Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Planet of the Apes is an amazing film.
Fresh: It is quickly paced, completely entertaining, and its philosophical pretensions don't get in the way.
Fresh: Planet of the Apes is one of those rare films whose historical impact outweighs its quality. It's a good film, but not a classic.
Fresh: Seminal simian sci-fi that blends satire with the drive and pace of an adventure story.
It's such a legendary and amazing piece for 1968. I watch 5 times a week on my iPad because it's so terrific.
