The third installment of this re-booted franchise is probably the best one yet!
Caesar (Serkis) and his people are pitted in an all-out war that causes HUGH casualties to his colony. Caesar is desperate to save his people while still trying to exact revenge upon the Army Colonel (Harrelson) who is leading the charge to destroy Caesar and his people.
A new uninhabited area to live has been discovered by Caesar’s son. It’s decided that all of the colony should move immediately to this new area. Caesar on the other hand is going after the Colonel. A few of Caesar’s men convince Caesar to let them come with him. It’s believed that that the rest of colony has made the journey to the new area.
Caesar and his posse happen upon the Colonel’s camp, but soon they find out that the Colonel has out foxed them and captured the colony. The story unfolds from there…
“Action-Packed, Suspenseful, Intriguing, Heart-Wrenching and Fast-Paced” are the best words to describe “War for the Planet of the Apes”. The movie is entertaining, smart and well-acted, but also a bit bloody. There are many “Epic” moments. This is one of the best rebooted franchises that I have seen in quite some time.
If you are a fan of the Planet of the Apes franchise, than “War for the Planet of the Apes” should not be missed.
This is a 4 ½ Star Movie!
