Edwin Starr said it best. “War, huh, Yeah, What is it good for?”
Sometimes war is necessary though. Like when someone wants to wipe out you, your family, and your entire species. When you’ve tried peace, you’ve tried co-existing and someone still wants to destroy your way of life, war is necessary.
That’s what it’s come down to in the 3rd chapter of ‘The War for the Planet of the Apes’. Ceasar (Andy Serkis) has lost all the humans that he’s loved, and apes are only fighting for survival. The humans, led by the Colonel (Woody Harrelson), are fighting to wipe out the apes. If someone was trying to take out my people I would think I would get pretty emotional too.
The bad thing for the humans is that we know how this all ends up. Damn dirty apes.
