“War for the Planet of the Apes” is officially the box office champ, during a weekend that demands a close look.
My 13 year old and I saw it over the weekend. My verdict: pretty good for a movie about intelligent apes. My favorite character was the naked ape who had to wear clothes to keep warm and was the comic relief. I also liked (spoiler alert) the big avalanche and mysterious physics that wiped out the humans yet spared the apes. Given that Ceasar (spoiler!) dies in the end, it's all rather Mosaic. I think the original better though.
