    Lisa Marie Bowman85 - A surprisingly intelligent epic.
    Sober Film Critic James Brown84 - Marked by outstanding motion capture special effects, rich performances from its robust cast, and an engaging storyline that expands on the success of its predecessor, this new foray into the world of apes has invigorated the sleepy summer box office.

    Bryan Lienesch83 - Captivating, yes, but also painfully formulaic. I felt like I knew the story before it was told.
