War of the Planet of the Apes is directed by Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of The Apes, 10 Cloverfield Lane) and written by Mark Bomback (Screen writer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and it stars Andy Serkis as Caesar, Karin Konoval as Maurice and Woody Harrelson as Colonel
The movie is an absolute masterpiece and deserves not only an Oscar for Best Picture, Andy Serkis seriously should be given an Oscar for his absolutely unbelievable performance as Caesar the Ape. What a performance, what a movie, what a story, what an experience!
This movie has all the ingredients of a Perfect Movie:
- The effects were far to realistic
- The acting was world class
- The storyline was captivating
- The characterization was out of the world
- The suspense kept us at the edge of the seat
- And the manner in which each part of the story was unfolded was completely mind boggling and captivating.
And do you know the most shocking thing about this movie?
You will not only love the hero of the movie….. you will actually love the villain!
I do not want to give you spoilers…. but this is the part that will shock you! Seriously!
If you ask me – there was absolutely nothing and I mean NOTHING that I could recommend to make this movie better. Even if I tried to break my head and think – I would have been able to find a single drawback to this movie.
Seriously it was that good.
There were moments in the movie you would laugh, there were moments you would cry, there were moments where you got angry, there were moments where you would just feel a sense of connection like never before.
So now who is Andy Serkis and why does he deserve an Oscar?
Remember Gollum in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001 to 2003)?
King Kong (2005)?
Yes…that is him!
Andy Serkis is one of those rare individuals who comes once in a lifetime and does something that no one else has been able to before. We have Michael Jackson for Pop, we have Muhammed Ali for Boxing, we have Conor McGregor for MMA and now you have Andy Serkis for Digital Motion Capture.
Seriously Andy Serkis is one person who can truly bend reality and make you believe that an Ape can be a Human being. You would be completely glued to the movie screen watching Andy Serkis play the role of Caesar.
This man not only deserves our respect – he deserves an Oscar.
Personally, I do not think there is any other person who could have done what Andy Serkis has done.
Very rarely do we get a movie that gets better and better and better as the sequels come out – War for the Planet of the Apes goes far beyond what could have possibly been done to make a movie even better.
This is seriously a movie worth watching – not just once but again and again and again.
Brilliant Masterpiece in Cinematic Achievement.
The only thing missing is to give this movie and Andy Serkis an Oscar.
