Planet Of The Apes (1968)

The Saga Begins! Charlton Heston and Roddy McDowall star in this legendary science fiction master piece. Astronaut Taylor (Heston) crash lands on a distant planet ruled by apes who use a primitive race of humans for experimentation and sport. Soon Taylor finds himself among the hunted, his life in the hands of a benevolent chimpanzee (McDowall). Things light up once Taylor reveals himself, reveals that he a human, can talk!

So Cornelius (McDowall) and Zira (Kim Hunter) his wife, risk everything to stand up for, and save this human’s life. After a failed trial, and a failed attempt of human castration, Taylor escapes with Nova (Linda Harrison) his female counterpart to the Forbidden Zone. But there he doesn’t like what he sees! 

A really good movie. Kind of boring at times but I guess back in the 70’s it was high quality entertainment. The make up was awesome. The plot was good, and the acting great. Overall this is a classic you have to see no matter what.


An astronaut crew crash lands on a planet in the distant future where intelligent talking apes are the dominant species, and humans are the oppressed and enslaved.
