Brent discovers Taylor's connection to Nova by her having his dog tags. In the first film he does not have dog tags when he is captured by the apes, or when he rides off at the end of the film. There is nowhere he would have gotten them since his ship sank and his supplies and clothes were destroyed by the indigenous humans. See more »
Very high quality sequel to the original. No, it was not quite as good as the original but the performances and the story were both strong. Just watched it on DVD and forgot about how creepy the underground mutant people were. Especially when they were chanting to their "god". James Franciscus gave a very good performance and Linda Harrison is simply HOT! The ending was a little too abrupt but the movie is well worth seeing and owning on DVD.
