I rated War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) 6/10 #IMDb

It stands up as a good planet of the apes movie.

Though the scope of the movie at its outset is limited: some renegade general sees he needs to destroy the apes, it turns into an existential battle.

The political parallels are perhaps a bit unsubtle at times but put those aside and you have a reasonable revenge thriller that transforms into a biblical tale.

Some of the dialog is a bit weak but all the characters do their job in a mainly male-driven plot.

Some of the destruction is surprisingly epic and accompanied by some inhuman acts of cruelty.

Worth a watch if the planet of the apes is of any interest to you at all.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
