For their own selfish reasons, humans cut down the forests and homes of animals and always tried to capture them, but what happens when animals enter humans’ homes. When humans become helpless before the dominance of animals. ‘Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes’, the fourth installment of Hollywood’s hit franchise ‘Planet of the Apes Reboot’, shows an image of this on screen, which is quite scary.

Story of ‘Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes’

The film is the sequel to 2017’s ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’, where the apes are living in small groups several generations after the death of their leader Caesar (Andy Serkis). In one such enclave, Noah (Owen Teague) lives with his family and love Tsuna (Lydia Peckham). Nova is a brave, values-loving and kind-hearted ape, but one day because of him, Proximus (Kevin Durand), a power-hungry masked ape who calls himself Caesar’s successor, attacks Nova’s house. He burns down the entire area, kills his father Coro (Neil Sandilands) and takes the remaining baboons hostage.

Nova promises his father that he will bring his squad back and from here his journey begins. On this journey, he meets a human May (Freya Allen) and an intelligent orangutan Raka (Peter Macon). While Raka tells her about Caesar’s true lesson, May, who initially distrusts Nova, later leads him to her unit. May tells him that due to a virus created by humans, while the monkeys became strong and intelligent, the humans became speechless and weak. May wants to give back the voice of her people. Now do Nova and May succeed in their objective or not? We will know after watching this film.

‘Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes’ Movie Review

Directed by Wes Ball, this film seeks answers to some questions, such as, can humans and animals trust each other? Can they live together? However, the film loses in terms of screenplay. The script is very flat.

This two and a half hour long film also seems cumbersome in the middle. The theory of monkeys becoming smart and humans becoming helpless due to the virus seems strange. However, the film is visually quite attractive. The combination of cinematography and visual effects by Gyula Pados is brilliant.

Owen Teague does a great job as Nova. Meanwhile, Peter Macon wins hearts as Raka. Despite this, the story lacks ups and downs and conflict and overall the film remains average.

Why watch– If you are a fan of ‘Planet of Apes’ franchise then you can watch this film.
