Simian saga's supper!

It was not 6 years ago, when everybody raked the raging rants racing through movie-goers society.  The question queuing up on every ones mind-"after the debacle of its destiny in 2001 and before, was another ape franchise appealing?".

The answer was obvious.'An absolute no!'

With usual ubiquitous plethora, the understanding died down with a paltry few grazing the big screen; some seeking approval and the others listening to their mirth and mind.

Joining the ranks was yours truly. Then in 2011 came the astounding affirmation "the new ape movie is moving", while the epiphany was not far behind "the new ape series will be appreciable".

Well mind you! Directors Rupert Wyatt and Matt Reeves leaves you barely brooding and cussing.

With people loving and caring the so-called adorable and admirable bunch of meandering monkeys. Who are much more than a band of baying banana fenders. Or as the production team puts it, 'a step-straying past mankind.

Advanced genetics and a cure creating a curse being the theme from the onset. The humans and chimps, don't go hand-in-hand. As a result, their dread turns on each other in a politically aggravated environment. Economically strifed for and eroded in its search.

Until the lab rat philosophy and dermal ailments are given a shove. The cognitive creations give rise to a messiah cum leader Ceaser(Andy Serikis) who topples the giant globe of consciousness breeding down their generations neck. However a diabolical colonel(Woody Harrelson) may become a last hurdle in the horizon towards freedom.

The total ambiance of the film has been further darkened from before and it correlates in a very ambiguous way. Still, the flair is somewhat put-off from making this movie and the franchise a newest addition in the gripping group of flicks. The rise and dawn of Andy Serkis as a completely matured majority reverberates in a massive way. As he drives home of the advantage of his experience in motion shadowing.

Delivering a performance worth remembering. He is helped by actors Karin Konoval(Maurice) and Terry Notary(Rocket). The gorillas, chimps, orangutans and the others stomp their superiority in a very grand fashion, even if it means the world falling off balance on their shoulders. Sound by director Michael Giacchino soars in that cause throughout its premise till now.

Newest additions Amiah Miller(Nova) and Steve Zahn(Bad ape) makes you forget the blemishes a little. Seeing their brand of aesthetics and sarcasm respectively, you are bound to be let off a tad.

It helms on a breathtaking cinematography from before and doesn't stead nimbly on the acceleration as well.

I would say try and enjoy the last supper of these folks, and you will!
