Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

We finally caught Dawn of Planet of the Apes after months of waiting. The movie was displayed in 3-D but I was not impressed by that. The movie itself is a good one and I would recommend it. I will definitely purchase the DVD.
The story, unlike what I had thought, is not just simply the apes attacking humans or humans attacking the apes. It was more than that which make it to have a sequel. I don't know if they have it in their plans or not but it sure has another story to follow it.
I don't want to spoil the movie for the ones who haven't seen it yet but what it would be is there's a disagreement in between two apes, Caesar, the leader of the group which in the previous movie led all the apes to freedom and Koba, one of smart apes in the lab which was freed later on. 
The disagreement and that is because Koba believes Caesar is too soft on humans, concludes in Koba stealing a gun from the remaining humans and shooting Caesar with it after killing two guys. He, after that, sets fire to the apes community and blames everything on humans. 
He then led the convinced apes in an attack to the city and eventually defeats humans and tries to take control. The rest of the story is interesting but even I would like to see it for the second time. Don't miss it and wait, for sure, for the sequel! 4 out of 5 star, at least. 
The visual and sound effects are amazing and Andy Serkis and other actors and actresses who play apes are very natural in their moves, talks and behaviour.
