    Synopsis


    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
    A war begins to brew between man and ape in this sequel to the 2011 hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes. It's been ten years since the Simian Flu wiped out most of humanity, and somewhere deep in the woods outside of San Francisco, Caesar (voice and performance capture by Andy Serkis) and his primate companions have established a thriving village built on the principles of peace and community. Shortly after welcoming a baby brother into the family, Caesar's son Blue Eyes (Nick Thurston) is walking through the forest with his friend Ash (Doc Shaw) when they cross paths with a human named Carver (Kirk Acevedo), who impulsively draws his gun and shoots Ash at the first sign of aggression. As it turns out, Carver is part of a human expedition led by Malcolm (Jason Clarke), who, along with the rest of his crew, races to Carver's side just as Caesar and the rest of the apes answer Blue Eyes' desperate call for help. An enraged Caesar drives the humans away after realizing they are no longer a threat, and decides to dispatch a small crew to follow them rather than yield to the pleas of his aggressive advisor Koba (Toby Kebbell) to launch an all-out attack. Instead, he decides to show the apes' strength by amassing outside of the humans' makeshift community at the base of an unfinished tower, making it unmistakably clear that the two species should remain apart. Meanwhile, the point of the human excursion was to get a dormant dam running again in order to power their community, which will soon be thrust into darkness should they fail to take action. Convinced that he could strike a truce with Caesar that would allow the humans to repair the dam, which is located on the apes' land, Malcolm gets permission from human leader Dreyfus (Gary Oldman) to set out on his mission. Incredibly, thanks to the help of his girlfriend Ellie (Keri Russell), his son Alexander (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and a few other key allies, Malcolm succeeds. Still, his truce with the apes is a fragile one, and just when it seems that the primates and humans have learned to coexist in peace, a shocking act of betrayal threatens to spark a war that will determine the dominant species. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Not For The Movie Itself but...

      Purchased this Blu_ray disc at Bestbuy and received promo code for "War of Apes Movie Money". Attempt to redeem came back fraudulent. After being on hold (20 mins) with fandango for a chat, sending a screenshot, then being given a phone number to call (1-877-312-0676), explaining the issue, I was told they would have to escalate the investigation which would take 3-5 business days. All this for a $7.50 movie ticket? I want to see the monkeys, not be one!

      With War for the Planet of the Apes recently released, this was a great BluRay Combo package for the price. It also came with $7.50 off a War movie ticket which was a great savings! The best thing about this series though is the evolution of Caesar as a character as he grows to become a leader, a protector, and a father. Also they are really different than the original films, even though they are prequels. They are very character focused. A must watch!

      Two Awesome Movies in Two Different Ways

      The Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a touching, serious depiction of the road to disaster being paved with good intentions. The Dawn continues from the first movie and is an absolutely outrageous depiction of gun-toting, horseback riding, tank operating primates unleashing their fury on the remnants of humanity. I'm sure the third will not disappoint in the sequel escalation department.

      as for the movies, i would give "Rise" a B-. the "ape virus" could have had a better story line to make the sequels more clear. "Dawn" i would give a solid B. i enjoyed it more than "Rise". as for the videos, "Rise" had a VERY hard time loading. my vcr is an older model, so i attribute the problem w/ that. "Dawn", the sound cut out. i had to rewind for the sound to come back.

      After watching part three in the series I immediately knew I HAD TO watch parts one and two. I almost purchased these movies individually. Instead, buying this two pack saved me money and offered the convenience of having both movies in the same package. Also, I transferred them into digital format to keep in my VUDU account.

      Perfect way to Get Ready for War

      Honestly, this is one of my favorite modern series of films. It outlines the journey of Apes before they ruled the world in the original PLANET OF THE APES. Andy Serkis delivered Vera AJ insanely powerful performance in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Definitely get these movies if you enjoy a deep story with emotion and action.

      I must admit I purchased this 1. For her great price and 2. For the free code to see the third installment in the trilogy. I only recently viewed the first film again and enjoyed it. Wish I could give a better review. I need to give the second movie another chance because of the reading of the subtitles for the apes communication

      Loved them when I originally watched them in theaters but held off in purchasing. Decided to pick this up in preparation for War and to introduce my daughter to the films. She loved them nearly as much as me. Fantastic storylines and acting. Really looking forward to the conclusion.
