Let's face it, all of the sequels to Planet Of The Apes were rubbish but this one relocated to 70s America is not the worst. It has some charm; particularly during the courtroom sequence and when the apes get the "star" treatment on the talk show circuit, but it looks and feels like a cheap TV movie.

3.5/4 

Here the focus is on our two main chimps surviving in a modern human ruled world and there is much more attention to character and political issues. Moral questions are raised and the movie ends on an emotionally charged note. By far, my favorite of the sequels.
