Movie Reviews

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.
Alternate Ending - 7/10 by Tim Brayton Easily the strangest film in the series, and a good candidate for the strangest studio-made genre film of the 1970s.
DVDLaser - 7/10 by Douglas Pratt the film is a highly satisfying mix of satire and suspense
Old School Reviews - 6/10 by John A. Nesbit This second sequel serves as little more than a light appetizer with a memorable and poignant ending.
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 Rob Gonsalves Passable entertainment, but it's no fun watching the likable, witty Cornelius and Zira become hairy martyrs.
eFilmCritic.com - 6/10 by Scott Weinberg Brings just enough of a twist to the series' conventions.
Capital Times (Madison, WI) - 5/10 by Rob Thomas The last of the "Ape" sequels that's worth watching.
User Review - 10/10 by Dean W The best of the Apes series, acting, writing pacing and dialog are unusually good for a 3rd entry into a franchise. The only ape movie without big "ape" battle scenes and set in "contemporary" (re 1970) america, this is the one that set up the ape history that led to the domination of ape over man. The following sequels just filled in the gaps. Also the one with the most humor then in the second half turns dark and has a heart wrenching ending.
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 Private U My favorite sequel, so great. Definitely the best sequel, don't even try and tell me Conquest is better, it ain't.
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.
