The first and the original is the only good one. Dated but wonderful.

They don't make movies like this anymore.
A true American Classic.

There is no denying that this is a classic. The cast is really good and has a good plot and a great ending. Unfortunately some of the costuming has not aged well although it was very good for its time and the first half hour was a little boring.

8.3/10

2nd favorite only to the newest of the reset. Definitely the best of the old movies. IT'S A MAD HOUSE!

"Planet of the Apes" holds up surprisingly well. Sure, the ape masks look a bit ridiculous but the film is saved by its themes, writing, beautiful landscapes, and the emotions behind the masks. An astronaut played by Charlton Heston crash lands on a topsy-turvy planet where apes are the intelligent species and humans are savages. "Apes" explores the relationship between science and religion and how one can stop the advancement of the other.

The years haven't been kind to this Sci-Fi classic, but it is still a great film, with echoes of George Orwell. I love the ending.

Puntaje Original: 8.0

Profundamente filosófica, y una dura crítica social que convierte a Planet of the Apes un clásico esencial del cine.

Director Franklin J. Schaffner's memorable sci-fi surprisingly passes the test of time in what it still is a smartly written, inventive and creatively crafted film, that not only has amazing effects and terrific make up, but also a story-ahead-of-its-time, with the presence of the always amazing Charlton Heston in what could be his definitive role, not to mention its always haunting-yet-iconic ending, considered by many as one of the best twists in cinema history.

The kind of biting satire of humanity that only a high-concept, B-grade science fiction can deliver.
½ July 23, 2017
It lives up to the hype! Brimming with suspense and intrigue, this blockbuster has a mind while still scoring in the entertainment department.
July 20, 2017
A great film with thought-provoking themes
July 18, 2017
This has to be one of the best films ever made.
July 17, 2017
Amazing movie! So inventive and original as well as witty and somewhat humorous. I loved it!
July 17, 2017
A what if film with an all-star cast, endearing plot, and one of the best plot twist in cinema history. Thought provoking and brilliant scripted, Planet Of The Apes is a classic that still holds up.
½ July 15, 2017
Once we got to the Apes, the movie becomes great. The themes this movie presents are very interesting and the acting from everyone is great, even Heston does okay.
July 14, 2017
Fantastic film. Even though some of the effects and camera techniques are a bit dated, the film holds up in its story and themes. Charlton Heston shows he's more than just a one trick pony and carried this film on his back.
July 14, 2017
This is one of the best sci-fi movies ever made, and that ending was incredible. Give it a watch.
July 13, 2017
Though the ending is obvious (especially considering all the apparent coincidences since it is originally thought to be an alien planet despite the Earth animals or the English language being used) which is problematic but the journey to that ending is relatively enjoyable. The cast is solid, I like the practical effects, the score by Jerry Goldsmith is great, the action is decent and the thought-provoking commentary that is clearly present in the plot really does make the film engrossing.
July 12, 2017
Planet of the Apes still holds up as a classic today with a very compelling story and an unforgettable ending. If you haven't seen by now, get your stinking paws on it.
