Plot: After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. Runtime: 140 mins Release Date: 14 Jul 2017
Before i saw this movie i looked at some people's opinions about it and i saw mostly negative reviews, so i was really nervous going into this movie thinking that i would have had the same reaction to it and seriously i have no idea what those people are talking about. So War for the planet of the apes is the 3rd film in the new prequel/Reboot of the planet of the apes movies. And this is about Caeser going on a journey to stop a war between his apes and an army of highly trained soldiers, while he also tries to control his more violent instincts. First the obvious, the CGI is amazing and <more>
is truly a technological marvel to cinema. Andy Serkis once again plays the ape ruler Caesar and is easily the best movie character in recent years, in each film he has gotten progressively better and in this one it is definitely the best performance. The story is great and is well acted throughout. This movie is also an amazing drama. There are a lot of moments that just make you jerk a tear every once in a while and its believable. The action sequences are pretty good too. Woody Harrelson plays the colonel and he does a pretty good job at it He is not as good as koba but still good . He is just a character that you can relate to and you understand why he is doing all of this. Caesar and the colonel are pretty relatable. As much as i would love to say how great this movie is, i better stop right here. I loved every part of this movie and i did not find anything i did not like about it, but i am gonna talk about why i think most people were disappointed with this film. So if you watched all the trailers and looked at the title you may be expecting one thing, a ton of apes and humans fighting with guns and rockets. But although there is some of that in this movie, its definitely not the main point of it. This movie to its core is about the war that a person faces emotionally while war is happening around him. We see this concept with Caesar all the way through the movie. It also talks about what terrible things a person or people would do in a war. Woody Harrelson's character does what he does because he believes that the entire human race is going to go extinct if he does not act. I mean, would you do that if you knew that you could slowly be replaced by another species? So some people do not like this film because they were expecting a full on hardcore war movie. And it is that, but it really is a commentary about how a person has a war within themselves when war is happening around them. And people either missed, did not care, or did not understand the more darker themes about this movie. But anyway, in the end i thought this movie was a masterpiece in every way it could have been. It has amazing CGI, performances, action sequences, dark themes, tear jerking moments, and a beautiful moral to it. A+ or 10/10 APES TOGETHER STRONG!
there is something deeply wrong with so many IMDb user (by madonaalaeddine)
I am astonished, truly, that a hollow movie like spider-man; homecoming that is instantly forgettable and fixated on lame themes of stupid first-world teenage angst scored better user reviews than this masterpiece. it really says a lot about the mindlessness of modern cinema audiences, especially when the main argument is that ' there isn't enough war'. that said, user reviews are moronic. Planet of the apes is a triumph, really touching and thought, provoking on so many levels. i saw it days ago and the emotion of the film is still very fresh in my mind. in fact the more it <more>
occurs to me, the richer the movie becomes. if this is not nominated in the best film Oscars category, then the Academy is as daft as so many IMDb users.
I enjoyed this film and found quite familiar with the taste of editing style. This film is originally a job of Mr.Stan Salfas, ACE! His editing is strictly based on storytelling methodology of Robert McKee. His beautiful cuts in this film are appeared in the sequence in which Caesar's family killed by the Colonel. The close ups between Caesar and the Colonel are well managed in the most tragic moment. On the other hands, it is when Caesar was suddenly shot after the death of the Colonel in silence. Caesar is a typical oppressed nation's leader, and the Colonel is a classical <more>
imperialist army officer. Mr.Salfas's reverse cutting reveals this core conflict. What I appreciate is that US films reveal the evilness of imperial acts taken by its politicians. Self-criticism is done by filmmaking. Moreover, it successfully turned into the blockbuster entertainment. Individualism and anti-imperialism attitude are quite strong, and other sub characters need more intelligence. Caesar and the Colonel are too big. I prefer more anti-imperialism, and more collectivism. Fortune is not religiously decided but it cannot individually be controlled. What we can do is to do our best efforts under difficulties. At least, the apes expressed this thought.
