This is it people. This is the last one of this epic story about the hero ape we all know and love, Caesar. His final act to save the apes from a war that Koba started. This film felt a bitter-sweet just as when I went to see ‘Logan‘.
In the beginning we get to see a group of military men approaching a camp guarded by apes. Shortly after they start shooting but man loses and gets captured, but there is something we haven’t seen before – apes helping man. Turns out they are refugee apes who helped Koba. So now they are helping man, thinking the humans will take care of them but in fact, they have been given ridiculous names and being ridiculed.
After an ambush that humans did at the apes secret hideout, Caesar’s two closest gets killed, he decides it’s time to flee but he will go elsewhere, to look for the man who killed the two apes. Caesar turned into the one thing he swore he never become; Koba. Hate is flowing through him and he won’t let go.
What you will see in this film is something truly amazing. We never seen Caesar this determined of anything. We also get to see something different, something that will make you go ‘HUH’. I don’t want to say too much without ruining the film, but the virus that killed the humans before have now mutated and turning them different. Some say they can’t communicate but they can, by learning sign language.
If you are a massive fan of this series I’d say you should see this film. It gives a certain closer to the franchise.
