Even Charlton Heston couldn't sink this'n, ( I love to bash him) with a script by Rod Serling and just nimble enough direction from Franklin Schaffer. Heston had worked with him in The War Lord, which also had Maurice (Dr. Zaius) Evans. Wish that one was in the catalog at KCPL.

This particular copy (SFPL Bar-code # 31223120014023) is too damaged to convert.
Scratches abound....

This was a very good move we enjoyed it as much as the 1st one. After watching the show we viewed the added DVD that showed how the movie was made and that was terrific. Learned a lot and appreciate all the work that went into the movies production. I give it a full 4 star rating to get a 5 from me it has to be out of this world.

I thought this movie would be good when I got it, but it was terrible. It was boring, unenjoyable and it felt like it was mocking religion.

When this movie came out I avoided it because I could not imagine myself watching a movie where chimps were running the world. This evening we watched and found it to be entertaining. Look forward to watching the next two.

Definitely a genre defining movie...almost fifty years old, and still holds up well...makeup was breath-taking in its time, but looks just a little off by today's standards. What makes this such a great movie is the acting, the script, and the directing...the action sequences use actual stunt men (imagine that!?), and are tightly directed and edited...script by Rod Serling...how can you miss with talent like that?

The original and still the best in my opinion.

A bad movie that doesn't capture Tim Burton's sense of cinematography. The original one is way better!

George Taylor: Imagine me needing someone. Back on Earth I never did. Oh, there were women. Lots of women. Lots of love-making but no love. You see, that was the kind of world we'd made. So I left, because there was no one to hold me there.
