When people enter the forest, they come in contact with Caesar’s troop. Caesar is surprised to see the humans and orders them to stay away from the forest. He also asks Koba, his trusted aide to check on the movements of the humans. However, in need of electricity, the leader of the city decides to fight against the apes to capture the dam but Jason advises him to solve the matter amicably. Jason goes to the forest to justify the need to Caesar. Caesar compromises and asks them to hand over the weapons before starting the repair work.
Koba is still skeptical about the humans and keeps monitoring every move. At one point, a hidden gun is found and an enraged Caesar orders the humans to vacate the forest immediately. The humans help Caesar’s wife recover from an illness and thereby gets an extension to stay one more day. Koba thinks Caesar has aligned with the humans and retaliates. What happens to Caesar and the humans is the rest of the story.
The movie portrays the beauty of motion capture technology. The fight sequences are magnificent on the screen. Be it the city or the woods, the visuals are so illustrative. On the whole, the movie is enjoyable even though it is a bit lengthy.
