Sandro Tavares’s review published on Letterboxd :
The CGI is very well done don't have doubts about that. But the movie.. It's so much It... it's screaming "Look how i look so apetastic!". The story is predictable, with some plot holes, and it's not well balanced. It's a typical blockbuster movie: Visually appealing, story disappointing.
And there's the other problem, this didn't feel like a ape uprising at all, it wasn't scary and the testing on animals subject wasn't well implemented. Seriously? A massive group of apes kills people, destroys a corporation, breaks a zoo, spreads panic in the city, block and invade one of the most charismatic and important bridge in the world... And all the government send is an helicopter and some police cars? If this was realistic, the Apes could never stand a chance.
