Easily one of the best sci-fi blockbusters of the past twenty years, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes really is essential viewing - especially in today's world. Set a number of years after the events of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, a small group of human survivors are holed up in San Francisco who mistakenly cross over into the territory held by Caesar - played by Andy Serkis via CGI. At first, the two seem to be able to coeexist, but elements in both groups seem intent on pushing towards a showdown. It's dark stuff, but there really is some incredible setpieces and the story itself is handled incredibly well. Highly recommended.
