Recently, every evening, Nick, my step-son, asked me when we will watch the Planet of Apes again. He is pretty hooked and, especially this time, I was sharing his enthusiasm. Indeed, at the end of the previous installment, [spoiler] Charlton Heston himself launched a doomsday bomb destroying Earth. Heston thought he managed to put an end to the sequels but the producers obviously outsmarted him.[/... read more

I love how cheesy this seems compared to today's movies, and the fact that the outdated aspects of the movie (giving a pregnant woman alcohol, for example), do not take away any of the enjoyment of this movie, the third in the Planet of the Apes franchise. Cornelius and Zira grow on you through each successive movie, and you want to see them live...

This movie also has a younger Eric... read more

The world is shocked by the appearance of two talking chimpanzees, who arrived mysteriously in a U.S. spacecraft. They become the toast of society; but one man believes them to be a threat to the human race.

“Recently, every evening, Nick, my step-son, asked me when we will watch the Planet of Apes again. He is pretty hooked and, especially this time, I was sharing his enthusiasm. Indeed, at the end of the previous installment, Charlton Heston himself launched a doomsday bomb destroying Earth. Heston thought he managed to put an end to the sequels but the producers obviously outsmarted him. So, how did they do it? Time travel of course! Indeed, if Taylor and Brent managed to go in the future, why not send a few apes back in time? It was a pretty neat idea and something really different from the two previous installments even if you miss the whole Ape civi” read more

"Pelleilyksi heitetyn juonen vakavoituessa loppua kohti alkaa leffakin kiinnostamaan aivan toisella tavalla, muttei silti onnistu tarjoamaan mitään järin uutta, mieleenpainuvaa tai erikoista. Tuttua Apinoiden planeetta huttua siis jälleen."

This movie also has a younger Eric Braedon, as well as Sal Mineo, and Ricardo Montalban. It's not the best movie, nor does much really happen in the whole thing, but it's still good entertainment.” read more

" Interessante. Desta vez, os macacos Zira e Cornelius fazem o caminho inverso feito por Taylor e seus companheiros, no primeiro filme. Esse terceiro filme da franquia original é uma crítica à mídia que explora ao máximo o assunto da moda para logo depois, descartá-lo com a mesma rapidez que havia surgido. Um final tão surpreendente e inesperado quanto o do filme original."

My Movie Diary 2011 (279 movies items)

"8.3 Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter reprise their roles in the 3rd ape movie with a reversal of situation: the apes go to the U.S.A. That means, in all likelihood, it will feel like a Tarzan goes to Manhattan kind of deal for you. The apes go ape. Far from the great tradition of the classic Heston features, “Escape” is a circus of bad cheese acting, they only need to slip on banana peels to complete the picture. And its no accident either, that Ricardo Montalban has a role of a circus owner. "

"7.5 Ei pelkkä turha rahastus jatko-osa vaan aidosti mielenkiintoinen juoni, joka täydentää koko sarjaa erinomaisesti. Alussa melko huoleton elokuva muuttuu koko ajan loppua kohti enemmän ykkösosan kaltaiseksi vakavahenkisemmäksi kritiikiksi, joka toimii. Ykkösosan tasolle tämä ei silti onnistu missään vaiheessa nousemaan, mutta kannattaa ehdottomasti tarkastaa, jos apinoiden planeetat kiinnostavat. Toivottavasti loputkin jatko-osat olisivat vielä samaa tasoa."
