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

A riveting and emotional finale to one of the best film trilogies. While it does not rival DOTPOTA in sheer spectacle the themes of redemption, forgiveness, revenge and unity rings true and give the film a texture and urgency many movies this year lacked. And considering the right wing fascist sub text here it is also a movie that is political and current. If only all block busters were this ambitious. 4.5 stars.
