Why do these movies always have to be so depressing?! And this one was just depressing on a whole other level too... for a moment it seemed like they might opt for comedy, but then it picked up again. The darkness. The death and... well, bits of comedy even there but... it feels like realism at it's truest. Monumental. The ironies of life and death. The old Planet of The Apes movies don't have shit on this one after all.
I can't help feel like they could've skipped the odd monkey. The one in the jacket. But then again he's a complement to the human girl... the one who's just monkeying around. And there's so much message in this movie I can't even tell it. CGI is on point. Story-telling took a few dives after the first encounter, and it jumps around until they're all back in chains again, but when it's time for the final revolution: they're back in their essence like never before!
You'll see when you reach those final scenes. I can't even fight the CGI any longer, at least not in a movie like this. It works. It's awesome. This movie really didn't get the spotlight it should've, and we humans: we need to take care of ourselves a bit better from here on out.
rated 5/5: friggin awesome
