DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES ★★★★ Di­rected by Matt Reeves. Star­ring Andy Serkis, Ja­son Clarke, Gary Old­man, Keri Rus­sell

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - CINEMA -

The ter­rific se­quel to a fine pre­quel finds hu­mankind fac­ing erad­i­ca­tion while an ape com­mu­nity de­vel­ops in the forests round San Francisco. Serkis’s thought­ful chimp and Clarke’s peace­ful hu­man de­velop a re­la­tion­ship that is con­vinc­ingly touch­ing as the two species head in­ex­orably to­wards con­flict. The at­mos­phere is bril­liantly main­tained, the fram­ing se­quence is per­fect. More please. 12A cert, 130 min
