Battle for the Planet of the Apes – Review

And so the original series comes to a close. While I’ve had very little to say in these reviews I’ve enjoyed finally getting to see this iconic series.

It’s a fitting end to the series and even manages to bring in the mutants from the second film (minus the psychic powers) for the titular battle bringing everything full circle. That said the film is just ok.

I think the problem with the film is in the name, it’s just one battle for the planet of the apes and it happens at the end of the film. The rest of the film is a slow build up to that battle which does contain some decent scenes with Caesar and his group but then it cuts back to the gorillas or the mutants talking about the battle they’re going to have.

While the film is alright I have a feeling the newer films do more with this concept. But before we get to them there’s a Tim Burton film I need to watch.
