Film Review - Battle for the Planet of the Apes
When is this ever going to end? Battle for the Planet of the Apes is the fifth and worst of the Apes series.
It's 20 years after Conquest of the Planet of the Apes. The Apes have taken control and have a small city. Humans are second-class citizens. Nearby is the Forbidden City, where a few radiation-contaminated humans still live. (I guess humans are supposed to be too stupid to move away from radiation.)
Caesar, (you know, the "smart" ape), decides to go back to the Forbidden City to look for records of his parents. This pisses off the glow-in-the-dark stupid humans and what you get is about as good as a poor made-for-TV movie.
Thank the Lawgiver, this series is over.
Directed by J. Lee Thompson
