Storyline

A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth's dominant species.

Trivia

In addition to the apes, visual effects company Weta Digital created other digital animals, such as a herd of deer, a grizzly bear, and CG doubles of the live horses. The deer were created using key-frame animation and the digital crowd enhancement software MASSIVE, the bear through key-frame animation, and the horses with a mixture of key-frame animation and motion capture.

Dreary let down
22 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the previous film and after seeing the high review scored shelled out the exorbitant cost to go to the cinema.

None of the characters inspire any real interest.

The story is boring and predictable. With stereotype bad people/bad apes versus a few good men/apes.

I always like a good, post apocalyptic film, unfortunately this was not it! Very disappointed, it's not desperately awful just very mediocre.

I often regret the exorbitant cost of going to the cinema and certainly did this time. Wish I had waited till it came out on TV.

My advice is don't waste your money wait till it comes out on TV or streaming service.
