Ten winters after the Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes, with mankind all but wiped out by the ALZ-113 virus, Caesar (Serkis) and his fellow apes live peacefully in the forest, content they are now alone. However, their idyll is about to be rudely interrupted by an advance party of survivors looking to re-establish their own pocket of civilisation.
A superbly mounted, powerfully performed, if slightly underfed Apes sequel. That Reeves is set to direct Untitled Of The Planet Of The Apes next is cause for much celebration. This guy’s fur real.
