Thoughts on this third instalment of the original Apes saga?
I watched this again a little earlier today. It is really good. Roddy and Kim are excellent, as is the chilling performance of Eric Braeden as Doctor Hasslien with his "Herod lacked our resources" line and his decision to try and alter history if he could.
One of the better Ape films and nudging with the first to be best. (Although I love BENEATH too for simply being mad!)
And, if one can't be bothered to watch the entire original film....
If you put the preposterousness of it to one side, there's plenty to enjoy here. It’s a scathing satire on (then) modern life, riffing many social problems of the time such as nuclear activity, (lack of) women’s rights, race and fashion.
I very much like the shift in tone that happens in this film about halfway through.
From fish out of water comedy to tragedy.
I liked it but nothing can compare to the first and best in the series!
I wouldn't even try to compare the two. They're such different concepts that comparisons are impossible. The only things in common between the first and third are the characters of the apes. Everything else is different. Both are excellent movies in their own way.
