Editorial Mentor Mr.Stan Salfas's Remarkable Editing!

I enjoyed this film and found quite familiar with the taste of editing style. This film is originally a job of Mr.Stan Salfas, ACE! His editing is strictly based on storytelling methodology of Robert McKee.

His beautiful cuts in this film are appeared in the sequence in which Caesar's family killed by the Colonel. The close ups between Caesar and the Colonel are well managed in the most tragic moment.

On the other hands, it is when Caesar was suddenly shot after the death of the Colonel in silence.

Caesar is a typical oppressed nation's leader, and the Colonel is a classical imperialist army officer. Mr.Salfas's reverse cutting reveals this core conflict.

What I appreciate is that US films reveal the evilness of imperial acts taken by its politicians. Self-criticism is done by filmmaking. Moreover, it successfully turned into the blockbuster entertainment.

Individualism and anti-imperialism attitude are quite strong, and other sub characters need more intelligence. Caesar and the Colonel are too big. I prefer more anti-imperialism, and more collectivism.

Fortune is not religiously decided but it cannot individually be controlled. What we can do is to do our best efforts under difficulties. At least, the apes expressed this thought.

Too many 1 star ratings....somethings up

Sometimes, when I read reviews about movies on IMDb, I see patterns in the writing. Similar text, similar structuring and similar indignant shouting. Read enough of them and you see that quite often there is an underlying reason why the reviews are marking a film so low. Be it political or religious. Very rarely is it actually about the quality of the film. More often it is about a personal issue that the reviewer has - and so he vents his anger in the only way that's he knows how - a screaming one star rating and a list of reasons why the film is the worst he has ever seen. Makes you wonder what kind of a strange person would do that.

However, if you read past all the silly 1 star ratings you often get to the truth. And the truth as far as this film is concerned is that it is a cracker. It draws you in like none of the other ape movies - it's pacing is superb, the visual effect stunning.

I would suggest that you ignore the ranting 1 star reviews and take them for what's they are - a few individuals with multiple accounts and strange views on the world.

everyone who gave this film a 1* rating?

Seriously needs to reevaluate the criteria by which they review films. Why? Because giving this film 1/10 says, "I am ignorant of quality film making." Descriptions like slow and boring just don't cut it! Opinions like this are an act of ultimate laziness - the inability to mentally invest in the passive experience of a film. An inability to invest in a well made film that has something to say no less.

Everyone has the right to an opinion - but when a person abandons merit before their eyes, and quality film making is overlooked by choice? That is simply, unfortunate. I can continue to admonish those without taste, but what good is that?

War for the Planet of the Apes isn't a good movie - it's a Great movie!!! I thought part one was above average, part two was surprisingly good - but this movie? Its a borderline classic!

In a nutshell, War for the Planet of the Apes is a struggle for survival between Caesar's group of sentient apes (gorillas, orangutans), and a derelict group of soldiers led by a broken/crazed leader. This fight begins as open warfare but moves to very close quarter survival between captors and prisoners. There is a lot of heavy, dramatic sequences - and I would say this movie compromises entertainment for meaningful content. Normally I am very critical of this type of film, but not this time! Everything serves the characters and story - and in doing so becomes a project that far exceeds the sum of its parts. Yes this movie has death, suffering and plight - and it also has heroism, empathy and displays the strength of unity.

The effects are astonishing - and immediately allow the viewer to slip into the world in a believable way. It is possible that this movie is 5 years ahead of its time. It may be a while before another film achieves this level of drama, all while being a heavily effect driven experience.

Apparently this movie requires an active viewer. A person actually has to show up, absorb the content of a film that will not pander to selfish, "give me action" needs. More science fiction should be this brave and literate. I love movies that ask interesting questions and can bring you on an emotional adventure. It is surprising to me that the third film in this trilogy would improve so much on the previous two films - good movies in their own right.

Way more I could talk up: great soundtrack! The music both blends in and adds to the drama/action - the best kind of soundtracking - beautiful camera work in interesting locations, and several unique characters, many of whom never utter a word of dialog! This movie is full of great character building, and all the big moments really land where they should.

For me, best movie of the 2017 summer - maybe the year!

All the 1* reviews at IMDb are a mystery... audience approval for this movie isn't this low. Very odd, anyways for those who care, critics got this one right - 9/10
