Escape From The Planet of The Apes

Possibly the most popular of the four sequals to "Planet of The Apes". And also very shocking.

The movie begins with Taylors spaceship being discovered in the ocean. The army brings it ashore and three astronauts emerge in space-suits with helmets. They remove the helmets to reveal that they are Cornelius,Zira and Dr.Milo. The army takes them to their base,then to the zoo. The three apes make sure not to talk to the humans during this time.

Dr.Milo explains to Cornelius and Zira that he knows exactly what happened to them. Supposedly,Milo had went to the Forbidden Zone and escavated Taylors spaceship from the lake and worked on it and got it working.
Milo tells Cornelius and Zira that after they took off and they saw the earth destroyed,they passed through a ripple in time and travelled backwards to earths past.

Milo is killed and the apes make their biggest mistake;they talk to the humans. An even bigger mistake is when Cornelius says that they come from earths future and that one day apes will rule over man.

Corneilius and Zira are at first treated royally,but then they are hunted by Dr.Otto Hessline (played by Eric Braeden).

I will not go into the ending of this film because if you have not seen it,the ending is riviting. You will not be disappointed.

Interestingly,an opening sequence aboard Taylors spaceship with Cornelius,Zira and Milo was in fact filmed and it did show the earth destroyed by the blast from the bomb Taylor detinated in "Beneath The Planet of The Apes",but that scene was cut out completely and it rests in the film vaults. It has yet to be seen by anyone outside of the people at 20th Century Fox.

Excellent!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

3rd movie from the Planet Of The Apes, which presents Cornellius & Zira coming back from the future with a scientist named Milo, who was the one responsible for repairing Taylors craft from the 1st movie.

When a special commision discovers that Apes will be responsible for ending the Human civilization, Ziras unborn baby is sentence for extermination and then escape and struggle for survival.

A great 3rd installment, very nice and accurate...

Like this one a lot, I have seen the whole series more than 12 times or so...

A+++++ and very rare on VHS!

the best in the series of the apes movies A MUST

I STILL REMEMBER SEEING THIS AT THE MOVIE THEATRE BACK IN THE EARLY 70'S. IT STUCK TO MY HEAD, AND IT STILL DOES. YOU HAVE TO WATCH THE FIRST 2 MOVIES, PLANET OF THE APES AND BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES, TO GET IN THE THIRD ONE. THE MOVIE MAKES YOU FINALLY GO WITH THE APE SIDE! FUNNY, SAD AND WILL MAKE YOU ANGRY MOVIE...BUT IN A GOOD WAY. GET, BUY IT, AND AFTER YOU SEE IT, YOU'LL WANNA WATCH THE FOURTH ONE. CONQUEST FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES..TRUST ME...GO APE!!!!
