Serkis' performance is what gives the film its humanity - we actually care about these computer generated apes, because Serkis and the rest of the cast imbue them with such soulful realism.

The focussed nature of its vision is impressive but as the film marches, the slightness of its story moves from deliberate precision to repetitiveness.

War for the Planet of the Apes is an extremely satisfying conclusion to one of the best trilogies that has come out in recent years.

One of my favorite films so far this summer.

Director Matt Reeves and his team should be very proud of what they have accomplished with this film.

A thundering end to a powerful trilogy.

War for the Planet of the Apes firmly cements this franchise's status as the smartest, most thoughtful blockbuster action series going.
January 30, 2019
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.

War for the Planet of the Apes is the biblical epic for our time...

An epic conclusion to an epic trilogy that fully cements Serkis as the best motion capture performer for now and forever.

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.

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.

[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.

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.
