My only really big complaint is that I really wished there were more fleshed out human characters. Dawn, in comparison, had this great dichotomy between Apes and Humans, and it feels like War is Apes vs the Colonel (along with some other humans, that get no development or screentime).
I saw that as intentional if you chart human versus ape characters across the trilogy. Rise was weighted towards humans. Dawn struck a balance between the two. War is weighted towards the apes.
That shot of Caesar looking at the troops before the flood, I thought it was interesting how they were all wearing masks and faceless.
