  • Carving out a new era for The Planet of the Apes with lovable characters and rich visuals, Kingdom doesn't take the crown as best of the franchise but handily justifies its continued reign.

    The new characters just didn't really hit me in the soul like the other ones did... The storyline was solid enough.

    The film’s gorgeously shot and boasts some imaginative world building, but there’s a lot going on, perhaps too much.
