Before you plan to watch the movie, explore some reviews that may help you in deciding whether to watch it or not!


War for the Planet of the Apes is a brilliant, beautiful, breathtaking blockbuster filled with grand performances and gripping emotional storytelling.


War for the Planet of the Apes is an excellent closing act to this rebooted trilogy, but also one that does enough world-building that the series can potentially continue from here – and it’s a rare case where, after three movies, we’re left wanting more.

The Telegraph

Director Matt Reeves’ icily engrossing new chapter modulates between revenge western and historical epic via Vietnam meltdown movie. In one scene, the words ‘Ape-pocalypse Now’ are actually scrawled on a tunnel wall, just in case the parallels weren’t already conspicuous enough.

The Guardian

War for the Planet of the Apes has its own sense of purpose; it does not get distracted with tricksy or self-aware Statue of Liberty moments, either one of their own or variations on the original, and of course, this is partly because of the franchise’s prequel status. But it is also clearly a larger decision to frame the movies with clarity and directness, without huge cosmic ironies. It’s an engrossing, forthright adventure.
