The character Luca is an adult gorilla that should weigh in the region of 3 to 400 lb and is seen in much of the film riding a horse, often at the gallop. A horse carrying this kind of weight would not be able to walk easily, certainly not gallop. See more »
Where is the promised WAR? Why is the movie so slow?
If you've not seen War of the Planet of Apes, here's a Warning: THERE IS NO WAR IN THE MOVIE AT ALL!
What exist are just skirmishes between humans and the imprisoned apes who were trying to escape.
In fact, it is a FLOP movie! Only 15 people were watching the show.
The first 75% of the movie is very, very slow and the movie is 30 minutes too long (actual length is 2hr 20 mins). This is because the story-writer hopelessly failed to think of ways to add Thrill and a real War but, instead, made the plot move at a snails' pace just to elongate the movie time.
In fact, this film could easily have finished in 1 hr and 30 minutes. Not a second more.
The movie ends in an "unconvincing" manner: One military faction is eliminated by another military group. And this group is eliminated by a roaring Avalanche. This helps the apes to escape to the dessert they were planning to relocate on.
NOTE: The Avalanche was created because the story-writer could not think of a way for the apes to attack and defeat the military faction. How Convenient! LOL!
The only great thing about this movie is the CGI which makes the apes look 100% realistic. The Avalanche too looks realistic. The visuals and cinematography is great.
WPA is an extremely "unconvincing" end to a trilogy whose first 2 episodes are just Moving & Thrilling which touched your heart and mind. They made you feel for each of the characters.
I feel like giving TIGHT SLAPS across the faces of Writers Matt Reeves and Mark Bomback, just as I felt like giving the same to Roland Emmerich for Independence Day 2.
