This first sequel to Planet of the Apes isn't bad, but already shows the way the original conception was to degenerate into routine comic strip adventure.
[A] quickie follow-up that vainly tries to imitate the look of the original on an obviously limited budget, and for the most part, eschews the philosophical, social, and racial subtext of the first film in favor of straightforward shoot-em-up.
One of the best sequels ever, building on the story while re-delivering what fans liked about the first
More rubbery ape masks, but grimmer and sillier.
An effective sequel that takes an increasingly dark look at the unavoidable nature of war.
Loved it, despite the hokey costumes!
One of the more admirable "Apes" sequels, warts and all.
gives a new meaning to the intolerable hell that sequels always seem to deliver
As the apes close in and the mutants squeal their annoying noises, it's hard to care which side wins or loses, and that is a great disappointment after the excitement of the first film.
