Andy Serkis revolutionized the motion-capture genre, and his work as Caesar in this finale, as well as a the whole current Planet of the Apes trilogy was once again worthy of Oscar contention, and once again, ignored.

Not as action packed as I thought. But it's good enough thanks to its stellar visuals, dark tone, thematically rich story, and great actors.

Really strong close to the new trilogy of Planet of the Apes films - Andy Serkis proves (once again) that he should be nominated for a mo-cap role that rivals most live-action performances out there. Woody Harrelson goes all Colonel Kurtz (get this man some kind bud now) while newcomer Amiah Miller expresses a lot without ever saying a word as the silent Nova. Steven Zahn lightens the mood, providing comic relief in an otherwise dead serious film that has action, heart and drama - and hopefully we get more.

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 …

2 years after the events of Dawn, Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his Apes live in harmony in their woodland home, until a military attack leaves their home destroyed and the Apes left to find a new home. Caesar, angered by the death of his wife and son, goes on a quest to find and kill the human colonel (Woody Harrelson) who sent the soldiers.
The first thing I'd like to say is that I really enjoyed this movie. A lot of people didn't like the fact that this was a more slow burn, dramatic, character driven piece, rather than 2 hours of Apes and humans fighting each other. I personally didn't mind the slow burn style, because along the way we meet new characters (mute human girl Nova, played brilliantly by Amiah Miller without ever having any dialogue, and comedy relief Bad Ape, Steve Zahn …

"This is our last stand. And if we lose... it will be a Planet of Apes".
"War for the Planet of the Apes" has many intriguing plot points and plenty of great opportunities to shine as a great movie. I mean, with the previous two films that I liked so much and how the effects manage to improve over time is amazing. And this movie is worth seeing just for Andy Serkis performance and the incredible also realistic effects. Unfortunately, the rest is very uneven. While being a decent third installment, but draws the oldest cliches from the books.
Andy Serkis continues to impress us not just by giving us another great performance, but to convey all the emotions with his body and face while being coved with heavy effects. Serkis is the only actor that we think as expressed all of his …
