Escape from the Planet of the Apes is an excellent film, almost as good as the original Planet of the Apes.

Passable entertainment, but it's no fun watching the likable, witty Cornelius and Zira become hairy martyrs.

It's a long way down from even the second in the series.

One of the better new movies in town, and better in a genre -- science-fiction -- that at the crucial middle level where the history of movies is made, if not written, has recently been not so much bad as invisible.

The last of the "Ape" sequels that's worth watching.

Possibly the least of the series, but certainly not a predictable sequel.

feels like a quickie insert that is needed to progress the larger narrative, but doesn't have enough meat on it to deserve its own film

It works fairly well as the central movie of the franchise but will have little to offer non-devotees.

This second sequel serves as little more than a light appetizer with a memorable and poignant ending.

Regarded by some as the best of the Planet of the Apes sequels, maybe even on a par with the 1968 Charlton Heston original itself, this third Apes movie breathes fresh air into [the] series.
