Overview

Escape From the Planet of the Apes is the third in the series of films based upon the Planet of the Apes characters created by novelist Pierre Boule. At the end of the second film, the centuries-in-the-future world colonized by simians was destroyed, but apes Cornelius Roddy McDowell and Zira Kim Hunter were able to escape in the space vessel left behind by 20th-century astronaut Charlton Heston. Cornelius and Zira pass through another time warp, finding themselves in the Earth of the 1970s. When they reveal their ability to speak, the apes are first treated as curiosities, then as threats when the government, believing the story that the Earth will eventually be inherited by monkeys, tries to prevent the birth of Zira's baby. Given shelter by sympathetic circus-owner Ricardo Montalban, Cornelius and Zira are nonetheless "neutralized" by the government's special forces--but not soon enough to prevent the birth of their highly intelligent chimpanzee baby. What happens to that infant is the subject of the fourth "Apes" entry, 1972's Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
The Planet of the Apes films were never exactly straight-faced, but the third installment surely remains the most at home with its own campiness. Pseudoscience and strained plotting abound, but the film almost never makes the mistake of taking itself too seriously. By reversing the premise of the first two movies and bringing the far-future ape characters to the present-day "planet of the humans," the filmmakers are able to indulge in classic fish-out-of-water gags and poke fun at celebrity culture while furthering their franchise and making good use of the comic chemistry between lead apes Kim Hunter and Roddy McDowall returning to the role of Cornelius after sitting out the second installment. Ricardo Montalban fills the second of his three memorable sci-fi roles as Armando, a kindly circus owner who's miles away from his Fantasy Island and Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan characters, while Natalie Trundy proves game enough to poke fun at damsel-in-distress stereotypes as Dr. Stephanie Branton, the sweetest and surely the prettiest of the film's scientific supporting players. Memorable sequences include the spectacle of human actors in expensive ape makeup playing scenes with a guy in a cheap gorilla suit; a montage of Hunter's Zira trying on frocks and gowns like any other flashing-eyed starlet; and the deliciously tongue-in-cheek opening sequence, which turns sci-fi clichés on their heads. If only things didn't get so deadly serious during the mock-operatic finale, Escape From the Planet of the Apes would be a comedy classic. As is, the not-so-surprise ending restores the film's comic luster just before the credits roll.
