| A Mighty Winner!
The third installment in the Planet of the Apes reboot series, 'War for the Planet of the Apes' is a terrific film, that is grim & thought-provoking, and bravely pushes the Blockbuster Genre, by offering more soul than gimmicks. With a Sterling, Oscar-worthy Performance by Andy Serkis as Caesar, the leader of the apes, to a Screenplay that is dark & powerful & Deft Direction, this recent box-office & critical smash is among the year's best films!

'War for the Planet of the Apes' Synopsis: After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind.

'War for the Planet of the Apes' is a tale on love, hate, revenge & survival. And in a world where Presidents behave like dictators & discriminate the minorities, this Apes versus Humans spell-binder comes close to the current state of times we live in & questions hate & violence with thundering ferocity.

'War for the Planet of the Apes' is brave enough to remain a grim story on a leader broken & consumed in hate, ready to protect his misunderstood tribe by a sadist & ruthless colonel (Woody Harrelson, in an electrifying performance). Its disturbing & powerful story on Caesar's fight, with a mad-load of violence & thought-provoking confrontations, that are SURE to give your goose-pimples. Its power-packed stuff.

Mark Bomback & Matt Reeves's Screenplay is excellent. The Writing is super-strong & makes for a solid third installment. Reeves's Direction is intense to the core. This is Reeves at his finest, as a writer & director. Michael Seresin's Cinematography captures the carnage, with astonishing results. William Hoy & Stan Salfas's Editing is top-notch. Art & Costume Design are fantastic. Michael Giacchino's Score is enchanting, as always.

Performance-Wise: Andy Serkis needs to be awarded. His return as Caesar in a yet another motion-capture performance, defines emotion. Serkis is simply superb, enacting the bruised & broken hero with gut-wrenching honesty. Has the Academy been sleeping? I mean, how can one not include Serkis in the finest performances of the year? Give him his due, Nominate Serkis for his impeccable work in 'War for the Planet of the Apes', it would only prove to be a rich moment in your history. Second in command is Woody Harrelson, who puts the screen on fire. In one of his scariest roles, the Thespian portrays a villain that's hard to forget. The TREMENDOUS Steve Zahn is extraordinary & adds the much needed relief in the intense proceedings. Karin Konoval, also, is marvelous. Rest lend incredible support.

On the whole, 'War for the Planet of the Apes' is A Mighty Winner! Don't Miss It.
