The Planet of the Apes reboot trilogy has been a critical darling ever since the series started back in 2011.

The latest movie, War for the Planet of the Apes, is doing really well when it comes to critical reviews. It could be one of the best reviewed games this Summer blockbuster season.

As of time of writing, the current rating for War for the Planet of the Apes on Rotten Tomatoes is a very impressive 95 percent. The average score for the film is a respectable 8.2/10 which means reviews should be around 4/5 stars.

As of right now, 42 fresh reviews have been counted with only 2 negative ones. It's possible the rating could go down slightly, but it should be over 90 percent when more reviews are counted. The critical consensus can be seen below.

War for the Planet of the Apes combines breathtaking special effects and a powerful, poignant narrative to conclude this rebooted trilogy on a powerful -- and truly blockbuster -- note.

Many reviewers say it's an epic conclusion to one of the best trilogies in recent memory. The trilogy is actually more commercially and critically successful compared to the original series of films.

Most people only know about the 1968 original movie. Not many people talk about the four other original movies that were made in the '70s.

It's been a rough time at the Box Office this Summer for movies that are not animated or superhero films. War for the Planet of the Apes could buck that trend as the last film made well over $700 million worldwide back in 2014.

It will be interesting to see if 20th Century Fox wants to do more films in the future, although it sounds like this one might be the last one (for now).
