Quite often Hollywood rushed to capitalize on a winner and they are too quick to put something on film. The result is a sequel like this one. It wasn't even a contender.
If you like the Planet of the Apes story, then you are going to watch just because it is entertaining. You like the message of the films, and it did get a bit stranger in this one.
James Franciscus heads on the trail of Taylor (Charlton Heston) to see what happened. He is soon pursued by apes, who have become more aggressive. He gets saved by Taylor's girl, Nova (Linda Harrison), a sight for sore eyes.
Franciscus find that there are people living under the city of New York. They are advanced and use their minds to communicate and to control. They can even keep their hands clean by getting their enemies to kill each other. They worship an atomic missile. The thing that got them in the fix they are in becomes their god. Go figure.
Worth watching, but not spectacular.
