Emotionally Resonating yet Satisfying
War for the planet of the apes is the third installment to the trilogy, the previous two films have been amazing. Rise of the planet of the apes was pretty underrated for what it delivered, didn't got the enough recognition it deserved nonetheless it was a great watch. Dawn of the planet of the apes was a fantastic sequel it was pretty dark in its tone, however the story telling was on point and the characters were memorable. The first ape film which is rise was about ceaser character about his origin or where he belonged, the second ape film which was dawn is about ceaser leading the pack of apes, where humanity has gotten extinct due to their own hunger of power of science and technology, and third film focuses on ceaser's journey where he is dealing with the toughest time of his life, which will lead him either to his death or salvation. War for the planet of the apes is an excellent third installment to what has become one of the greatest trilogy of all time, this movie is emotionally powerful. In this movie ceaser is the most broken, the most vulnerable and is also filled with lot of hatred, the guilt of losing the people he couldn't protect, his journey has been explored so perfectly where you see a great character development in him. Matt reeves has returned to direct the third installment, he did a great job with Dawn and has done a fabulous job with war. This is one of the best visual story telling movie I've seen, the CGI of the apes has just gotten better over the years, in war the level of details in these characters is just fantastic, they look very photo realistic, the CGI has been done by some very talented people who deserves a pat on their shoulders, the cinematography is also brilliant as some of those shots look very beautiful. Andy serkis has definitely given an Oscar worthy performance here, in previous two movies he was amazing, but Andy serkis has never been this good in any movie that he has ever worked in, his character is just so broken so deep, his performance really makes you feel sad about him and even the supporting cast gave very satisfying performance. In this movie we get introduced to two new characters that is mute girl child (her name is not mentioned because that's a spoiler) and bad ape. The little girl in this movie who was mute for the entire film had to relied on her expressions to give a good performance, and she was great in this movie some of her moments with ceaser and Maurice were adorable, in this very dark story telling movie some of these sweet moments were a great addition, and the character of bad ape could have been a problem as his character is comedic, but he was handled very well, and some of his funny scenes were a nice touch of humour and really added something to the movie. However, this movie did a false marketing, making people believe that the movie will be action packed buff, with its title war for the planet of the apes, many people that it would be action packed extravaganza, but it wasn't. This movie does have some of the actions scenes, but most of them were just in the beginning of the film, after that the film a deal dramatic story visaul story telling movie, it didn't hinder my experience as the story building and the character development of this movie was so great that at some levels this movie even exceeded my expectations, but that's isn't the case with everyone, as some people I know were disappointed due to lack of war type action scenes. All and all I think war for the planet of the apes is a beautiful film and really closes the trilogy in the best way possible
