I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.
I no longer care that Andy Serkis has not won an Oscar. Though I think it’s about time that more people appreciate that performance-capture technology simply captures a performance like a movie camera.
His second performance as Caesar is a sight to behold and the VFX by the always brilliant Weta Digital are truly wonderful. You believe those Apes are there!
While the premise does seem to be a little small, the tension in this movie is palpable. Just as one shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, one shouldn’t judge a movie by the number of “of the”’s in its name.
“Dawn” is a brilliantly acted and wonderfully realised masterpiece. I saw this in 3D and 2D and I have to say I approve both. So there’s no excuse to miss out!
