War For The Planet Of The Apes

The Planet Of The Apes tril­ogy may very well be one of the best trilo­gies out there.

It doesn’t have any ma­jor mis­step in all three films. Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes (2011) set up the origin of pro­tag­o­nist Cae­sar with both heart and smarts. Not to men­tion that awe­some ac­tion se­quence on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) strikes that bal­ance again while ex­plor­ing con­flicts among the apes. The film also fea­tures an army of apes on horse­back, which is cool and chilling all at the same time. In my opin­ion, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes is the best of the three films.

Men’s cru­elty and ar­ro­gance are the cause for its down­fall in this fi­nal film which delves fur­ther into Cae­sar’s jour­ney as the leader of a new kind of apes. Ku­dos to re­turn­ing di­rec­tor Matt Reeves for eas­ily ral­ly­ing the au­di­ence to root for the apes and feel aghast at how in­hu­man hu­mans are.

It’s worth re­peat­ing: Andy Serkis truly de­serves recog­ni­tion for bring­ing Cae­sar’s to life with the help of tech­nol­ogy. Give the man the ac­co­lades he de­serves al­ready.
