This movie surprised me. It was better than I expected.
The movie opens 10 years after the end of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Apes are living in the woods outisde of San Fransico. There are people still in San Franciso. People go into the woods and meet apes. Tragic results come because some apes and humans hate the other race.
The effects are good. The acting is pretty good (I thought Jason Clarke was good) and the motion capture used for Cesar was excellent. Andy Serkis deserves credit for his acting, not just his motion caption work. His voice work is good too. I thought it was surprisingly sad at times.
I didn’t expect much, even after the good reviews but this was pretty good. I didn’t see Rise but I was able to jump into the movie. The movie is at 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.
