharp and thematically ambitious for an action-driven production, and the performance-capture mastery of Serkis’ acting goes to a whole new level. A bigticket item for thrill-seekers and deep thinkers alike.
