Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Social commentary was not one of this glum film's strong points.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

[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.

I had forgotten how dreadful Beneath the Planet of the Apes was.

The best it would seem the screenwriters would come up with was having another NASA astronaut crash-land on the planet in which apes are the dominant species and the humans inferior.

More rubbery ape masks, but grimmer and sillier.

| Original Score: 2/5

November 12, 2002

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.

One of the more admirable "Apes" sequels, warts and all.

A lot less poky than the original, and generally more entertaining.
