War for the Planet of the Apes

This movie lives up to, and even exceeds, the standards set by the two previous Apes movies. Picking up a couple of years after the second movie, Caesar and his fellow apes are being hunted by soldiers, and his wife and son are killed. Caesar’s inner Koba surfaces as he seeks to avenge their deaths. The digital effects, emotion and intensity are even better than what we have come to expect from the franchise. But I was also pleasantly surprised by the introduction of a new ape who provides some comic relief! Definitely a movie worth watching, even if you haven’t seen the first two Apes movies (the movie starts with a super quick summary to help establish history). And no spoilers here, but the ending!!!
