War for the Planet of the Apes

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

For every new, dumb Pirates of the Caribbean or Transformers sequel, studios are offering summer blockbusters that actually have reasons to exist. Opening Friday in Bay Area theaters, War for the Planet of the Apes is one of them. Not only smart, dazzling, and entertaining, this sequel also speaks to fears and concerns that are as relevant today as they were in the 1960s, when the series originated. Specifically, War for the Planet of the Apes looks into problems of racism and war, or, more generally, fear of the Other. Remarkably, it effortlessly places viewers in the shoes — or primate feet — of the "Other," encouraging us to see not only their plight, but also the fatal flaws of humans. (More)
