Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes REVIEW – Not Royal Enough

Nothing is better than an action-packed blockbuster that is entertaining and the Planet of the Apes reboot trilogy has become one of the most well-respected movies of this kind in recent times. Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is an independent sequel to the trilogy, and is the very first installment of the own trilogy, too. However, the new entry isn’t quite as captivating or logically structured as one might like, however there are sufficient good points that it is worth a time to watch and inspire anticipation for the next sequels.

It is set a few years post-2017’s War for the Planet of the Apes, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes is about an intelligent ape called Noa (Owen Teague) who is in search of his family when his home is destroyed and his entire clan is removed. While on the quest Noa is introduced to an orangutan named Raka (Peter Macon) as well as a woman (Freya Allan) which turns out to be superior and smarter than the apes they initially thought.

People who want to watch this movie are likely, anticipating the visuals. In this regard, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes will satisfy you. The film is a pleasure to the eye with the fun camerawork gorgeous cinematography, stunning as well as impressive CG animation. All of this is apparent from the opening scene all by itself. Noa and his friends soaring throughout the forest and climbing up trees looking for eggs of eagles.

Unfortunately, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes’ characters are a bit flat as well as scenes that could have had a dramatic impact end up simply being there, and don’t have an emotional impact on the viewer. They may appear real however, their relationships seem undeveloped, and their motives do not seem to be well defined. They end up becoming just what they are required by the screenplay to be. As a result, they appear less fleshed out characters, and more of a facilitator to the story.

The narrative of the film isn’t as compelling as the visuals as well, and with a running time of 2 1/2 minutes, its pace feels unbalanced to be engaging and enjoyable all the way through. Certain scenes seem as if they could have been cut or modified, and those thrilling scenes can end up being a bit bitter to be watching.

Though they’re fun to watch however, they’re far from exciting, and the script frequently feels as if it’s just a couple of levels over what’s needed for keeping viewers interested. However, the pace picks up after the third stage, which will be the movie at its most streamlined and interesting. The final part of the movie balances the unbalanced initial and second act, that were either slow or boring.

However, Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes ultimately still offers scenes in which its plot and the world it tells are brought to life although they occur in sporadic fashion, or for the time being, at least until its conclusion. It’s an unsteady beginning to an upcoming trilogy, but it has enough substance that it is worth watching and keep the fans interested at observing where this brand novel’s story will go.
