warning: awful "movie" with clear vote stuffing in the rating
1 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a boy I saw and loved the original Planet of the Apes at a movie house. This weekend FMC featured all movies in the franchise, this included. This so-called movie is the product of cobbling together episodes from the 1974 Planet of the Apes series (deservedly canceled halfway through its first season). The so-called movie is so bad; no real plot, lame dialog, cheesy vinyl costumes, cheap stock sound effects, completely unbelievable talking and clean-shaven humans with 70's style big disco hair, and to top it off, a laughable absence of APES! The only rational conclusion one can draw is that the rating of 10 from 33% voting can only be a attempt to stuff the ballot box. So be warned... or better, watch for 10 minutes and come back here and set the rating right.
