Our favourite intelligent and genetically enhanced apes are back. After two films, you would think by now apes and humans would put their differences aside and hug it out but the war between the two species still continues.
In the third instalment of the Planet of the Apes reboot series, Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a confrontation with an army of humans led by a merciless colonel (Woody Harrelson) over the control of Earth.
Top notch performances from the cast. Andy Serkis stands out as the leader of the ape tribe, delivering a character driven performance. A strong supporting cast featuring a solid performance from Woody Harrelson as the film’s villain.
Director Matt Reeves presents an awesome follow up to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Reeves’ direction is superb, guiding remarkable performances from his motion-captured ape cast along with the human cast. The production design, cinematography and editing are terrific. Fantastic action, great story and impressive special effects make War for the Planet of the Apes a worthy successor.
An entertaining blockbuster where you can go apes, War for the Planet of the Apes is one of the best sequels made. Better than the first two films with more action and tension between Apes and Humans. This latest instalment of the franchise won’t disappoint fans.
Rating: 4/5 Stars
