This movie = no lazy writing in this one. 9.5 out of 10 Before you even get to the "apes" aspect. They went very deep between the ears with Caesar and the Colonel. "The struggles are real" I This was the best of the three movies by far. Movie 2 was sorta bad. Could have skipped making it. Movie 1 left something to be desired. Usually, I leave a movie and think "I would have done this or that differently"... not the case here. Also... This could have been a stand alone movie.
