Storyline Heading
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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Drama - This is the third and final installment of this sci-fi drama trilogy revival, and as in the second film, the only returning actors are those who provide the motion capture for the ape characters, led by Andy Serkis. The tone is as serious and gravely downbeat as the others, but there is some comic relief in a new character played by Steve Zahn. Woody Harrelson is the only noteworthy actor playing a human, and while his screen time is limited, his villainous turn will please his fans. Some disturbing violence against apes and humans and generally grim subject matter make the film not for using kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good This is a vital, original, and emotionally potent chapter to one of the longest-running movie series out there. It will easily be one of the summer of 2017's best films and, at the end of the year, it will likely find a space on many respectable Top 10 lists.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good While it may be a few beats too long, especially in its multiple endings, it's a shockingly memorable movie, the kind that gets better as you dissect and discuss how much it does right after the lights have gone up. ...it's wildly entertaining. It has comedic beats...

USA Today Full Review
Very Good ...dazzling and gripping... All of the apes are so realistic, riding horses and escaping soldiers in snowy environments, that the audience quickly forgets they're simians... The satisfying and heart-wrenching climax is a last reminder that Caesar's new adventure is one of this summer's best.

NY Post Full Review
Good The sophisticated characters and wrenching emotions created with motion-capture technology so eclipse those rubber ape masks in the originals that it seems wrong to even group them in the same franchise.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 91 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: Two loved it and one rated it just "average."
TEENS: Nearly all the males loved "War for the Planet of the Apes." Only two of the five ladies loved it. The others felt it was only an "average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable).
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Six of the seven males all loved it, as did both of the ladies.
ADULTS: A full 60% of the males and females loved this movie. Another 18% of the males and 25% of the females enjoyed it very much, rating it "above average." Unfortunately, just over 20% of the males and nearly 15% of the females rated it just "average," which is a bit low but not a bad review. It indicates a movie that's enjoyable but nothing special or memorable.
