    Ok, I really wanna know, what the hell was everyone else watching? Seriously, everyone is saying this movie doesn't have a lot action and that War was a misleading title because there's not a lot of that in here, but when I watched the movie I saw tons of action and war stuff, so seriously, what movie did all of you watch?

    Very good movie but a little bit overrated

    Bad ape is one of the most memorable and adorable characters in film. Steve nailed this role and left a lasting impression on us. We left the theater unable to stop talking about him. In a dark movie the comedy bits were well done. If you haven't seen this movie I highly recommend it. It is very well made.

    I like the fact nobody noticed Jeremy gave the whole trilogy a awesometacular

    I know this is going to be a very late comment. But, Jeremy, I'm assuming THE WAR part of this movie was the conflict within Caesar, not so much a war war kind of thing.

  • Luke M

    Sadly, this movie was completely misunderstood and underrated. No one seems to get that the war is internal. It's Caesar's war with himself and his own rage.

  • Connor Raabe
    Connor Raabe Year ago +1

    Easily the best movie of Matt Reeves career

  • Joshua Saragih
    Joshua Saragih Year ago

    War is the right word I think, it's not only outside war with gun and bomb but also inside war, colonel lost the war since he killed his son, this movie is about Caesar's war.

  • Svetoslav Petkov
    Svetoslav Petkov Year ago

    Awful movie. It's at the level of 3th class action thriller. I can't believe Jeremy is naming it awesome, it's SHITTACULAR!

    _Rise_ was a prison drama.
    _Dawn_ was a political drama.
    _War_ is a war drama.

    Very good movie.

  • chrisellersagangsta

    I thought this movie was gonna be the fight for power between man and apes showing how the apes started ruling the world instead it's just a bunch of pointless bullshit and the ending is stupid as shit

  • Ian Thomas
    Ian Thomas Year ago

    Fucking Christ was this movie stupid. I got so fucking annoyed at all the plot holes, and cliches, and all the brainless dumbass sheeps below me watching it without thinking.

  • Jose Maldonado
    Jose Maldonado Year ago

    Why did the army at the end charge in with infantry when it wasent needed? They literally could have taken everyone out with only the helicopters. Also, did no one think firing missiles at a mountain would'nt cause an avalanche. And how the did ceaser go all the way to the land at the end with a wound and not die earlier, how did no one notice? He could've been saved.

    • Jose Maldonado
      Jose Maldonado Year ago

      The humans dying off in that avalanche was really stupid. Also, how did no one in the camp notice all the apes leaving, is everyone asleep? To muxh plot convience for my taste.

  • JohnQuincySmith1
    JohnQuincySmith1 Year ago

    When I walked out of the movie, I thought it was okay and maybe as good as Wonder Woman earlier that year. Now, I am thinking that this film deserves Best Picture, Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson deserves oscar statuettes, and deserves to be called the best film coming out of this decade.

    • Metal Head
      Metal Head Year ago

      It definitely doesn't deserve to be best film... if this is the best movie that has come out of this decade we are all in trouble. I didn't think the movie was shit but to call it the best movie of the decade is way off base imo

      they threw this movie together quickly while making the 2nd film just to sell tickets without making a conclusion to the story.... thats why there was no war and the plot was stupid

  • A ctionMS
    A ctionMS Year ago

    The movie had heart. Every character has his resons and motivations. The character development was on point, wich is incredibly hard to do when you already had 2 movies spent with Caesar, but they still handled it brilliantly.And the acting... man, they successfully passed the uncanny valley and got straight to the summit of relatable. Amazing movie. In a time of lifeless action blockbusters it was exactly what I missed.

    Every comment section for a wftpota review is just as bad if not worse than Chris stuckmann's force awakens review.

    • President Donald Trump
      President Donald Trump Year ago

      that's because they got paid off to not trash to ridiculous plot and money play to milk the franchise

    This movie suuuucked. What a disappointing film to end the trilogy on. Misleading name too, there wasn't even a war

    • President Donald Trump
      President Donald Trump Year ago +2

      yeah it totally sucked because they decided to milk the series rather than give a conclusion. they're already planning the next movie so dont expect any real conclusion for like 6 more films.

