The Colonel: All of human history has lead to this moment. The irony is we created you. And nature has been punishing us ever since. This is our last stand. And if we lose... it will be a Planet of Apes.

Mercy, mercy please!
24 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Halfway into the movie, I wished I could be magically transported into the movie itself as one of the apes... then hopefully be shot and killed so that I could be put out of my misery. The only reason I did not walk out is because I was with my family and I mistakenly thought that they were enjoying the movie. However, as soon as the credits started to roll, my husband announced, "Thank God it's over. That was the worst movie I've ever seen!" All of us agreed. I am so sorry to have wasted that money, but I'm even sorrier about wasting the time that I could have spent doing something else -- ANYTHING ELSE -- with my family. The kicker was when my 11-year-old son sadly concluded that he no longer likes movies. Likewise, my 20-year-old son did not have a kind word to say about it. We've never agreed on anything so strongly before as a family unit. What a shame that we couldn't have bonded over something else.
