War for the Planet of the Apes – Movie Review

Official Synopsis:

After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind.

Review Summary:

War for the Planet of the Apes is a stunning masterpiece. It’s brutal, bleak and authentically moving.

The film features the best motion capture work I’ve ever seen. Not one scene feels out of place, not even a line of dialogue. There is only one exposition scene in this summer blockbuster. That is the rarest of rarities. Matt Reeves has crafted a beautiful finale to a spectacular trilogy.
