What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that War for the Planet of the Apes, which is part of the long-running sci-fi/action movie series, is the third movie focusing on intelligent ape leader Caesar (Andy Serkis). It's heavy on fantasy violence, with guns and shooting, arrows, missiles, and explosions. Some bloody wounds are shown, though there's not much gore overall. Apes are imprisoned, hung on crosses, whipped, and forced to work. Characters die, and one character commits suicide off screen. Language is mild, with sparing use of "goddamn" and "Jesus Christ." The movie is very smart and subtly discusses issues of how fear can lead to problems like slavery and war. But Caesar isn't exactly a role model, since he chooses to seek revenge (though he does pay a price). Overall the movie is a great combination of exciting and thought provoking, worth enjoying as well as discussing.
