MPR's Movie Maven Stephanie Curtis joins Steve Seel and Jill Riley to talk about the latest film that continues the story of how ultra-intelligent simian Caesar presides over the fall of human civilization.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves, and it stars Andy Serkis, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman and Judy Greer. Stephanie calls it "fabulously entertaining," and describes this reboot as far removed from the Tim Burton take on the franchise. Listen to the audio above to hear Stephanie's full review.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and action, and brief strong language. It is playing at theaters everywhere.
