Dawn Planet of the Apes Poster LargeThis week on the show we focus on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes but we’re a wounded beast. No Dan, No Blake, No Kevin…No problem. You get Tom and Joe but, more importantly, Rich Handley steps into save the day. Who’s Rich Handley you ask? He is our resident Ape expert. Not like in a “Dian Fossey” kind of way. But in a ‘he’s written multiple books about the franchise” kind of way.

Rich has written stuff like Timeline of the Planet of the Apes and Lexicon of the Planet of the Apes. So if you have Ape questions, he has Ape answers. Do you have an entry on Wookieepedia? Well, he does. What have you done with your life?

It’s Reel Spoilers #50 – Dawn of the Planet of Apes.

You’ve been warned.

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Joe Buttice, Rich Handley

Movie Review: ‘Dawn of The Planet of The Apes’ Starring Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman
Jul 2014 11

Dawn Planet of the Apes Poster LargeAs far as reboots of well established franchises go, Rise of the Planet of the Apes certainly ranked among the ones that was (or is, if you still haven’t seen it) very well worth your time. I certainly wish more sequels would turn out like this one.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes leads off with the leader of the apes, Caesar (Andy Serkeis), clad in battle paint alongside the rest of his crew out on a hunt. It’s immediately apparent that Dawn of the Planet of The Apes takes place several years after the events of Rise. There’s not only a progression of Caesar and his civilization, but there was a massive breakout of a simian virus that came about as a result of the genetic manipulation of the apes. The virus exhibited such severity in that a massive portion of humanity had been wiped out, and for a time it seems the apes are running the planet.

Naturally, there are still some humans left in the midst of the madness. Enter Malcolm (Jason Clarke), who serves as a leader of sorts among the human characters, and can be deemed the most level-headed of them. Alongside Malcolm is his wife, Ellie (Keri Russell), his son Alexander (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Okay, I previously stated that Malcolm is the leader of the humans, but that role would technically go to Dreyfus, played by none other than Commissioner G….. Gary Oldman. Dreyfus has an increasing distrust of the apes and their overall intentions, and is determined to do whatever it takes to protect the remnants of humanity. Associate of Dreyfus, Carver (Kirk Acevedo), serves as the archetype discriminatory, anger ridden douchebag. You know there’s always a quota to fill for that role in any type of apocalypse movie, right?
