Review: ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’

If Matt Reeves’ War for the Planet of the Apes turns out to be the reported final installment in the prequel-slash-reboot franchise, the series will be going out on its highest note. A thrilling, bold, and intelligent sort of summer blockbuster, Reeves’ second film in the franchise takes huge emotional and narrative risks with material that could have been played for camp value, but is instead embraced as a serious, thoughtful, conflicted reflection on human nature. War for the Planet of the Apes isn’t only the best film of its trilogy, but also an unlikely and refreshing candidate for one of the best films of the year.
