Review: WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES / SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING / 47 METERS DOWN

Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless colonel (Woody Harrelson). After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both of their species and the future of the planet.

Director Matt Reeves explained that introducing the character of "Bad Ape" was meant to start widening the fictional world for future sequels, by establishing that there are other apes across the world beyond Caesar's colony who were mentally uplifted by the Simian Flu he added: "Bad Ape is really...he's critical to this story but he's actually a seed thats planted that sort of says that...that's a widening up of the world.its not just Caesar's apes, there are other apes elsewhere-and those apes haven't had the benefit of Caesar's leadership, and so who knows what they're like,and they certainly wouldn't necessarily have the level of empathy and integrity that he's tried to instill in his family of apes, so future conflicts might not just be human and ape."
