Ashley Kethley's Review.

Planet of the apes is the third installment in the planet of the apes trilogy. This movie had a more serious tone than the other two films and they did leave it open for more movies.

This movie follows Cesar - the leader of the apes and the protagonist in the film, he goes on a revenge mission to avenge his family that was slain by the colonial (Woody Harrelson).

Cesar is accompanied by some friends and along the road they meet a human girl who is mute. As they go further and further into there journey the apes discover human bodies and realize that people are actually becoming more and more like apes, loosing the ability to speak and are being killed to prevent the virus from spreading.

Cesar ends up being captured by the colonial and is taken to the border of CA where they have been imprisoning apes and forcing them to build a wall. There are other humans who plan on attacking them and the wall is supposed to help protect them. These two groups of people are the last humans on earth and in the end they end up destroying themselves. Don't worry though - the apes get free before that happens.

Some things to take away - I found myself rooting for the apes. I like animals more than people and I always side with the oppressed. Woody Harrelson was an awesome villain, you find yourself wanting to just crawl through the screen and slap him. He's a fantastic actor and I pretty much love anything he does. Andy Serkis as Cesar was incredible, you really have to see for yourself how he completely transforms. I enjoyed this movie and if you liked the other films you'll enjoy this one as well.
