War of the Planet of the Apes – QuickViews

July 26, 2017 // in QuickView - Micro Reviews by David Deverett

First came Rise, then came Dawn and now comes War! The latest installment in the Apes franchise.

Set a year after the events of the last film, War for the Planet of the Apes finds Caesar happy with his own kind. But an event will set him off on an unlikely adventure in ways you’ve never imagined.

While there aren’t a lot of A Listers in the film, Andy Serkis once again brings Caesar to life through amazing performance capture technology. Woody Harrelson plays The Colonel. Though his role is short, his live action performance has some powerful moments.

Like Toy Story, Back to the Future, Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit, this Planet of the Apes trilogy stands strong with top franchises thanks to great direction and storytelling by Rupert.

Wyatt and Matt Reeves. The character development, along with stunning visuals delivers loads excitement for this summer’s blockbuster!

Rating: 4/5
