In the third Planet of the apes movie under the direction of director Matt Reeves is starring again to play for Andy Serkis. According to critics, a realistic film about the fine line between man and ape having the characteristics of a bluckbuster, but sometimes seems to be on claptrap.

NRC – Four stars

“The extraordinary realistic primates from the film are the result of motion capture (mo-cap). Thereby movements of the actors, including Andy Serkis, via sensors is recorded and digital a chimpanzee, gorilla or orangutan animated. (…) The monkey becomes man, the man is a beast. War for the Planet of the Apes is just like the previous parts are a smart, perfectly-made blockbuster. (…) What distinguishes man from animal? With the soortisme of the colonel is short shrift: it seems even that the short-sighted, bestial man his own demise, or orchestrating. And so, Caesar, Messiah his people to the Promised Land lead. The future belongs to the monkey. Or is he the new man?”

Ruthless monkeys fight for freedom in trailer War for the Planet of the Apes

Volkskrant – Two stars

“How cleverly made, also, the clumsy claptrap is just hilarious. Watch apenkoppen who whisper their about their war trauma’s discuss: these Apes lacks content.(…) Technically is, thus, also these Apes excellent. Content succumbs to the film after a particularly long and quiet run-up, in which Caesar and his associates as war refugees seeking a new home, under its own weight. (…) The struggles, the way in which the adventure from the previous films is replaced by its deadly serious oorlogswaanzin full of rude claptrap. How cleverly made, look at sad apenkoppen who whisper their about their war trauma’s discuss at a given moment downright hilarious, in the War for the Planet of the Apes.”

AD – Four stars

The after – and the advantage of the new version of Planet of the Apes is that in this chapter of the sage are very many references to other movies (and the Bible). That generates on the one hand, the lachlust on, but on the other hand, it is pleasant to the quotes to recognize. (…) All the way fur makes Woody Harrelson, who as a crazy, bald colonel the monkeys as slaves used to be a giant wall against a invasion build. The comparison with Marlon Brando from “Apocalypse Now” is evident. In a few scenes, even the graffititekst ‘Ape-ocalypse Now’ in an underground corridor chalked. (…) Those who practice such winks can appreciate will surely be fun to experience. This episode is even darker than the previous films. But the message remains the same: actually, monkeys are much better earthlings than people.
