Dan's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

My attention started to lag because it seemed as if its plot had been reduced to a simple revenge tale but then I thought "Matt Reeves made a snowy spaghetti Western with apes as a stand-in for Indians. Fuck." It was genuinely thrilling and then became ridiculous. I took Woody Harrelson's performance as proof that this was completely intentional.
