War for the Planet of the Apes

I was excited about watching the last part of the Planet of the Apes Trilogy.  It is not my usual type of movie but it's a really layered story with some surprising twists that keep you on the edge of your seat!

Torn between the conflict between humans and apes this movie make you feel nearly every emotion!  Although not as full of action as previous instalments it nevertheless blew me away with outstanding motion capture and it's hard to believe the apes are CGI at times.

This movie steers more away from a full blown physical war as the title may suggest but really focuses more on the characters emotional battles. Even if you haven't seen the first two parts of the trilogy it's most definitely worth a watch!
