Review This fourth entry into the Apes series is by far the darkest and most violent entry in the series. The good-natured tone of the previous Apes movies is replaced by this ugly tale of slavery, totalitarianism, repression, and revolution...The film turns its attention to the return of Armando (Ricardo Montalban, reprising his role from the third Apes), leading Milo, the son of the fallen Cornelius and Zira, around by a leash. We learn that Zira intentionally switched Milo at the tail end of Escape to thwart the government agents and hold true to the prophecies of an ape revolution. After alarming police agents in the plaza, Armando tells Milo to get out of town. Milo heads down to the docks and is accidentally transported to a strange "ape indoctrination" camp, where apes are taught how to serve drinks in loud discos...Arthur Jacobs must have paid off the MPAA to get this film a PG rating. Points for getting social commentary into the film, but the film comes off as cheap, forced, and resembling a high school production. The ape makeup is now made up of more of those cheap gorilla masks, the acting is horrible, and Roddy McDowall lends a dark, militaristic tone to the role of Caesar. This bleak chapter of the Apes saga strived to echo the sentiments of many of its fellow films released that year, such as Dirty Harry and Shaft. Not easy to do in a cheap monkey mask from a thrift shop.

Fred Topel, About.com The best of the series.
The SF, Horror and Fantasy Film Review Some of the series' finest writing and certainly Roddy McDowall's best performance!
TV Guide A hard-edged thriller featuring a sleekly sinister look and a disturbing tone that's quite different from any of the other films in the series.
