Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973)

Battle for the Planet of the Apes

Director: J. Lee Thompson

Writers: John William Corrington & Joyce Hooper Corrington

(Story by Paul Dehn)

(Characters Created by Pierre Boulle)

The last of the Apes series and definitely the weakest.  I didn’t hate it but it clearly suffers from a significantly lower budget.  The big final battle is almost embarrassing to watch because of how small it looks.  There are maybe 50 people involved in a fight for the fate of the planet and it is totally ridiculous.  Also a statue sheds a tear.  Yeah.  Not the best.
