War for the Planet of the Apes

War for the Planet of the Apes (2017)

Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama

The 3rd film in the reboot franchise that started in 2011 and quite honestly I enjoyed this movie ๐Ÿ™‚ . The graphics are really good, the story is much darker and I was quite captivated throughout ๐Ÿ™‚ . There are many bad reviews I have seen about this and I can get where they are coming from. It is a tad predictable (but if you have seen any of the first movies from the 60โ€™s then you should know how this should go ๐Ÿ˜› ) and itโ€™s not a typical war film. Well I think it has enough war elements for a Planet of the Apes movie but if you were expecting a proper one side vs. another than this is not that. It is messier with a real nasty side of war sliding in with desperate humans who arenโ€™t all kind. I personally did not mind these issues ๐Ÿ™‚ . I liked the references to the story to come (to the 60โ€™s start) such as introducing a small child Nova (Amiah Miller) and I really liked the flashbacks of Koba (Toby Kebbell) when Caesar (Andy Serkis) was at his worst. I also loved the new addition of Bad Ape played by Steve Zahn who was lovely and really funny ๐Ÿ˜€ .ย  There are some shocking and sad moments in this such as the scene in the cave and you do truly feel so sorry for Caesar. My favourite scene was the escape from the โ€œHuman Zooโ€ (I wonโ€™t say what scene specifically as I donโ€™t want to spoil ๐Ÿ˜› ). I personally liked this movie more than the second one in the reboot and it felt fitting for the end movie. However, I would have preferred a different ending but that is just me I think not a reflection of the overall film. A great watch and needs to be seen to finish off the Planet of the Apes reboot movies ๐Ÿ™‚ . Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

I give this film 4.5 Stars out of 5!
