Director: Matt Reeves
Cast: Andy Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Steve Zahn, Amiah Miller, Karin Konoval, Judy Greer and Terry Notary
What’s Good: Andy Serkis’ performance, visual effects, camerawork
What’s Bad: The film is a bit too long, I wish it was a little shorter.
I am a fan of the ‘Planet of the Apes’ franchise. I loved their previous two movies. They were simply amazing, both in terms of story and in terms of screenplay. The way the previous movie ended, I hoped for an awesome sequel with a face to face war between the apes and the humans. But the movie dissapointed me badly.
Story : Humans and apes are at war. Humans are fighting to destroy the ape population from the earth who are gradually outnumbering them thanks to the Simian flu. While the flu is converting humans into apes, it has made apes genetically more intelligent. Apes are peace loving by nature and are fighting to protect themselves. Suddenly, their leader Caesar is taken captive by the human army from the North. The human Colonel is merciless who starves and tortures imprisoned apes before killing them, his only aim being wiping out apes from earth and restoring human dominance. Meanwhile another war breaks out between humans and humans.
Will Caesar will be able to save the apes? And Who wins in the end??
War For The Planet Of The Apes Review
I am the man of ‘story’. I look for a plot on every movie. I didn’t find a good one here. Throughout the movie there was just search and search, and some torture, and an escape, nothing sort of a true “war” which the movie is titled.
If something was good, that was definitely the 3D effects. And the places where the movie is shot, they are all eye-catching. And finally, Ceasar and his group. That’s all the good stuff. 🙂
War For The Planet Of The Apes Review: Star Performance
Andy Serkis as Caesar delivers an excellent performance.
Steve Zahn’s Bad Ape, a funny chimpanzee from the zoo provides the much needed comic relief to this otherwise serious drama.
Amiah Miller in the role of war orphan Nova stole my heart. She is a mute child who is adopted by Maurice, an ape belonging to Caesar’s tribe. Even though Amiah doesn’t have a single dialogue in the film, her character being unable to speak, her eyes are a sea of expressions!
Woody Harrelson is equally good as the human Colonel.

I have so much expectation from this movie but it disappointed me.
