Now the situation is completely in favor of apes, and they are rejoicing the circumstances. Suddenly a changed occur in their life when the apes leader Cesar was captivated by the Human army from North. The human colonel is merciless and is torturing the apes before killing them. The only aim of Mankind is to wipe away the apes and to have only human dominance. Meanwhile, another war breaks between humans. Will Cesar be able to escape from Mankind? Who will Win the War Humans or Apes?

Cast Performance:

Andy Serkis delivers spellbound performance as Cesar. Woody Harrelson gave equally the best performance as Colonel. Steve Zahn’s a bad ape, which is a funny Chimpanzee from Zoo provides the necessary comic to have relief from this Scientific serious drama. Amiah Miller in the role of a mute child, adopted by Maurice belonging to Cesar’s group. Even though she didn’t have a single word to speak her expressions through eyes and face very catchy and impressive.

Technical Aspects:

This is the third directorial debut of Apes Franchise by Matt Reeves, and some of the action sequences are quite tricky and surprising. The  Cinematography by Michael Seresin gave a visual delight on the technical front. The tale has a different outlook, and there are many scenes which grabbed my attention. Especially the scene where Maurice notices the mute child, Nova and adopts her immediately even without a second thought, Can we humans do that.? And music by Michael Giacchino is exactly immersible with the scene and had a great impact for the drama.

Minus Points:

  • Lengthy movie

War for the Planet of the Apes Movie Rating: 3.5/5


Although the film is long, I suggest you watch the flick as it gives us many questions. One thing which the flick points out is that apes have the more mature mindset than Humans. From this statement, I rise a question, Are we humans becoming the worst specimen on earth? The growth of terrorism, sexual violence, and wars are only making us believe yes for the above-given line. Overall, from my War for the planet of the apes review I advice to watch the flick as it gives us a thought provoking questions.
