After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.Written by

Honestly, i can't understand how people give a score of 1/10.
One user said that "the mass cinematographic audience is every day, every time, worse". I totally agree with that.
This movie is much better than the previous 2. In fact, this movie should be used as "foot" to develop true sequels of the same quality as this, and even better.
Rarely nowadays you can see a movie that is entertaining from the beginning to the end and with all the condiments you could imagine of a great movie. This movie reaches all those levels. And if you do not like it, I honestly could not understand why.
It is moving, has action, has good CGI, good rhythm ... and all that works cohesively to fit in to a very good argument.
What more can I say.
Only those who can truly appreciate this film, forgetting their prequels, only appreciating this ... will understand.
