Film Review

… not just for humanity in the context of the story but for the makers of this sorry excuse for a motion picture.This "continuation" of Franklin J. Schaffner's «Planet of the Apes (1968)» (an eight of out ten, in my book) is remarkable only in one regard: Seldomly did a big-budget sequel with key people from the first outing still attached ever achieve such a dramatic distance in quality from its predecessor.Instead of a gripping drama, developed from smart philosophical speculation and posing some pretty big questions about the human condition (without making the mistake of biting off more than it could chew) – yes, that's what Schaffner's film was for me –, all we get here is a stupendously stupid parade of bad ideas¹.Recycle most of the plot points from the original, put in some cheap, forced Vietnam War allegories, add a bunch of funny, nuke-worshipping mutant-psychics (or whatever you wanna call those radioactively contaminated,…

Beneath the Planet of the Apes has never enjoyed the classic status of its illustrious progenitor, and this is a pity since, in many ways, it is at least as good a film.The shock ending of the 1968 Planet was so effective that it demanded some explanation as to what had led to the state of affairs revealed in the first movie. And so the first thing to do was to fling another human into the scenario – James Franciscus (Charlton Heston-lite), on the trail of Taylor – skip most of the ape revelations (been there, done that), and get on with the new stuff. Which turns out to be a bunch of human mutants with mental powers living in the underground ruins of New York. Cue Taylor turning up, the apes arriving, and Taylor pushing the kablooie button, activating the Armageddon bomb (thereby precluding Heston appearing in any further sequels)(or, indeed, any sequels)(then again, scriptwriters can be very imaginative…) It occurs to me that Taylor's action here – destroying the planet – is …

The critics think this is the best of the sequels in the five part series, I think Escape from… is much better, but I suppose I can see small reasons for them to think that, from director Ted Post (Hang 'Em High, Magnum Force). Basically it starts where the last the first film left off, just after Taylor (Charlton Heston) has discovered the Planet of the Apes is in fact the Earth three-thousand years later, seeing the Statue of Liberty in the sand, and we return to the ship he landed in, where another two survivors have woken up and got out. One quickly dies, but Brent (James Franciscus, who resembles Heston), after finding Nova (Linda Harrison) with Taylor's tag goes in search of him, quickly finding the community of walking talking apes. As before, the only ape determined to help him is Dr. Zira (Kim Hunter), with brief husband Cornelius (David Watson, replacing an unavailable Roddy MacDowall, who only appears in the opening first film archive), who knew Taylor well, and…
