No one was more confused than me when Marvel announced what their 4 upcoming films in Phase 2 would be, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Guardians of the Galaxy. The big question, what the hell is Guardians of the Galaxy. I did a few Google searches and was able to safely assume it was an intergalactic, interspecies superhero team similar to The Avengers. But as more and more arose about the film including…Chris Pratt, my interest began to rise. Then the glorious day came when the first trailer was put out and I was instantly sold. Then the amazing reviews only got me more excited and the day finally came when I returned from vacation and was able to see for myself what all the hype was about.
I’ve got nothing witty to say. This film is freaking amazing. Let’s get right to it. I’m Linus Schill, and this is my review of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
When I saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes back in 2011, I loved t, and was blown away at the visual effects. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes really does take it to places you couldn’t have imagined. It is amazing the work and effort they put into this movie. As apposed to recent films, ahem, Transformers: Age of I don’t give a sh*t. The story was a perfect continuation of where the last film left off. It was reminiscent to the beginning of World War Z, in a good way, in that they didn’t waste too much time explaining what happened, how it happened, and when it happened. That’s the kind of thing we already knew from the previous film, can be shown briefly in the opening titles, and the rest we can figure out for ourselves. It allowed this film to be less of a science fiction film, and more of a character-driven epic. A lot of work was also put into the characters. What was so amazing about this film was that not only did the humans have complexity and depth, but so did the apes. And to call them apes diminishes their potential. In this film we see them become more than just animals, we see them become people with personalities, emotions, and feelings.
After this movie, can't you just wait for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to come out. I’m Linus Schill, and this is my review of Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Coming soon to your local theater! Its everything you want in a Michael Bay film! God awful dialogue, all white cast, at least one girl with short-shorts, explosions, slow motion, and what looks like a junk yard put in a blender, which could also be called “action scenes”.
