[8.00/10] War for the Planet of the Apes [3D] (2017)

War for the Planet of the Apes [3D] (2017)

Quick Review: Technically superior and more emotionally affecting than the last two, yet slower, less thrilling, and not as action-packed, "WftPotA" is more of a battle rather than a war, but that barely takes away from its tensity. Visually impeccable, somber in tone, crafted with thought, heart, and precision, and yet again driven by Serkis' powerhouse performance as Caesar, this is a grand, biblically-inspired finale that manifests one of the slickest effects ever.

It was slower, but so powerful. And draining! I left the theater emotionally and physically drained.

It was powerful, indeed, but for a film having 'war' in its title, it simply wasn't epic enough for me. I thought both Rise and Dawn were stronger, plus I hated the score - it didn't fit the tone of the movie at all. Not to mention the lack of Koba let it down a bit.
