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I love how cheesy this seems compared to today's movies, and the fact that the outdated aspects of the movie (giving a pregnant woman alcohol, for example), do not take away any of the enjoyment of this movie, the third in the Planet of the Apes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.

" It may not be logic that the Apes would manage to take a shuttle and travel back in time, but at least it manage to make sense of making a sequel after the ending of film 2. The apes become the heroes and we have a lot more of needed humor after the way too serious second one. The ending is another downbeat ending in the Apes-saga that makes sense but leave a lump in the throat."

The future kind of sucks. (355 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: Apes from the Planet of the Apes, arrive on Earth, and end being experimented on, they also discover the horror that is "disco." Year it takes place: 1973"
