  1. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    This epic war fantasy is painted with the dark hues drawn from the suffering and despair of losing loved ones as the menace of extinction becomes real.

  2. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    There is this sequence in the start - reminiscent of this year's Alien: Covenant, as intro and showcase to a lategame opus - the cave invasions by green-laser-waving men, that pulses with sci-fi and vertigo and possibilities (with one of the best and most thrilling tracks Michael Giacchino has done, tribal whistles from the future) that urges to kickstart a film as good as the dark, powerful "Dawn". Slowly [cont.]

    Acabo de salir de la sala de cine. Muy buena película. Los simios viven en el bosque y luchan por sobrevivir. César no quiere la guerra pero sabe que es inevitable. El fantasma de Koba lo atormenta. Decide matar al General por haber asesinado a su esposa y a su hijo. La lucha entre humanos y simios es dura. César logra salvarlos y los lleva a su nuevo hogar. Cornelius su hijo menor, vive, pero César muere al llegar.

  4. Luca Soldati's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    Narrazione con molti alti e bassi. Ritmo non esente da difetti. Buona la violenza e la crudezza di alcune scene. Alcune scelte narrative inverosimili minano l'atmosfera creata. Non male lo scontro fra i due protagonisti, ma il Colonnello è mal sfruttato. La regia ha alcuni guizzi, ma è minata da una narrazione non sempre efficace. La fotografia non è male. Tranne Cesare, personaggi non granché.Colonna sonora ispirata

  5. Huey McEvoy's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    An indisputable paradigm shifter in how cinematic technology perfectly serves the story, up there with 'A Trip to the Moon', 'King Kong', '2001', 'Jurassic Park' etc. The mocap is *breathtaking* - do see it on the biggest screen possible. The words needed to describe Serkis' performance alone have not yet been invented. It's *almost* a masterpiece, were it not for Harrelson's disappointingly shade-free Colonel.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    Neuvième mouture d'une stagnante et percluse saga adaptée du fameux roman de Pierre Boulle, qui s'enfonce et s'enlise dans des marécages d'ineptie et de fatuité avec ses insipides séquences d'une lourdeur faramineuse teintée de ridicule et de mièvrerie. www.cinefiches.com

  7. 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.

  8. DenoResandono's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    The third entry in the prequel of PLANET OF THE APES franchise. WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES maybe not as complex as RISE or DAWN. But this movie still offered you some excitements. The true power of this movie is its character development. We see an old Caesar. He grew older & wiser. Thanks to Andy Serkis' mo-cap performance. I think he deserves an Oscar. I loved how this movie paid homage to the original version.

  9. rksw's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    My god. I held my tears till my throat hurt and look at the visual!!!!!!

  10. Viginti_tres's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    Treating the most ludicrous premise of the summer with the most sincerity shouldn't work, but the relentless class and dignity that Reeves imbues these dramas with is always surprising. The visuals are relied on to tell the story, since the characters can't or don't talk, in an almost PIXAR-ian way, and look beautiful besides. It's just a shame that I don't actually care about this world.

  11. Faizal Agusdin's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

  12. Addy K.'s rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    "Caesar! What is happening?" Beat. Caesar explains. "Look! What are they doing?" Beat. He instantly clarifies. It's the type of indicative storytelling that almost ruins the new APES. Compared to the superior DAWN, this is a shaggy-dog story with an absurd storyline (Woody Harrelson lays it all out to comical effect). Reeves directs from his own script, yet cannot prevail. Serkis' mo-cap performance is unbelievable.

  13. Domiziana's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    One of my favorite blockbuster

  14. Diderot's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    The weakest of the three, because it's a little too somber--especially that embarrassing sequence when Harrelson talks about his son.

  15. William R Clark's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    3.5, almost a 4, but I only want to talk about the good things. Courageous use of closeups in this - not just because it lays bare the marvelous effects, but also because an expressive closeup is a lost art even in American indies. Sound mix is dynamic, full of unexpected surges. This movie has a big, perhaps a bit too serious, heart, and I felt fully converted to the cause at the end.

  16. Eddie Rinctoya's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

  17. SpacePirate's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    Boring at times, over the top at others, and even some very corny/cheesy moments missing from the first 2. A weak sequel. Watch as this series limps to the finish line. A shame. Had potential. Already forgotten. 2 stars

  21. JoãoMoura's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    Such sentimental. All hail CESAR!

  22. Andhika Eka Buana's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    The 2nd film this summer that has a misdirection of being called a 'war' film (the 1st being DUNKIRK). Heck, this third entry is even more meditative and quiet than RISE and DAWN. That time of the year again where the question "Can Andy Serkis won an Oscar for a motion capture performance?" arise.

  23. Chris_Parker's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    An uncompromisingly bleak meditation on what it means to be a sentient being. Inspired by classics from the 10 commandments to Apocalypse Now, this genre masterpiece focusses on dark themes such as cultural purification and attempted genocide and depicts how Cesar remarkably portrayed by Serkis, leads his people out of the madness of 2 groups of men slaughtering one another. but nature has no sympathy for the victors

  24. Federico Di Folco's rating of the film War for the Planet of the Apes

    Mamma mia,ne facessero altri 40 perché ogni volta è più bello del precedente. Reeves mostra cosa si può fare con 100 milioni di dollari (non solo robba per tredicenne),scrive una storia di vendetta sporca e feroce e immerge il tutto in un' atmosfera western che rimanda ai grandi classici. Finalmente c'è un antagonista di livello e dopo due ore e venti ne vorresti ancora e ancora....lunga vita a Cesare.