everyone who gave this film a 1* rating? (by urthpainter)
Seriously needs to reevaluate the criteria by which they review films. Why? Because giving this film 1/10 says, "I am ignorant of quality film making." Descriptions like slow and boring just don't cut it! Opinions like this are an act of ultimate laziness - the inability to mentally invest in the passive experience of a film. An inability to invest in a well made film that has something to say no less.Everyone has the right to an opinion - but when a person abandons merit before their eyes, and quality film making is overlooked by choice? That is simply, unfortunate. I can <more>
continue to admonish those without taste, but what good is that?War for the Planet of the Apes isn't a good movie - it's a Great movie!!! I thought part one was above average, part two was surprisingly good - but this movie? Its a borderline classic!In a nutshell, War for the Planet of the Apes is a struggle for survival between Caesar's group of sentient apes gorillas, orangutans , and a derelict group of soldiers led by a broken/crazed leader. This fight begins as open warfare but moves to very close quarter survival between captors and prisoners. There is a lot of heavy, dramatic sequences - and I would say this movie compromises entertainment for meaningful content. Normally I am very critical of this type of film, but not this time! Everything serves the characters and story - and in doing so becomes a project that far exceeds the sum of its parts. Yes this movie has death, suffering and plight - and it also has heroism, empathy and displays the strength of unity.The effects are astonishing - and immediately allow the viewer to slip into the world in a believable way. It is possible that this movie is 5 years ahead of its time. It may be a while before another film achieves this level of drama, all while being a heavily effect driven experience.Apparently this movie requires an active viewer. A person actually has to show up, absorb the content of a film that will not pander to selfish, "give me action" needs. More science fiction should be this brave and literate. I love movies that ask interesting questions and can bring you on an emotional adventure. It is surprising to me that the third film in this trilogy would improve so much on the previous two films - good movies in their own right.Way more I could talk up: great soundtrack! The music both blends in and adds to the drama/action - the best kind of soundtracking - beautiful camera work in interesting locations, and several unique characters, many of whom never utter a word of dialog! This movie is full of great character building, and all the big moments really land where they should.For me, best movie of the 2017 summer - maybe the year!All the 1* reviews at IMDb are a mystery... audience approval for this movie isn't this low. Very odd, anyways for those who care, critics got this one right - 9/10

Putting the "ape" in "The Great Esc-ape" (by bob-the-movie-man)
2011's "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was the one of the big movie surprises for me of that year. With staggeringly good mo-cap for the apes and a touching and memorable story it was for me was a 10* classic. 2014's "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" whilst also good took a slight backward step. With "War", the form is back almost to top notch, and this is a summer release at last deserving of the suffix "blockbuster".We have moved a number of years forwards from the events of "Dawn" and society as we know it has crumbled away still <more>
further: even the "Holidays are Coming" Coke lorry is no longer in service, so things MUST be bad! We begin the film with the apes having a nice 'Centre Parcs' break when their reverie and cappuccinos are rudely interrupted by the attacking forces of "The Colonel" Woody Harrelson, "Triple 9", "Zombieland" . For The Colonel is intent on tracking down and killing ape-leader Caesar Andy Serkis, "LOTR" .After things get decidedly personal, Caesar leaves his young son Cornelius in a nice nod to the Roddy McDowell role in the original films to find and kill The Colonel. So follows a "True Grit" style pursuit/revenge chase, made more similar to this analogy by the picking up of a waif-like mute girl the excellent Amiah Miller . I found this to be a really emotional plot line, with Caesar torn between the animal drive of his revenge and his role as a leader to his whole community.The film analogies continue as we take in a "Shining"-style winter hotel; a gritty Prisoner-of-War camp escape drama "The Great Esc- ape"? ; a barricades battle in the style of Helm's Deep in "LOTR: The Two Towers"; and a full-on Coppola-style helicopter-based war sequence "Ape-ocalypse now", as graffiti in the film declares .Once again, the mo-cap ability to express true emotions on the faces of the apes is mind-blowing, with Serkis again being outstanding as is Steve Zahn "Dallas Buyer's Club" adding some very funny comic relief as "Bad Ape". While Woody Harrelson is not everyone's cup of tea including mine , here I found him to be actually very good "SO EMOTIONAL"! as the half crazed dictator forcing beings he sees as less worthy than his kind to build a wall. That's just SO familiar... think dammit... think...! There's a really cool plot twist in The Colonel's character arc that I really didn't see coming. Just so cool. Another star of the film for me was Michael Giacchino's music which is simply awesome. Starting with a superbly retro rendition of the 20th Century Fox theme not top of my list: "The Simpson's Movie" still holds that spot for me! Giacchino decorates every scene with great themes and like all great film music some of it you barely notice. A dramatic telling by the Colonel of his back-story is accompanied by sonorous music that is similar in its power to James Horner's classic "Electronic Battlefield" in "Patriot Games": only when the scene finishes and the music stops do you appreciate how central it was to the emotion of the scene. The script by "Dawn" collaborators Mark Bomback and director Matt Reeves is eventful and packs a dramatic punch particularly in the last half of the film. The talented Mr Reeves who also directed "Cloverfield" and "Let Me In" and is assigned to direct the next Ben Affleck outing as "The Batman" directs with panache, never letting the foot come off the tension pedal. On the downside, that "last half of the film" is still 70 minutes away, and whilst I appreciate a leisurely pace for properly setting characters and motivations in place, getting to those simply brilliant scenes set at "the border" is a bit of a slog that might have been tightened up and moved along a bit quicker. Also, while talking about editing, I would have personally ended the film about 90 seconds before they did.I saw this in 3D, but the effects are subtle at best although there is a nice binocular rangefinder view . In my opinion it's not worth going out of your way to experience in 3D. But overall I loved this movie. The film is chock full of visual delights for film lovers one of my favourites being "Bedtime for Bonzo" - a nice historical film reference - written on the back of a soldier's helmet . An epic action film with a strong emotional core to the story that genuinely moved me. There may be other spin-off Planet of the Apes films to follow. But if they left this here, as a near-perfect trilogy, that would be absolutely fine by me. For the full graphical review of the film, please visit bob-the- movie-man.com. Thanks .