    I'm sixty years old. I haven't found any reviews by these young punks reviewing movies that are worth a damn..... .....until now.
    Congratulations. You don't give away the plot. You present this review with intelligence up the ying-yang. Good work.
    As for the comments. I almost hate to read them. There's always some idiot who gives away a critical part of the movie. Like the $#$%ing ending. And this is a reflection on the younger generation. When I was a kid giving away the end of a movie or book was one of those things you just didn't do. It was considered one of the most inconsiderate things you could do.
    Unfortunately, rude seems to be the standard behavior with kids today. Like the "new rude" that is those Audio Terrorists in their "boomer cars". Who have single handedly destroyed the traditional peace and quiet and quality of life of whole neighborhoods. These people are thugs and social predators with about as much morals as any other child molesting, woman raping social predator.
    And I won't go into what's happening in our colleges; Jew haters, traitors, communists, socialists, Islamic terrorist front groups, anarchists, more thugs tearing at our values, beliefs, traditions and history.
    You want to see an example of these bottom feeding scum? I'll post a letter down below. Check out the video Pioneer Disturb.

      I haven't lived in America in years and I have to say, I almost forgot how great it is to be away from that black/brown trash culture. Maybe it's white trash culture as well, but I've never known any white trash since they live out of the way and keep to themselves.

      Next film already being planned to start 2nd act trilogy trying to copy star wars for big $$$, but hey might be a great saga in the end and they can still redeem it by making this trilogy just about Caesar and act 1

    • President Donald Trump
      President Donald Trump Year ago

      They're paid to give A+++ reviews because 20th Century FOX sacrificed this movie in order to set up a 3 trilogy saga payday. It's obvious this plot was throw together on set of part 2 to avoid a conclusion.

  • Daniel DeMayo
    Daniel DeMayo Year ago +2

    this is a joke right? the costumes from the originals still look way better than this cgi shit....how is anyone support to relate to characters that aren't even real? its like watching a cartoon.....i just can't buy it....

    • Daniel DeMayo
      Daniel DeMayo Year ago

      they were never supposed to! it was supposed to be silly. its about us not the apes....it was a way for us to see into our own silly culture but as an outsider....if it was real, like in the new movies, it wouldn't work right.

      1. The girl looked like she was 8, maybe 9 years old
      2. The ape was being nice
      If someone was being nice to you and they died and you were 8 years old, would you be sad? Of course, you would. Because your a kid who doesn't know any better.

    From the time that I saw the first one on the big screen. I was in awestruck at how amazing it was, and giving Caesar a life with James Franco's character was something that I greatly admired about the first one. He realized later however that he was destined for greater things, and Koba being the one primate that couldn't just let his hatred go to be free with his other ape brothers and sisters. I have loved every movie thus far -- and while I have yet to see this newest one -- I can only expect great things.

    Caesar is ape Moses. He frees is apes of slavery and takes them to the promised land (lake tahoe or wherever they were). SPOILERS! HE dies right after seeing the promised land, just like Moses. The avalanche even drowns the humans like the red sea drowned Pharaoh's tribe.

    One...Of...The...Best..Trilogy I ever had the pleasure of enjoying. From the originals to the rebut (not the 2001 movie). This was the most heart warming satisfying trilogy I had ever watch, I can not put into words the sadness and the emotional connection with Caesar's character. From Rise of the planet of the apes to Dawn of the planet of the apes and then War for the planet of the apes. No series like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, comes even close to my expectation that planet of the apes as delivered. I will truly miss this epic journey from the first time I have seen it. I hope that what ever comes next will be just as exciting and as gratifying as the trilogy was. I have never experienced a movie like War for the planet of the apes in my life.

    Some idiots were "whispering" throughout the whole movie and laughing at their private conversation during serious/dramatic points. And to top it off they were criticizing the movie for being "over the top"(can y'all believe it, a science fiction movie being outlandish and ridiculous) and acting as if they were the most sophisticated of critics. Might go for another viewing since those asshats annoyed the shit out of me the whole time, great movie though.

    In what way can u say dawn came before rising?? Makes 0 sense, first of all rising was released first, and secondly dawn is in a later time line. You got me confused Jeremy. 0:28

    Well, the humans shouldn't think that humanity shall cease to exist as the Pacific is completely unaffected - way to go Oceania, this is why it's marvellous being away from every1else! And don't forget those in Antarctica. Or those little islands like Pitcairn Island.
    Even tho Oz is already the best country in the world, we will most certainly be the best in the world now! Followed by NZ
