Having seen the original 70s time lapsed episodes, this is a great and emotionally charged version that kept me drawn in throughout the film.
I enjoyed this film and thought some moments were handled really well, like adding humanity and reason to what some of the humans are doing and why, and the inevitable ending. I would love another trilogy following on from this set in the future long after the events of this trilogy starting with the return of the spaceship.
"War for the Planet of the Apes" is a thrilling, climactic chapter to the "Planet of the Apes "saga.The evolution of the apes seems to have come a long way from the situation in the very first production.That was when the apes ruled over a dispersed humanity and where their society was caught in a complex duopoly between the wisdom of the philosophers and pacifists (mainly chimpanzees) - with their learning and retention of a working culture, and the more warlike members of their species (mainly gorillas - somewhat stereo-typically)) whose main attributes were their prowess in riding battle-ready horses as they collected human specimens and their handling of weapons of minor destruction.
The film endeavours to show an ape community that possesses sophistication and community togetherness based on a common heritage and possible future. On the other hand, it reveals a disparate human existence that is still possessed of the desire to dominate and conduct war - even amongst itself. The film has pathos - primarily amongst the ape community, and pathology - distinctly in the humans. In the latter, there appears to be elements of "Apocalypse Now" residing in the main character "The Colonel" (played by Woody Harrelson). However, Harrelson never quite manages the heights attained by Marlon Brando and his characterization of "Colonel Kurtz".
Once again, as in others of this series, the film's focus is on the character of Caesar, played by the ever reliable Andy Serkis. Caesar presides over unimaginable personal and community losses but resolves to avenge his kind. This pits him against the Colonel for a final showdown that will determine the future of the planet. Without revealing too much, the finale of the film reminds me of the biblical story of Moses and his feat of bringing his people out of Egypt and his running battles with the Egyptians. The ending, however, must remain to be seen by those viewing the film.
With excellent acting and costumes, as well as very acceptable sound and apt scenery, this film has a sense of the epic. It is a satisfying addition, perhaps a final one, to "The Planet of the Apes" franchise.
I liked this film. It had a worthwhile plot to back up the plentiful violence and aggression associated with war. Interesting subplots and a couple of new, rather endearing characters are introduced to lighten what could have been an overly oppressive feel.
Thought provoking sentiments and ironies abound. An enjoyable watch.
