Cut and paste Apes antics for the final time
24 March 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The last of the made-for-TV films in the PLANET OF THE APES series, which were made simply by stringing together two episodes from the short-lived TV series. At least this one is a lot better than the previous instalment, the deathly dull LIFE, LIBERTY & PURSUIT ON THE PLANET OF THE APES. That's purely because the two TV episodes chosen here are more fun.

Not that they have much in common. The first half involves humans being thrown into shark-infested waters by the apes; it's just about passable, although the story seems oddly light and irrelevant. The second half is better, as it involves humans and apes teaming up to create a hang-glider which will allow the humans to escape their captors. At least this has plenty of incident and some imagination to keep it going. Saying that, these films are still rather pointless as simply watching the TV series would be a better bet instead.
