Movie Reviews

Old School Reviews - 8/10 by John A. Nesbit With the budgets decreasing, creative ideas waning, and costumes and makeup getting more worn-out, it's a good thing that this is the final sequel.
Q Network Film Desk - 6/10 by James Kendrick The only film in the series to end on a positive note.
Chicago Sun-Times - 5/10 by Roger Ebert Battle looks like the last gap of a dying series, a movie made simply to wring the dollars out of any remaining ape fans.
Alternate Ending - 5/10 by Tim Brayton Battle... is where the dwindling budgets of the film in this series finally manage to score a fatal hit.
Video-Reviewmaster.com - 5/10 by Steve Crum Unnecessary sequel is nonetheless entertaining; Roddy Mcdowall back in simian shape.
BBC.com - 4/10 by Tom Coates The Planet of the Apes series started well, and gradually decreased in budget and quality. By Battle the budget is all but gone, and all the believability and excitement has gone with it.
TV Guide Magazine - 4/10 by Michael Scheinfeld Episode number five of the APES series, is the last and least of the bunch, with a juvenile script and parsimonious production values more befitting the various APES merchandising tie-ins (including toys, comic books, and action figures) than the fourth sequel to one of the finest science-fiction films in history.
The A.V. Club - 4/10 by Noel Murray The bloodiest of the Apes films, and one of the most despairing.
Empire - 4/10 by Ian Nathan Largely devoid of any charm or intelligence that made other Apes films entertaining, this one should be buried in the Forbidden Zone.
Sci-Fi Movie Page - 3/10 by James O'Ehley [For] completists only and definitely counts as the worst in the entire series.
Citysearch - 1/10 by Dan Fazio The bluntest, cheapest and worst of the 'Apes' movies.
User Review - 10/10 by Bradley F This is the fifth and final installment of the Planet of the Apes movie series. I think it did a good job of wrapping everything up. The movie concerns the world 20 years after Caeser's ape revolution. Man has destroyed himself with nuclear weapons, and the apes and some humans are living in a semblance of harmony in a small agricultural village close by the city where they came from. This movie gives you some background information on how things became the way they were in the first movie. You'll see the apes wearing the clothes they had in the first movie, which appear to be modified variations of the clothing they were required to wear while in servitude to humans. The only ones that broke the trend were the gorillas. They changed their outfits entirely. That may have been out of necessity, since they formed themselves into an army of sorts, but then again it was probably out of arrogance. The gorillas, of all the simians that lived in the village, seemed to be the most ignorant, stupid, and arrogant. Of all of them, they were in fact the only ones that seemed that way. They harbored a hatred for humans, and a contempt for their fellow simians. The gorilla that placed himself in their leadership position, as general, was named Aldo. He was very proud, but not too bright. He was ambitious, but brutish in his tactics. This movie is a story of good conquering evil, through evils own folly. You also get to see how Caeser's foreknowledge, handed down from his parents, along with guidance from his orangutan friend, allows him to alter the future, creating a peaceful, harmonious coexistence for humans and apes. This movie emphasizes the importance of equality among people. It promotes friendship and cooperation. It also demonstrates that no person is sacrosanct. Enjoy!
