Since I really enjoyed the 2 previous installments in this franchise, I was quite eager to check this one as well. Well, to be honest, even though I did like this flick, I thought it was still a slight step back from the previous movie. The main thing with this movie was that, even though some of the scenes were really strong, the sum of these scenes was however never really great. Furthermore, in my opinion, it didn’t provide anything really new this time around. For example, what was the point of this mute girl? What did she really add to this story? In my opinion, nothing much as she was just another attempt to show that the apes are so nice and in fact much more humane than the humans fighting them but it has been done before in this franchise and, by now, I really got the point. At least, I really liked this new character ‘Bad Ape’ who gave a new dimension to the whole ape concept concerning their origins and their possible evolution. And, of course, Cesar remains such a fascinating character and this franchise keeps displaying some of the best use of CGI I have ever seen. Anyway, to conclude, even though it was maybe not a masterpiece, it was still a solid blockbuster and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
