Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Planet of the Apes

Excellent directed science fiction with epic atmosphere and Charlton Heston doing one of his most memorable roles delivering some of his most quoted lines. The ape makeup still holds okay up today even if we have come a long way since 68. A lot of memorable moments. The ending doesn't fool anyone anymore because everyone knows it, but the fact is it still kick a punch decades later even when I know how it ends.
