This handsome blockbuster harks back to the days of the Hollywood Western – The fourth chapter in the reboot series sees the apes battle a mad chimpanzee – and the result is surprisingly marvellous.

Director Wes Ball breathes new life into the global, epic franchise set several generations in the future following Caesar’s reign, in which apes are the dominant species living harmoniously and humans have been reduced to living in the shadows. As a new tyrannical ape leader builds his empire, one young ape undertakes a harrowing journey that will cause him to question all that he has known about the past and to make choices that will define a future for apes and humans alike.

Fans of the franchise should find much to enjoy in this very solid new instalment, which points the way forward to a potential new recalibration of the human-ape balance.
