HOW WE GRADE IT:
I never thought I'd give an 'A' to a Planet of the Apes movie, but this one is exceptional. Great acting, story, action, effects and scenery. It's powerful and emotional from start to finish.
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a phenominal movie. Andy Serkis as Caesar is the best performance by an actor this year so far. He deserves an Oscar nomination for this one.
