When you reach a line like "Glory be to the Bomb, and to the Holy Fallout. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be. World without end. Amen" it's pretty much over, isn't it?. Why would humans who bombed themselves into near oblivion be worshiping the very thing that helped get them there? I'm also wondering how these humans who have advanced to the acquisition of great telepathic powers never moved to the surface. I guess fresh air and sunlight just never interested them that much. Sure, there was atomic fallout and they've got the face burn to prove it, but since they'd survived, why not go above ground? Also, how had they transformed into gazing, telepathic zombies from murdering humans in just a few short years (see Battle for the Planet of the Apes). They also did a real nice job cleaning up that burnt out hell hole as well. But at the same time, these advanced humans have no clue that the bomb they've got will destroy the world; nevertheless, some sub-humans from the 20th century have it all sussed. And had life really gotten so bad that these zombies had to terminate the planet they lived on? I'd seek some therapy first. You know, clean slate and all? Finally, there's really just not much to hold interest for the average viewer here. The story line is very weak and characters lack any depth whatsoever. For me, this is the worst of the five original films. You only need to watch this if you want continuity. As a stand alone movie, almost a complete waste of time.
