Hollywood seems to think that a sequel (or any movie for that matter) with digital animation is a slam dunk. This one is an air ball.
Nothing new here; affectionate humans, cute baby ape, sinister adults, apes revolt, ending is rather laughable. This repetitive plot has zero imagination.
Based on the action at the end, the ending makes one wonder....Oh, I get it.... a SEQUEL. This movie (regardless of the hype) is a total waste of time.
