Despite a deeply compelling story and some incredible characters, War fails to live up to its title in the final act. That's not to say it isn't good because it is, it's just not the war we were promised. The final battle, although action packed is short lived and isn't even a fight for the planet. I think the problem is with the fate of the Colonel, it's definitely poetic but it's not what you'd expect of a story like this. Because of this I felt robbed of what could have been an epic battle between man and ape, maybe not for the planet but certainly survival.
War for the Planet of the Apes is a brilliant conclusion to the reboot trilogy. It ends in such a way that closes out the trilogy and at the same time leaves things open. Yes the final battle is a little disappointing but the story as a whole is very compelling. Watching these two species fight is even more interesting when you realise it's the humans that are the animals.
