War for the Planet of the Apes (2017, dir. Matt Reeves)

Caesar comes up against a military leader determined to wipe apes from the planet. Downbeat but impressive third and final part of the trilogy; a more introspective movie than its predecessors but stirring nevertheless.

Another opinion? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s review.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014, dir. Matt Reeves)

Ten years after the events of Rise, apes and humans come into contact with each other. Superior monkey military parable fun, with hawks and doves in human and ape camps alike, arguing for armageddon and peace respectively. Inevitably, though, war erupts.
