Release date: July 11, 2014

Starring: Gary Oldman, Jason Clarke, Judy Greer, Andy Serkis

Directed by: Matt Reeves

Premise: A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.

i think it could have potential, if it's as close to Caesar as the first one. The way that one followed his gradual evolution into consciousness was really good. his eyes! the poster seems to confirm that they will.

I've been hyping Godzilla more than this but I thought thew first one was real solid.

Anyway:
- Effects are special.
- Gaz Oldman looks younger.
- I like how the lead dude is dressed. Seems practical, outdoorsy, survivorish and distinctly Australian.

One of the best movies I've seen in a while, not kidding. I even watched it in 3D and enjoyed that which is rare for me.

First of all, production is flawless and CGI is pretty amazing. I felt like it even makes Avatar look old. Lots of action and great scenes, but also very deep storytelling and drama. The film is definitely serious throughout and there isn't a lot of comedy, but I was hooked 100% of the way. Great story and continuation, setting up what comes next.

I think most people here will enjoy this a lot.

No love for the third one? I think the trilogy as a whole is the perfect trilogy as far as action blockbuster goes.

I loved DAWN. The third one was a well directed movie...but...everything felt forced or easy to predict.

I loved WAR. Definitely landed as best summer blockbuster this year, hands down. Will likely make my top ten of the year list.