Too many 1 star ratings....somethings up (by Uncle-Feggster)
Sometimes, when I read reviews about movies on IMDb, I see patterns in the writing. Similar text, similar structuring and similar indignant shouting. Read enough of them and you see that quite often there is an underlying reason why the reviews are marking a film so low. Be it political or religious. Very rarely is it actually about the quality of the film. More often it is about a personal issue that the reviewer has - and so he vents his anger in the only way that's he knows how - a screaming one star rating and a list of reasons why the film is the worst he has ever seen. Makes you <more>
wonder what kind of a strange person would do that.However, if you read past all the silly 1 star ratings you often get to the truth. And the truth as far as this film is concerned is that it is a cracker. It draws you in like none of the other ape movies - it's pacing is superb, the visual effect stunning. I would suggest that you ignore the ranting 1 star reviews and take them for what's they are - a few individuals with multiple accounts and strange views on the world.
A true epic trilogy better than previous ones Oscar deserving! (by asb_deutsch)
Rise of the Planet of the Apes was the one of the big movie surprises for me of that year. With staggeringly good motion capture for the apes and a touching story of Caesar and Co. it was a classic. What made me not notice that the apes were CGI!Next in "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes", we are caught in the feelings of man and mammals- though good but took a backward step, making it a little "dawn" and more "war".Finally, in "War for the Planet of the Apes", we get a thought provoking "emotional" script than action. The movie goes deep in the <more>
characters, especially Caesar.How many trilogies end with a successful second sequel/ third installment? To my perception, only Toy Story 3 and Bourne Ultimatum fits the puzzle. The conclusion is much better than LoTR, The Hobbit old- fashioned ending and even The Dark Knight Rises Incoherent ending; I hope Nolan finds better luck in Dunkirk! . War of the Planet of the Apes with Spider-man: Homecoming can be labeled as June's best popcorn flick- duo. Verdict- A moment to rejoice! After a long time the critics are totally in sync with me. If you have a nice narration, you don't need 3D at all, which many people are complaining! My significant digit score: 7.9/10
Greetings again from the darkness. Counting the original in 1968, this is the ninth Planet of the Apes film sourced from the Pierre Boulle novel , and the third in the most recent reimagining – including Rise of the Planet of the Apes 2011 and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014 . That's almost 50 years of talking apes questioning the role, purpose and intent of humans. Director Matt Reeves Let Me In, Cloverfield is back after 'Dawn' and clearly has an affinity for the characters and the continuing saga. This one is by far the most personal if that's the right term <more>
when applied to a species other than persons! Opening with the film's best battle scene and perhaps the most superb and vivid of the franchise ; the film stuns us with the realism of apes on horseback and searing violence that rivals any war film. We are immediately drawn in by the thrilling and intimate battle scenes, and the accompanying adrenaline rush. It's a beautiful and heart-pounding opening that will surely satisfy even the most demanding action-oriented fans. This is also when we notice that Michael Giacchino's score as a complementary thing of beauty and not just more over-the-top action film music bravado.The great Andy Serkis returns as Caesar, the leader of the apes, and dare I say, one of the most exciting and dynamic recurring characters in the movie universe. This third film belongs to Caesar and we see his intelligence, personality and skills have evolved in each. His human nemesis this time is Woody Harrelson in Colonel Kurtz psycho-war lord mode. In the years since "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes", a simian virus has wiped out much of the human race and now the last two human factions one led by Harrelson are preparing for a final epic war, while at the same time, all remaining humans are united against apes.Apes simply want to be left alone in the forest, but humans focused on their destruction are forcing the apes to fight. One particular attack causes Caesar to erupt in anger and strive for revenge, providing the foundation for a movie with less action than the previous two, and a more concerted focus on story and character. Some may be disappointed in this. Others like me will find it fascinating.Joining Serkis/Caesar for a third round are Terry Notary as Rocket and Karin Konoval as Maurice orangutan . Also returning is Toby Kebbel as Koba – this time in a manner that really messes with Caesar's mind. Steve Zahn steals his scenes as the comedy relief chimp known only as "bad ape", with Judy Greer as Cornelia, and young Amiah Miller as Nova same name as Linda Harrison in the original . Nova is a human girl who seems to fit much more with the apes than the warmongering humans. Fans of the original will also note Caesar's son is named Cornelius the same as Roddy McDowell's ape in the original . Director Reeves delivers what would be a fitting end to a trilogy, but there is likely to be yet another if fans can appreciate that the series has evolved every bit as much as the apes.
