Saturday, April 21, 7-9:20 p.m.  (2017) Monkey business turns deadly serious in this climactic installment of the rebooted franchise based on the work of French science-fiction author Pierre Boulle (1912-1994) and directed by Matt Reeves. An epic battle is under way between the super-sentient simians and what’s left of the human race after a devastating epidemic. When the erudite ape leader (Andy Serkis) suffers a personal tragedy, he puts aside his peace-loving ways to seek revenge on the leader (Woody Harrelson) of the human army. Accompanying him on his journey are a trusted orangutan adviser (Karin Konoval), a mute human girl (Amiah Miller) and a clownish ape (Steve Zahn). The film’s spiritual messages are mixed; while the apes espouse Christian values of peace, love and family, there’s an anti-Christian theme embodied by the evil human leader who wears a cross around his neck, displays one in his quarters and gleefully announces that he is waging a “holy war.” Frequent stylized violence, two uses of profanity, and a subtle anti-Christian message. (A-III — adults) (PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned) HBO (cable)
