It’s thrilling that the Ape prequels, based on a mostly low-rent franchise that ran from the late ’60s through the mid ’70s, are turning out to be visionary grade-A entertainments in the classic mold. The reason that Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is going to turn out well, I suspect, is because of director Matt Reeves, who did a bang-up job with 2010’s Let Me In, a remake of Let The Right One In.
