The latest installment of the Planet of the Apes franchise was a touching, igniting, invigorating, tear jerking, perplexing, enamoring, captivating journey all personified in the misconstrued balance between a race of humans that cannot understand the very creatures that they reflect themselves.
If you could look into the eyes of a being that is so vastly different from you, but still comparatively the same, would you accept them? The delicate balance between the circle of life comes into play in a new, creative way with this installment.
After an epidemic destroys the human race except for one colony of survivors that are genetically immune to the disease, all hope appears to be lost for the humans. Generators are down and after a few years, all human power sources have been diluted.
Humans must trust the very beings that they fear in order to recover the needed resources to survive. Coincidentally, the apes have the same apprehensions.
I won't include any spoilers within this review pertaining to the film. This is one human self discovering jaunt that everyone should embark upon for themselves.
If you've had the opportunity to view the 1970's rendition of this franchise, you will without a doubt marvel at the realism explored within the apes themselves through this film's special effects. The producers truly brought these beings to life and the film lacks no action aspects. The message of the film will draw you in, but the effects will undoubtedly, enthrall you.
We definitely recommend this film and give it 4.5 out of five stars. If you've already viewed the film, be sure to take our poll below!
