Storyline

Time of the Apes is a strung-together movie made from several episodes of a Japanese TV show. Big-hipped Catherine and her two charges, Johnny (who "doesn't care") and Caroline, are sent to some alternate time-line by being frozen in cryogenic tubes during an earthquake. They end up on a planet where apes rule humans but are ruled themselves by a supercomputer named "UECOM", which is a malevolent artificial being created by humans. Written by Jonah Falcon <jonahnynla@mindspring.com>

Possibly the worst film I've ever seen.
14 April 2000 | by Kent PennySee all my reviews

This was appalling. My neighbour made me watch it and believe me I begged him to turn it off!

What have we got here? A totally disjointed Japanese-made film poorly dubbed into English.

Nothing really made sense and to be honest I have no idea what the thing was about, except to say a woman and some annoying kids get trapped in an alternate reality where apes rule the planet. (No, I didn't seen Charlton Heston ride past crying, "You maniacs, you blew it up!")

It's so bad, I recommend you get a copy for when unwanted visitors drop by. "Yeah, sure you can come in. I'm watching Time of The Apes. Take a seat!" Guaranteed they will leave within 15 minutes!

As a matter of fact, I'm looking for a copy of this film myself.
