I caught it this afternoon with very high expectations having grown up on the originals and having loved this reboot. I think that a lot of folks might be disappointed in this one if they are expecting all-out war, but I thought it was fantastic, every bit as good as the last one and a perfect capper to this trilogy. It's a mash-up of Exodus, Apocalypse Now, and a prison break. I thought it was tense and riveting. There were several gut punches and some very interesting twists. I actually left the theater somewhat emotionally drained, but, as I noted, I'm a big fan and likely more invested than the average bear. I actually got teary-eyed several times. Serkis was wonderful as usual, but Karin Konoval also deserves major kudos for her portrayel of Maurice, who looms large in the story. Woody was suitably unhinged as The Colonel, but, like the villians in Dawn, his motivation and actions make sense. The effects were flawless and the settings give the movie an epic feel. If you enjoyed Rise and Dawn, I would think that you are going to dig this one as well.
