Enjoyable sequel with stunning CGI
Verified purchase
Development of characters is very good. Clever mix of broken dialogue and sign language gives a depth to the character interactions. Didn't personally think the storyline was slow; felt that this added interest to the movie. Despite this there are to be expected intense battle scenes and immense cgi. Opening scene was particularly clever. Some scene and character ideas taken from Spartacus film and Star Wars episode 4 Tuscan raider scene imo.
Having seen the original 70s time lapsed episodes, this is a great and emotionally charged version that kept me drawn in throughout the film.

Was Caesar played by Daniel Craig?!
Verified purchase
Excuse the jokey headline, but c'mon - once you see it, you can never unsee it... "My name's Kong, James Kong". Anyhoo, the original films and TV series bring back my childhood with a proustian rush, and whilst the Tim Burton reboot failed miserably, this new vision for the franchise truly created a dramatic, believable, and relatable reimagining. All the powerful social analogies for race and prejudice remain, previously unexplored issues such as the devolution of mankind are elegantly adressed, and the CGI takes us deep into the uncanny valley without once seeming jarring or slamming the viewer back to reality with a painful jolt. That said, the production team made a rod for their own back when they decided to retain apes mounted on horseback, as a 400lb mountain gorilla would snap even a shire or war horse's spine, and chimps with itty bitty legs just look hilarious in the saddle (especially when you mentally project Daniel Craig onto Terry Sirkis' supreme performance as Caesar.) Regardless, this is certainly one of the best recent reboots of a classic, and I genuinely can't wait for Conquest of TPOTA.....or should that be Kongquest?

Really Annoying that scree returns to Home page before the end.
Verified purchase
This isn’t about the film, which was fine, but I missed the end because Amazon has the cheek to automatically return to the home screen before the end of a movie. It’s bad enough when you just miss the credits (we are in post production and WANT to see the credits), but this one actually defaulted to the home screen with about three minutes of the move to ho and no matter how many times I returned (and had to fast forward through the whole movie again) it kept defaulting. I’d like my money back because it’s not on, but fat chance. Still
Haven’t seen the end!

Gripping end to the trilogy....
Verified purchase
I have watched the original Planet of the apes films which were good but the recent trilogy of the story is far superior in every respect. An plausible concept throughout where you are drawn to the characters of the stories and especially to Caesar and his family and companions. War for the Planet of the apes was a triumphant finale and did not disappoint...although I would have been happier with a different ending ( do not want to spoil it for those who have not yet seen it)! The three films are among my favourites to watch and I wholeheartedly recommend a view.

A good ending to the trilogy but left a storyline opening for another film?
Verified purchase
Perhaps it’s just me but if anyone has read the excellent book ‘Clan of the Cave Bear’ by Jean Auel you might be thinking the same thing. I believe there was also a rather dodgy film made too....

I liked this film. It had a worthwhile plot to back up the plentiful violence and aggression associated with war. Interesting subplots and a couple of new, rather endearing characters are introduced to lighten what could have been an overly oppressive feel.

Thought provoking sentiments and ironies abound. An enjoyable watch.

The best trilogy ever!!!
Verified purchase
I loved this movie/trilogy so much!! I was so hooked and had to finish the movies in three days (if it wasn’t for work commitments I would have finished them all the same day).

The trilogy is just really fulfilling and definitely comes full circle and may or not have made me cry! I never knew these movies had a trilogy so it was great to see it and has become one of my favourite trilogies of all time.

Having watched and re-watched the previous two I was very anxious to see this one. I was not disappointed. Andy Serkis' performance is mesmerising. I forgot that he was a man and not Cesar. Although the story was a bit slow in parts and the ending isnt the happy one I'd have liked this is nonetheless a great, thought provoking film that will stay with me for years. I fear that humans beings don't need to wait for a pandemic to kill us off we are doing that ourselves anyway.
