Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes (2024)

Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes: Finally got to see this one and it was still in the theater which I had to myself yesterday.  I wasn't sure where the Planet of the Apes franchise was going but I'm a big fan and was excited to see the new movie.  You can see the trailer here.  This movie is set a few hundred years after the last movie from the franchise (2017).  The movies starts out with ape Noah and his clan.  From there we see conflict with other apes and we get a human who at this point isn't that common.  

I really enjoyed this movie.  I thought the plot made sense and enjoyed the characters.  The trailer had me wondering but I got it watching the movie.  Plenty of mention of the original trilogy's Ceasar and I like how his legacy is used here.  The plot was fairly straightforward but there were enough twists and turns to keep it interesting.  Bottom line I liked it. I liked the characters and I liked the journey they took us on.   The ending sets up the next movie in the franchise really well.  


  1. I enjoyed the Planet of the Apes movies when I was a kid. Also saw the Mark Wahlberg movie. At some point I'll probably sit down and watch all of the new films in a row.
