Huh, I'm really excited for this movie, and I loved Rise, but for some reason I feel Planet of the Apes doesn't really work nowadays. It feels and looks kinda goofy watching CGI Apes firing guns and riding horses. Maybe if it was make up I'd feel better, but then you' loose Andy Serkis' great performances. I'll see it next weekend, but I'm very on the fence. All the positive reviews is great though!
As someone who enjoyed Rise but thought Caesar riding a horse in it looked and felt silly, you'll be happy to know that same thought never crossed my mind during Dawn.
That's good to hear. Probably feel a lot better watching it in the theater than on a computer screen.
