War for the Planet of the Apes ★★★★★

Simply put, it's "Planet of the Apes" meets 'Apocalypse Now'! The fact that this sequel matches the dramatic brilliance & intensity of 'Dawn' is an achievement alone. Its very clear just how insanely jaw dropping the visual effects have become, along with stunning cinematography. But this strikingly real, impressively lean and profound film needs to be appauded more for its bold storytelling and performances; with Andy Serkis leading the pack so spectacularly to this near-perfect end to the now full-fledged "Caesar Trilogy". Amazing! - 9.5/10 (A)
