Jeremy of We Got This Covered wrote, "I really enjoyed the film, mostly due to Andy Serkis‘ powerful work as Caesar and WETA’s impressive technology, combined the two make for one hell of a team. Serkis provides the heavy emotions and strong character work easily worthy of an Oscar and WETA provides a new field to capture the performance like never before. Director Rupert Wyatt deserves some praise for being able to catch all of this on camera and making an Apes story worth telling and worth revamping a dead franchise. Buy this Blu-Ray and don’t look back. It’s worth every single penny."
