After the previous two parts doing exceptionally well worldwide in the entertainment industry the expectations from this part were even high before the release of the movie. Caeser and his apes found themselves in a huge conflict with an army of humans led by a daunting Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caeser wrestles with his never give up skills in order to avenge his kind. In the end, both colonel and Caeser come face to face in a final battle which will decide the fate of both the species.
Two years after the events of Dawn, Caeser and his clans is at war with a human military known as Alpha-Omega. Caeser and his clan hides in the woods and agree for peace if the humans leave them in solace, but the matter worsens when various apes, including Gorilla red, have joined the Alpha Omega after being annoyed by Caeser’s leadership.
When Caeser comes to know that the human military is led by Colonel McCollough who is very mysterious, he plans to move his clan across the desert. Just the night before their journey, the ape home is attacked and Caeser’s wife and eldest son are killed by the Colonel and his troops, leaving only his youngest son alive. The story continues on these lines and ends with a fierce battle between Caeser and the colonel for the survival of their respective clans.
War For The Planet Of Apes draws a decent $56M opening. In the world of cinema, it is incredibly rare that the sequel of the film overpowers the preceding parts. It combines breathtaking special effects and a powerful, poignant narrative to conclude this rebooted trilogy on the powerful and truly blockbuster note.
I would highly recommend the viewers to go and watch the film in cinemas if they don’t want to miss on the spectacular sound and effects which the movie delivers. With its gripping drama, biblical comparison and a powerful performance from Andy Serkin holds the film strongly and gloriously brings the tale of its protagonist a full circle from where it all began.
Though it is considered to be one of the best films this summer still it is for many mature kids say 11 and above. It’s a spectacular, thrilling time at the movies.
In my view, I feel that the film may have divided certain audiences, as it has completely changed from something it was in 2011’s Rise of the Planet Of Apes, but in order to show progression and to deliver on emotion, I truly think that the makers couldn’t have done a better ending. I won’t over-hype the film but it is my favorite part of the three and for what purpose it has set out to accomplish, it’s a must watch if you go by my word. You can go watch this film with your family or friends.
