New Planet of the Apes is ‘brilliant cinema’
WAR for the Planet of the Apes is brilliant pop culture cinema: brooding, emotive, intelligent and intense.
The 140-minute feature is a triumphant marriage of state-of-the-art effects and an unwaveringly grim tone.
The film continues the events in Rise and its excellent follow-up, to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
War for Planet of the Apes is a rare example of a Hollywood blockbuster that engages while making you think and feel.
As dark and as cynical of a film it often feels, there is some surprising hope that has been baked into its creator’s vision.
Of all the films this year, War for The Planet of the Apes is the most human.
