I completely agree with chatpilot, it's quite thought provocative, but what an excellent idea of a sci-fi movie giving birth to the endless series and remakes! They don't do movies like these anymore, where they really like to questionize and make you take a stand and make parallels. It's the first time i've seen it, and this is by far the best one, 'Rise' is cool too though 9/10

I thoroughly enjoyed this film! It brought to the forefront the ongoing debate between science and religion. Other underlying themes were those on slavery and mans inhumanity to man as demonstrated through the apes treatment of humans. Also highlighted was man superiority complex reflected through the apes classification of them being the highest rung on the evolutionary ladder. It is worth a watch particularly with these and other social issues in mind.

WOW, this is a older movie, didn't realize this movie was like 44 years old even though I've watched it before. They did a great job, never did like the way it ended though.

Another Classic film that spawned SO many sequels and other movies into the SCI-FI era. A Very Good watch.

The "reimagineered" version in 2001 was crap! This original is still one of the best sci-fi films ever made, and the 2nd one Beneath The Planet Of The Apes wasn't bad either!

Its a madhouse,a madhouse,a madhouse!!!!!!!! Is there really anything else to be said about this classic Sci/Fi Masterpiece? Richard matheson and Charlton Heston all rolled into ONE!The First of Five Movies and a shortlived T.V.series with a saturdaymorning cartoon anime(american) that followed...Hopefully Tim Burton will follow up his version with a sequel starring hometown hero,Johnny Depp,from the bluegrass state....

This the original from 1968 is still the best out of all the Ape movies including the latest ones. The make-up alone and the movie is years and years ahead of it's time. It's a shame FOX cheated the next three movies in the 70's withholding back on the budget and alternately went for Ape masks. Tim Burtons remake at the turn of the century is still a masterpiece including the make-up. The new ones are excellent but CGI takes away the realness of it all. 10/10

I agree with drkam6 this is a timeless masterpiece. Each person seems to take away something a bit different. This film causes us to examine ourselves and move outside the box - good conversation starter. The sequel is just a good!
