On episode 35 of Film Focus I talk about the latest film in the Planet of the Apes reboot series; War for the Planet of the Apes. Now of all the films I was looking forward to this year including Logan, Guardians 2, Spider-Man and the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok and Star Wars Episode VIII, War for the Planet of the Apes was easily in the top 3.
Back in 2011 Rise of the Planet of the Apes really blew me away with its interesting story, characters, and action, and then Dawn of the Planet of the Apes came out 2014 and completely floored me with the character-driven story, drama, and visual effects. And since the first trailer dropped last year I’ve been beyond hyped to see if this film would deliver the epic third chapter that this trilogy needed. So how does War for the Planet of the Apes fare? Well check out this spoiler-free review to find out.
