Synopsis


Rise of the Planet of the Apes
The Escapist director Rupert Wyatt takes the helm for this Planet of the Apes prequel centering on genetically engineered chimp Caesar (Andy Serkis), who was created in a San Francisco lab by an ambitious scientist (James Franco), and who uses his powerful intellect to lead an ape uprising against all of humankind. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

War for the Planet of the Apes
In the third installment of the Planet of the Apes prequel series -- which depicts the events that led to the primates taking control of Earth -- simian leader Caesar (played via motion capture by Andy Serkis) is horrified when his family are killed during an attack by humans on his community. Caesar soon plots revenge on the Colonel (Woody Harrelson), the human military leader behind the assault, which threatens to ignite all-out war between the two species. Directed by Matt Reeves. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
A war begins to brew between man and ape in this sequel to the 2011 hit Rise of the Planet of the Apes. It's been ten years since the Simian Flu wiped out most of humanity, and somewhere deep in the woods outside of San Francisco, Caesar (voice and performance capture by Andy Serkis) and his primate companions have established a thriving village built on the principles of peace and community. Shortly after welcoming a baby brother into the family, Caesar's son Blue Eyes (Nick Thurston) is walking through the forest with his friend Ash (Doc Shaw) when they cross paths with a human named Carver (Kirk Acevedo), who impulsively draws his gun and shoots Ash at the first sign of aggression. As it turns out, Carver is part of a human expedition led by Malcolm (Jason Clarke), who, along with the rest of his crew, races to Carver's side just as Caesar and the rest of the apes answer Blue Eyes' desperate call for help. An enraged Caesar drives the humans away after realizing they are no longer a threat, and decides to dispatch a small crew to follow them rather than yield to the pleas of his aggressive advisor Koba (Toby Kebbell) to launch an all-out attack. Instead, he decides to show the apes' strength by amassing outside of the humans' makeshift community at the base of an unfinished tower, making it unmistakably clear that the two species should remain apart. Meanwhile, the point of the human excursion was to get a dormant dam running again in order to power their community, which will soon be thrust into darkness should they fail to take action. Convinced that he could strike a truce with Caesar that would allow the humans to repair the dam, which is located on the apes' land, Malcolm gets permission from human leader Dreyfus (Gary Oldman) to set out on his mission. Incredibly, thanks to the help of his girlfriend Ellie (Keri Russell), his son Alexander (Kodi Smit-McPhee), and a few other key allies, Malcolm succeeds. Still, his truce with the apes is a fragile one, and just when it seems that the primates and humans have learned to coexist in peace, a shocking act of betrayal threatens to spark a war that will determine the dominant species. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I purchased this trilogy on a whim having never seen any of the films. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. They obviously had the trilogy planned out in advance as each movie sets up the events of the next, but at the same time, they can stand on their own as great movies. It's nice that they allowed themselves so much time to develop both the plots and characters, especially Caesar. They accomplished a tremendous feat getting the viewer to care so much for this CGI character. Truly fantastic. Don't judge by the older movies, give this a shot.

    I think that the films of the "Planet Of The Apes" Trilogy were the greatest sci-fi/action films of all-time and they were also my favorite action films of all-time. I have seen and enjoyed these "Planet Of The Apes" films including the original classic "Planet Of The Apes" films several times and I also think that all of the "Planet Of The Apes" films have had a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable action, mystery and suspense including amazing and original storylines.

    I have been a fan of this series of movies since the original movie with Chuck Heston way back in the day. This reboot does the original justice. Man's struggle to survive self imposed end of days conditions. I can say more but it would be a plot spoiler. Good drama and action and not just for the wow factor. More realistic.

    The price was unbeatable for the set of all 3 movies. I already had part one but it was so much cheaper getting this set than buying part 2 and 3 separate. Great action movie with lots of great effects. I must have for all fans of the original and the remake of PLANET OF THE APES.

    Bought this box set because I heard the trilogy was very well done. Ended up watching all three in a day because they were so enticing. The discs were at a good price and I was glad that the digital codes were included for all three as well.

    All three of these movies are phenomenal, particularly the final two! They're gorgeous on Blu-ray and very rewatchable. The CGI ape characters also outshine the humans nearly 100% of the time-amazing.

    The movies was a nice breath of fresh air to fans of the apes franchise, and a nice introduction to new fans of the series. You grow to love the apes as individuals and the movies make you connect with them at a level that connects all living things.

    I loved the first movie so when I saw the set I had to get it. The special effects to make the apes look so real is outstanding. Great story that flows through all the movies leading up to the very original Planet of the Apes story from 1968.
