This movie was so good people say its boring but i was not bored for even a second a realy well done film good charectrers and CGI go see it


Beautifully written and directed, touched the emotions.


The characters are what really stand out in this movie. Any Serkis' portrayal of Caesar is amazing on so many levels, especially when you look at how he's more human than most of the human characters, and the Colonel is equally amazing for the opposite reason: his lack of humanity. Although this is an action movie, the action is but the smallest tier in a multilayered plot, which was clearly the main focus of the movie. A plot with complexity that can (almost) rival the Lord of the Rings. And don't even get me started on the family and leadership style drama in this movie. It could make a grown man cry. Not me though. As you can probably tell, I love this movie. The quality is something that can not be described, but only witnessed, and I suggest you go witness this.Also don't show this to your kids unless they have a relatively high tolerance for things in movies. Like when they say, "thematic elements," they mean it. There are also some relatively bloody wounds and disturbing phycological elements. But don't take it from me. Go read a parents guide before ever showing this to your kids.


Good lord this was slow. I do appreciate "slow" films, foreign stuff, art stuff, character stuff, etc, but this, at its best, is trying to be some inaccessible allegory that I had to struggle to comprehend, or -- it's what it appears to be -- a movie that lost its message through muddled writing and misguided re-writes or heavy handed script doctoring and myopic producing. It just CRAWLS. Aimlessly. This is the third of an ever-worsening series of reboots. The first one was worthy. The second was fun but empty. This third? I'm so glad I followed my instincts and refused to pay a theater ticket to see it. The message or theme is simple, and repeated -- humans are mean spirited savages, apes are noble savages. Yeah, we got it the first time. It's also trying to be a poorly executed morality play on "us vs them," on "natives vs immigrants," and tribalism based on race. There's even a "Wall" featured. In ten years, will any viewer remember what "the wall" was about? Yeah yeah, it's an ever-important message, but it requires better execution and exposition in this day and age. What's next -- GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER, with the groom-to-be the human, and his fiance and parents apes?
