Viewing Notes

This movie is so damn good. I dunno why I put off revisiting for so long. Maybe because it’s so emotional. I really love when Caesar takes control of the ape compound by first releasing Buck. Everything that follows is excellent. Andy Serkis should’ve won an award for his performance. Also nice to see San Francisco get used prominently.
