It's relatable. It's affecting. And it's deeply moving. For a film about a bunch of talking apes, that's a triumph in itself.

War for the Planet of the Apes is exhilarating and melds together an expert level of craft and performance that shores itself up as one of the delights of this Summer

The three films (stand) consistently as a strong trilogy, and in my mind, ... one of the strongest. Often, quality slips with each entry, but (these) get stronger as they go.

November 3, 2018
Prove[s] emphatically that you can make a big FX-driven blockbuster that will entertain crowds but also tell a smart, compelling story full of complex characters and interesting, thoughtful ideas.

November 2, 2018
This series of films hangs entirely on the shoulders of a fully formed digital character. It's a remarkable bet... and resulted in what is pound for pound perhaps the best modern trilogy since the Lord Of the Rings.

As Caesar, Andy Serkis delivers in ways that make the Academy's refusal to acknowledge his work all the more embarrassing.
Full Review | Original Score: A+

[Matt] Reeves' fandom since childhood for the franchise is evident in every frame of his Apes pictures. This is a grim story of loss and hate and revenge, told against the even-grimmer backdrop of the literal end of the human race.

War for the Planet of the Apes does a fantastic job of rebuking toxic masculinity and centering nonverbal communication, but it forgets to lift up women or people of color in its ambitious goals.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.25/5

Whilst War for the Planet of the Apes' title may be somewhat misleading, the film itself is anything but a letdown.

It makes the fall of humanity an engaging spectacle. And now I openly welcome our new ape overlords.

October 29, 2018
There is inelegance here between expression and meaning that is jarring, and makes this a grim watch at times.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The end result isn't quite as effective as Dawn before it, but War delivers the emotional heft to bring the trilogy full circle. Can we give Serkis an Oscar nomination yet?
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
October 10, 2018
As simians and Homo sapiens touch base with their lowest, the Planet of the Apes' prequel series reaches its peak in quality.

A chillingly daring finale that swings through the vines, leaps, and sticks the landing, providing a perfect ending to a perfect trilogy.
