I am a biased lover of 'Planet of the Apes'... Take these words with that it mind!
This is without doubt, the best 'trilogy' of the 21st Century!
From the opening scene, leading from a recap of past films in an imaginative and flowing manner, you are led back into this beloved new world along side friend or foe?! The ensuing drama that you are then taken along with, is breathtaking, shocking, brutal and Brave!
Andy Serkis and the other Actors who have mastered this unbelievable technology are magnificent, the Visuals are stunning, the shocks are unbearable, gripping and wonderfully woven into the faultless story, that grabs you, holds you and then breaks you over and over again!
Naivety aside, I understand a few issues may arise, such as 'Bad Ape', the Music being a little obvious, the Little girls reactions to a couple of dramatic scenes, however none are big enough to spoil in any way a quite remarkable end to a series that has become a huge hit. Ignore those reviews that typically focus on such minor detail.
So, go back and watch the Rise and Dawn of the Apes if you haven't already done so; Grab snacks and drinks, Book the film in 3D, "Shut off from the outside world" as 'VUE' states and witness a Masterpiece.
