Comments: War has broken out and it is apes vs humans. The streets are battlefields.
The Simian Flu or the ALZ-113 Virus is what is making apes smarter. It is making them as intelligent as humans. They want their freedom just as humans do.
The apes here do act like humans, they care about each other, they want to live, and one gorilla wants to take Caesar's place.
Caesar does have a personal appeal. He says little but it means a lot.
The story is slow and it does not explain somethings that should have been. The art does not show off the apes to their best advantage. Well Caesar is not to badly portrayed. You know he is the leader.
War has come to Earth and the humans may no longer be the dominant animal on the planet.
