War for the Planet of the Apes 
Caesar's Journey
3.5/4 stars

The rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise reaches its third installment, the final film in a trilogy driven by Andy Serkis’ Caesar. Matt Reeves helms this epic masterfully, taking the series to new territory. After the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, men and apes are at war. Caesar has been forced into the conflict, not because he wanted to, but because he knows what man is capable of. We see him and his monkeys pitted against the ruthless Colonel, played by Woody Harrelson, who is bent over the extermination of ape-kind. Caesar must now face his own demons as he prepares for one last battle.

This entry in the series brings to a close one of the greatest character journeys we’ve seen in recent history. These films are very character driven, where the apes are even more human than the humans presented. Andy Serkis delivers once again a very strong performance as Caesar, and his development as a character continues being a powerfully captivating one. We see him struggle with the same demons that plagued Koba in the previous films, whose presence remains to be felt despite his absence. His tale reaches biblical magnitude, mimicking in more than one way the figure of Moses. Watching him from his birth back on Rise, seeing him grow on intelligence and become a fighter for ape freedom, later see him guiding the growth of civilization in Dawn, face treason and near-death experience, understanding mankind to an extent, and now as he wages war for the future of his race has been a wonderful spectacle. Andy Serkis deserves many awards for all three films.
