This Movie Was Really Sad In The End Of It I Was So Sad That Cesaer Had TO Die I Almost Cryed

Well. Why did they use apes to tell an age old story that mean people suck and their demise? Not sure why the Planet of the Apes is such a franchise. Were there any toys in the happy meals? Why did it matter who was in the ape costume? I don’t get it.

No matter how bad this movie is there will be a sequel or prequel or time travel installment to the franchise. This movie would have been greatly improved if the apes wore roller skates and smoked cigars.

A well done movie, very enjoyable. When the first Ape movie came out years ago I avoided it because I thought it would be silly. However my girl friend suggested I watch them and she thought I would enjoy them. So I went back and watched the first, enjoyed, watched the second, was hooked and this final one was just as good as the others.

Pretty good entry to this series. It does get a little dull about 2/3 in, but gets fun again after that. The resolution is a bit lame, but decent watch though if you liked the other ones!

The ‘apes’ delivered superior performances compared to the humans, including the script writers, except for maybe the young orphan girl who brought a measure of warmth into the winter landscape.

Reducing The Colonel, a.k.a Woody Harrelson, to a cookie-cutter religious zealot rendered this finale a poor offering in the franchise. Even his lengthy monologue in which he poured out the mother lode of exposition did not prevent him from presenting as a one-dimensional character. Overall, this film was short on ideas but not on SFX which may be just enough to make this finale watchable.

Dawn was much better. The humor was out of place in a couple scenes. Maybe too many slow moments and slow motion. Ending scene for final battle was a little stupid because it turned out there was a ridiculously easy way to wipe out the fort.

Many quotes in IMDb including this opening narrative:

Fifteen years ago, a scientific experiment gone wrong gave rise to a species of intelligent apes and destroyed most of humanity with a virus that became known as Simian Flu.
With the dawn of a new ape civilization led by Caesar, the surviving humans struggled to coexist. But fighting finally broke out when a rebel ape, Koba, led a vengeful attack against humans.
The humans sent a distress call to a military base in the North, where all that remained of the U.S. Army was gathered. A ruthless Special Forces Colonel and his hardened battalion were dispatched to exterminate the apes. Evading capture for the last two years, Caesar is now rumoured to be marshalling the fight from a hidden command base in the wood, as the war rages on.
