Horse racing and tyranny on the Planet of the Apes
18 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

Another poor cut-and-paste TV movie amalgamated from a couple of episodes of the 1970s PLANET OF THE APES TV series. This one is even more obviously stitched together than the others, seeing as how the episodes aren't even remotely connected. The first half of the film is centred around a horse race between a human and an ape; the second half is about a tyrannous ape whom the humans must seek to depose.

The episodes are fairly low rent by modern standards, enlivened only by the classic ape costumes and a handful of fight scenes. The human cast members are invariably wooden and much less interesting than their simian counterparts. The best part of the TV movie is the horse race, which is handled well with some exciting moments to enjoy; the second half by comparison is rather stodgy and poorly handled. Thankfully, I've seen all of these TV movie compendiums now, so I don't have to - nor wish to - watch any of them ever again!
