drama and special effects
15 July 2017 | by A.k. SteeleSee all my reviews

Drama and special effects with an incoherent story line and caricatures instead of characters. This could have been a good movie but has gone beyond credibility to the point of absurdity. Where are the technical adviser? Did anyone think to consult one soldier about protocol? Especially after watching the originals, this does not even compare with Battle for the Planet of the Apes.

Summation: White man pure evil, ape and stupid human good.
