Gary Oldman, Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke and Keri Russell star in this thrilling next chapter of The Planet of the Apes. It is 2026, and humanity has been pushed to near extinction by a deadly virus. When a group of survivors desperate to find a new source of power travel into the woods near San Francisco, they discover a highly evolved community of intelligent apes led by Caesar (Andy Serkis). The two species form a fragile peace but dissention grows and the groups find themselves hurtling toward all-out war.

I must admit when I saw "Play Anywhere" on the the blu ray packaging, I took that as region free. I was wrong. It's the ultraviolet digital download (expired 2017). Amazon site says region "0" but then it also says it will not play in most North American DVD players. Well it plays fine in my Sony Blu Ray players (abeit the spinning is very noisy in one player for some reason and it's only this particular disc). However this does not guarantee it will play in your North American coded unit.
Love the 3D and the movie itself.
For example, after the humans were told to stay away by Caesar, the engineer decided to go back anyway to talk Caesar into allowing him to activate the dam. But to do so, and despite the very delicate state of affairs, he not only decided to bring his entire family, he brought along that anti-ape lunatic with a bee up his arse as well. I know that the producers wanted to create the next phase of the movie but they could have done it differently.
Logic or, for that matter, content are not usually the primary objective of US movies. Making money for the sake of making money is the order of the day!
The ending of this film sets up a third film, which will hopefully follow. The Blu-rays of both films look and sound very good and can be bought for about $10 CDN now, which is a good price.
The very first film with Charlton Heston will always be a classic, but I think these 2 latest films are the next best of all. Check them out.

'Caesar' and his followers have built their own compound in the forests beyond 'San Francisco' over the
Mankind is in decline they have been ravaged by a pandemic,the cities have all but been laid to waste,
the peace between man and ape survives as long as they stay apart.
After an incident close to the Apes compound and brief meeting between Man and Ape, 'Caesar' who
understands human-kind warns 'Malcolm' (Jason Clarke) and his team to stay away from the forest where
he and his followers live.
There is an element of the Apes that crave war against their once captors, only the logic of their leader
The people living within the city boundary's have become desperate, they have little or no power-source,
in the forest there is a 'dam' which could generate the power they need, but will 'Caesar' permit a human
presence close by.
'Malcom' who had been in the party involved in the earlier incident seeks consultation with 'Caesar' to try
and reach an agreement to allow a small team to try and get the generator running,if an agreement can be
reached there will be no need for war, 'Caesar' cautiously agree's on the understanding that the humans do
not carry weapons.
'Caesar' (Andy Serkis) wants to give mankind a chance to co-exist but knows how frail an agreement with man
can be, he just hopes.
'Koba' (Toby Kebbell) has no trust of humans and takes it upon himself with a few others with similar views to
find a warehouse where the humans have a large stock-pile of weaponry, 'Koba' knows that it is more than
enough to wipe the Apes out if used against them.
Meanwhile back at the Dam 'Caesar' watches over the human teams progress, however because of the action
taken by 'Koba' trust is wearing thin, the prospect of war becomes even closer.
'Koba's' betrayal will change the course of history, can 'Caesar' re-take control before it's too late or has the line
already been crossed.
This is a sprawling and exciting epic that lays the grounding for what is yet to come, the film will draw you in from
the outset, with some terrific action sequences and an underlying will from both 'Caesar' and 'Malcolm' to maintain
the peace between them.
Brilliant and Eye-Popping Special Effects Throughout, a spectacle to behold indeed.

Picking up from the end of Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the opening credits sequence here hits the fast forward button. In a blur, we're shown the Earth and human populace being overtaken by a deadly virus. As the film proper begins, Caesar and his ever evolving troupe of apes have set up a community in the woods while a small pocket of human survivors are holed up nearby in what remains of San Francisco. They're lacking power, food etc and need to turn to Caesar for assistance in the form of an uneasy truce. Can the apes and humans peacefully co-exist? What do you think?
Knowing where it all has to end up eventually brings a sense of inevitability which creates its own air of dread and tension. The fun of these films is in the details, we know where we're going but we're never sure exactly how we'll get there. A slow burn first half gives way to an extended, explosive endgame and it's certainly worth the wait.
The CGI is fantastic of course and these ape characters are exactly that - characters. They live, they breathe, they each have their own individual personalities and great credit must go to Andy Serkis and his crew as always. On the human side - Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Gary Oldman and others more than hold their own, bringing their own heart and weight to proceedings.
I'm coming from a place of bias as a fan of almost all of the films in this series (I'm looking at you Tim Burton) but this comes highly recommended. Top stuff.
Mankind has all but been wiped out by a Virus and only a handful of survivors are left.
This particular group are trying to get to a Hydro-Electric Plant so they can generate electricity. However, they hadn't reckoned on being attacked by Apes led by the redoubtable Caesar. There is an uneasy truce but another Ape (Chimpanzee), hates humans and plots to de-throne Caesar, take his place and kill all the remaining humans. I particularly liked the scene where Caesar's partner gives birth and you see the softer side of him.
A stupendous film and well worth buying.
