War For the Planet of the Apes  is the third installment in the Planet of the Apes reboot series. It follows the confrontation between the apes, led by Caesar, and the humans for control of Earth. The movie greatly depicts Caesar internal conflict for his desire to maintain peace and the instinct to defend his family from Colonel and the soldiers endless attacks. As the movie unfolds, the roles seem to reverse where the apes appear more human than the human themselves. Overall, the film is both classic and contemporary with the choice of weapons used in the film and takes the audience through an array of emotions that by the time it gets to the end, you’re guaranteed to have a swelling in your throat.

I really enjoyed the movie. I think this one is the best out of all three,” said an attendee. Skyy from Black Ink Crew had an emotional reaction to the film. “The movie is straight real but the ending, like my heart is hurting.

If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, get them now because War for the Planet of the Apes is a must see. The movie will be in theatres Friday, July 14th. In the meantime, check out the photos below from the event.
