Andy Serkis proves himself king of the motion-capture role yet again in a taut sequel to the reborn sci-fi franchise

It’s genetically modified humanoid apes versus genetically modified humanoid raccoons — well, one raccoon at least — on DVD shelves this week. And while both have their individual fighting strengths, you have to hand it to the simians: Matt Reeves’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Fox, 12) is a dynamite extension of a franchise that should by rights have run out of story space-years ago. Smartly fashioned less as sci-fi than as an all-out, dirt-on-the-lens combat film, it’s the most satisfying Apes adventure since Charlton Heston’s spaceship first crash-landed on not-so-unknown territory.

While the war between man and monkey is more heated than ever in this 2026-set sequel, the human characters here are simpering ciphers compared to the film’s richer, gutsier, considerably hairier ensemble of ape characters, realised with jaw-dropping digital fluidity. Now a colony leader and morally equitable warlord, Andy Serkis’s Caesar has evolved into a magnetic protagonist, flesh and blood in all but his technical constitution. He would hold together even a film less urgently paced and sharply crafted than this one.

Woman in the Moon – Philip French on Fritz Lang’s restored moon-mission yarn
(Fritz Lang, 1929; Eureka!, U; DVD/Blu-ray)

Fritz Lang was not merely a major practitioner of genre cinema but the creator of several genres, and a German documentary accompanying this handsomely restored 163-minute version of his last silent picture is correctly called The First Scientific Science-Fiction Film.

It has two claims on our attention, first as a landmark in the history of science fiction pictures that stretches from Méliès’s A Trip to the Moon (1902) to Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, and second, for its important contribution to rocketry and space travel. Lang was inspired by the 1923 book The Rocket into Interplanetary Space by Hermann Oberth, who became the film’s scientific adviser and later an important figure in the team that developed the V2 rocket in the second world war and carried on the work in postwar America.

The Originals: The Complete First Season (Blu-ray)

Reviewed by Gordon Sullivan
Quote: "Though The Originals feels significantly more mature than The Vampire Diaries, it's still a show about vampires, werewolves and witches backstabbing each other for supremacy."
