Plot Summary
In this third sequel to "Planet of the Apes," the apes turn the tables on the human Earth population when they lead a revolt against their cruel masters in the distant year of 1990. By doing this it creates the time loop that leads to the first film. "Conquest of the Planet of the Apes" is cinematically etched in broad, brash strokes slashing social satire and science fiction suspense with large-scale spectacle.

  • Dismally lurid stuff, ham-fistedly directed and low on credibility. show more

  • The Planet of the Apes films had always been political, but with Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, things got angry. And it was awesome. show more

  • Wringing the last drops out of the idea, it strains to stay on-side, but it remains true enough to the spirit of the series to get it over the line. show more
