Movie Reviews

Old School Reviews - 8/10 by John A. Nesbit This second sequel serves as little more than a light appetizer with a memorable and poignant ending.
Sci-Fi Movie Page - 8/10 by James O'Ehley Regarded by some as the best of the Planet of the Apes sequels, maybe even on a par with the 1968 Charlton Heston original itself, this third Apes movie breathes fresh air into [the] series.
DVDLaser - 7/10 by Douglas Pratt the film is a highly satisfying mix of satire and suspense
BBC.com - 6/10 by Tom Coates It works fairly well as the central movie of the franchise but will have little to offer non-devotees.
eFilmCritic.com - 6/10 by Scott Weinberg Brings just enough of a twist to the series' conventions.
eFilmCritic.com - 6/10 by Rob Gonsalves Passable entertainment, but it's no fun watching the likable, witty Cornelius and Zira become hairy martyrs.
Capital Times (Madison, WI) - 5/10 by Rob Thomas The last of the "Ape" sequels that's worth watching.
User Review - 10/10 by Gordon T My Favorite APES movie: The Time Continuum explained: An Artist Painting a Picture of Himself Painting a Picture of Himself Painting a Picture of Himself. Imagine if the artist jumped from one painting to the next. AWESOME SCIENCE-FICTION!!!! Zera and Cornilous escape from the exploding Planet of the apes and wind-up on Planet Earth in 1971, Zera's pregnant with Caesar and both parents are killed when the humans hypnotize Zera to discover the henius experiments Apes performed on Humans. Zera and Cornelius' deaths were devastating to me and I experienced an emotional uplift when Caesar began crying for his mother in Ricardo Maltaban's circus cage. CLASSIC SEQUEL after an abysmal Beneath the Planet of the Apes.
User Review - 10/10 by Robert I My favorite of the Apes. So funny and then it turns very tragic. Love it! Lovely, lovely movie.
User Review - 10/10 by Shake Z An excellent sequel to the excellent 1968 masterpiece. Escape from the Planet of the Apes includes suspense, drama, action, and comedy in equal measures, making it exciting, sad, and incredibly entertaining. This is a film that is definitely worth watching.
User Review - 10/10 by Panta O A la misma altura q la original y mucho mejor q Beneath the planet of the Apes.
User Review - 10/10 by Muffin M From Beneath to Escaping the Planet of the Apes is a crucial and drastic transition. This time around is different. One of the things I personally love and enjoy the most of this franchise is that it plays with the most important sub-genres of sci-fiction. Time travel in this case, and "basically" an altered universe.The main tone and themes are really well played, and are really believable. The make-up is great and the acting too. So much joy seeing Zira and Cornelius finally being the protagonists of this picture. Funny, Bizarre and with Political issues like the first one. Escape may not be a Masterpiece like the first one,but still is a personal favorite and damn-good film. A role-changer for this franchise, it responds to critical paranoia that our representatives may have in their personal greed/ quest for power, and how they dare to harm innocent beings... wonder what's next. Brilliant.
