Highly Suspect Reviews: ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’

The Unusual Suspects are all fans of the 2011 Apes reboot, Rise of the Planet of the Apes. And why wouldn’t we be? Rather than trying to remake the original classic (like Tim Burton so lamely tried to do), director Rupert Wyatt decided to tell the tale from the beginning, as we saw how the apes gained their sentience and how the downfall of humanity began.

But we were understandably cynical about Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Could lightning strike twice? Even from a different director, with Cloverfield helmer Matt Reeves now at the helm?

Luckily, we needn’t have worried. Listen to Beau, Chris, Ashley and Eliott all have simian opinions on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
