#SundayReviews: "War for the Planet of the Apes"


Moving ever forward to the eventual remake of Planet of the Apes (not the Marky Mark version), the latest prequel entry, War for the Planet of the Apes, should be when humans and apes finally square off for supremacy of the planet right?

Starring Andy Serkis versus Woody Harrelson, let's get this war finished!

From Google:

"Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both of their species and the future of the planet."




Well, in short, there is no war. This was a well made, well crafted, and well acted but very poorly titled movie.

I enjoyed this movie even though it was anti-climatic and kind of boring honestly. It was more a study of which specie was more "human" in how they treated their own and their enemies. It certainly wasn't worth the 3D premium price.

Overall it's WATCHABLE.

QBF Rating: 3.5/5

PS: This prequel seemed to have more Easter Eggs shouting out to the original series than previous.

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
