Solid ending to the prequel series. Must watch!!

Is this the last of the 'new trinity' of Ape films? It wouldn't be a bad ending though the original went five movies long. There's definitely a grandeur to these films and Andy Sorkis is pretty good to say the least. I like the way they drop little 'tips of the hat' to the previous franchise. Is there a story to tell with their 'newest recruit'? Time - and an appropriate actress - will tell.

Very good film. I liked this one more than the second film in the series.

No spoilers please... It ruins the movie for other people...

Very disappointing. Technically excellent. The apes are amazing as usual and very strong acting from Andy Serkis but the writing is awful and the story was emotionally manipulative. A pretty corny take on Heart of Darkness. Woody Harrelson’s character was horribly written. Major drop in quality from the first two in the series.

This movie compares the Colonel to GOD the FATHER because he tells Caesar something(which I can't tell you because it is a movie spoiler) that is disrespect. Not at all recommended.

My opinion of the remakes of these 70's movies was at first "Not a good idea." But I have watched each one so far and they just get better and better. I actually cried real tears at the end of this one!😭

This Movie Was Really Sad In The End Of It I Was So Sad That Cesaer Had TO Die I Almost Cryed

Well. Why did they use apes to tell an age old story that mean people suck and their demise? Not sure why the Planet of the Apes is such a franchise. Were there any toys in the happy meals? Why did it matter who was in the ape costume? I don’t get it.

No matter how bad this movie is there will be a sequel or prequel or time travel installment to the franchise. This movie would have been greatly improved if the apes wore roller skates and smoked cigars.

The Colonel: All of human history has lead to this moment. The irony is we created you. And nature has been punishing us ever since. This is our last stand. And if we lose... it will be a Planet of Apes.

Many quotes in IMDb including this opening narrative:

Fifteen years ago, a scientific experiment gone wrong gave rise to a species of intelligent apes and destroyed most of humanity with a virus that became known as Simian Flu.
With the dawn of a new ape civilization led by Caesar, the surviving humans struggled to coexist. But fighting finally broke out when a rebel ape, Koba, led a vengeful attack against humans.
The humans sent a distress call to a military base in the North, where all that remained of the U.S. Army was gathered. A ruthless Special Forces Colonel and his hardened battalion were dispatched to exterminate the apes. Evading capture for the last two years, Caesar is now rumoured to be marshalling the fight from a hidden command base in the wood, as the war rages on.
