Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Finney was a survivor of the Simian Flu Pandemic. He worked closely with former police officer and city mayor Dreyfus whilst living in the ruins of the once great city of San Francisco. When the Ape Colony attacked San Francisco lead by the corrupt ape Koba, Finney participated in the battle alongside Dreyfus and many other soldiers. By halfway through the battle, only him, Dreyfus and Werner were still alive. Werner had sent a radio message to a distant military base up north, but in the meantime, the survivors had to fend for themselves.
Dreyfus and Finney placed bombs all over the Ape-infested tower, hoping to kill all of the apes by blowing up the tower. When Malcolm appeared and threatened the three, Finney reached for his gun but Malcolm stopped him. Finney was surprised and frightened when Dreyfus threatened to activate the bombs, stating that he was saving the human race. Dreyfus activated the bombs, killing him, Werner and Finney in the explosion, while Malcolm managed to take cover.
