REVIEW

Overall, I found this movie to be extremely well made, and it features truly phenomenal CG work on the ape characters. I noted some odd plot holes/story choices that don't necessarily ruin the movie but are a bit more glaring when the rest of the film is so good (I noticed this to be the case with the first two movies in the trilogy as well, which I watched the week before viewing this one). I personally believe it to be the best movie of the trilogy actually, and worth the watch after you've seen the first two. It blends really well as an overall story between all three movies. 

Any minor complaints are not enough to keep me from giving it a 5/5 score and a recommended watch.
